My in-laws are coming to town this weekend and after much planning and debating and stressing, I’ve decided this will be the ultimate brunch item that will be served.

It’s ridiculously easy and so unbelievably impressive without any of the fuss or stress. I don’t even know what I was worried about. And I get to prep everything the night before.

So now I don’t have to worry about a single thing in the morning. Nope. I can simply take this out of the fridge, let it sit at room temperature for 30 minutes, and then bake for an hour or so.

And it really looks like the most fancy breakfast item ever that took hours of slaving away in the kitchen, especially with the fresh raspberry topping and that beautiful dusting of confectioners’ sugar. Not to mention that ooey, gooey cream cheese filling. It’s legit so so good.

    Hi! Just want to say that I made this recipe for breakfast this morning and what a hit it was!! I loved how easy it was. I have made several make-ahead breakfast dishes but this was by far the easiest and quickest. Thank you so much!

  6. Does the cream cheese melt ? It looks like it is still in pieces.

  7. What am I doing wrong? I can’t get it done in the middle!

  8. Do you think this would work well as a dessert?
