Hi Nancy,
I have read several postings on Smearcase Cake (pronounced shmeer-kay-za cake ). I found this on line from a featured article about the origin of the recipe and this is the recipe sent in with the article. Sounds wonderful and I am going to try it soon.

Smearcase Cake

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup cooking oil
1 cup granulated sugar

16 ounces cream cheese
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons flour
3 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
13-ounce can evaporated milk

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Sift together the flour and baking powder. Add eggs, oil and sugar, stir well. Press on the bottom and up the sides of a 9- by 13-inch pan. Set aside.
Mix all filling ingredients; beat until smooth. Pour filling over cake. Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake for 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours.
