Baking about 36-40 min at 350 degrees . You can serve it this way if you want…or you can elevate it a bit with our simple Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting!
For whipped cream cheese, you will need:
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese (let it come to room temperature for easier mixing)
1 cup white sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
In a small bowl, beat the whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Set aside in a large bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, salt and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
Gently combine the cream cheese mixture with the whipped cream.
