Duce De Leche Cream Cheese Coffe Cake
If there was one dessert I would spend all my little money on in middle school it had to be Entenmann’s cream cheese danish.  I recall an entire summer with an intense love affair with this butter cream cheese heaven, oh to be 13 again with the metabolism that was out of this world.  So in memory of my childhood……..and metabolism.

1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup dukes mayo

Spread half of the batter into the prepared cake pan with a spatula. Spread the cream cheese filling evenly on top. Top with remaining cake batter and smooth with a spatula.
