1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix

1/2 cup butter, melted

1 egg, beaten

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

2 eggs, beaten

1 ½ tbps lemon juice

1 tbsp flour

3 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar

Recipe:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 15 x 10 inch sheet pan.
  2. Mix together cake mix, butter or margarine, and 1 egg. Press mixture into pan. (It should look like play-doh.)
  3. In a small bowl, mix together cream cheese, 2 eggs, lemon juice, flour, and confectioners’ sugar. Pour mixture on top of cake mixture.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C), and bake for 25 to 35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Presentation:

  1. Sift about ½ cup powdered sugar on top.  Cool completely and cut into squares.

Variations:

You can adapt it to however you might imagine the ambrosia squares by adding different ingredients to the cream cheese.  Maybe add marshmallow cream, or chocolate, or raspberries, or vanilla extract.  Whatever you feel would qualify as “god-food,” you can add.

Ingredients:

2 cups Cheddar and Mozzarella (or Jack) cheese, grated and combined

3 Flour tortillas

3 tbsp Butter

3 tbsp Flour

¾ cup Water

¾ cup Milk

½ teaspoon Salt

¼ teaspoon Pepper

¼ tsp Garlic Powder

1 tbsp Cumin

3 tbsp Chili Powder

1 cup Sour Cream

Optional: Chopped black olives

Recipe:

1.      Roll up half of the grated cheese in tortillas, and place in baking pan.
2.      Brown Margarine and flour in a frying pan (it looks like a weird paste), the gradually add water and milk. Let mixture come to a boil then reduce heat and cook until thick (about 5 minutes) stirring occasionally. (Mine was a little lumpy, so I used an immersion mixer to smooth it out).
3.      Add salt, pepper, garlic, cumin and chili powder (adjust spices to taste).
4.      Remove from heat and stir in remaining cheese, as well as the sour cream.
5.      Pour mixture over the enchiladas, making sure the sauce covers all sides and top, and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, or until cheese in the center is completely melted.

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon vegan butter

2 tablespoons flour (add an extra tablespoon if you desire a more puddingy texture)

1 ½ cups nondairy milk (the more neutral the flavor the better, unless you desire almond or coconut flavored cookie drink, in which case use the corresponding milk)

2-3 tablespoons brown sugar, to taste

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ teaspoon baking soda

pinch of salt

2-3 tablespoons chocolate chips

Recipe:

Whisk together the butter and flour in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.

Cook for 3-5 minutes. The roux paste should be fragrant but should not be allowed to burn.

Whisk in the rest of the ingredients.

Bring to a low boil and cook for 10-15 minutes, whisking frequently.

Remove from heat when desired consistency is obtained (the nectar will thicken more as it cools).

Presentation:

Allow to cool completely before stirring in the chocolate chips.
