Yellow and Ricotta Cheese Cake

Delicious creamy cheese cake on the bottom,
this is one of the easiest and impressive
looking dessert cakes I've ever made.
I added some red cherries to the top of the
cheese mixture and they sank into the cake.
Served with a drizzle of black cherry sauce.
I made this in a prepared 10" spring-form pan.

1 yellow boxed cake mix
1-1/3 cups water
2 large eggs

32 ounces ricotta cheese
1 cup sour cream
2 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt

vegetable shortening
cherries if desired

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Prepare spring-form pan with
vegetable grease and flour.
Mix cake ingredients in a bowl
and blend for three minutes.
Pour into prepared spring-form pan.
Wash out batter from mixing bowl,
and make cheese cake filling by
combining eggs, cheese, sour cream,
vanilla, sugar and salt.
This will be a somewhat loose mixture.
Mix well and pour directly into
the center of cake batter.
Drop cherries on top of cheese
mixture if desired.
Bake for 1-1/2 hours or until a
cake tester comes out clean.
