1/2 Stick Unsalted Butter, Softened
1/3 C + 1/4 C Sugar
1 3/4 C Cake Flour
1 1/2 t Baking Powder
1/2 t salt
1 1/2 Sticks Unsalted Butter, Softened
1 C Sugar
1 Whole Egg and 1 Large Egg Yolk + 1 Egg
1 1/2 t + 1/4 t Vanilla Extract
3/4 C Whole Milk
1 8 Ounce Package Cream Cheese

Heat oven to 375 degrees F.

Line a 9 Inch Springform Pan with parchment paper, clipping side onto the base after the paper. Trim excess. (Or cut a circle to fit a 9 inch round cake pan)

Rub the first 1/2 stick of softened butter on the bottom and sides of the pan, leaving a thicker layer on the bottom, as evenly as you can. Pour 1/3 cup sugar into the buttered pan, swirl it around to lightly coat the sides and leave a heavier, even coating on the bottom of the pan. Set aside.

Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.

With and electric mixer or in the bowl of a standing mix, beat the remaining 1 and 1/2 C butter and 1 cup of sugar until pale and fluffy (5 minutes).

Add egg and yolk and vanilla, beat until combined.

At a low speed, add flour mix and milk alternately until just combined.

Spread batter evenly in prepared pan.

Combine the cream cheese with the remaining 1/4 cup sugar, egg and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla. Mix well with a blender.

Gently spread over the top of the cake batter.

Bake 45-50 minutes until golden brown and a toothpick or fork comes out clean.

Cool cake in pan 10 minutes. Remove parchment paper and let cool.

Serves 2-3

California Pizza Kitchen’s Chicken Tequila Fettuccine

1 pound dry spinach fettuccine
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, divided
2 tablespoons minced garlic (about 6 cloves)
2 tablespoons minced jalapeño pepper, seeds and veins removed if desired
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons gold tequila
2 tablespoons lime juice (from about 2 limes)
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/4 pounds chicken breast, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups heavy cream

In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the pasta until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes, or according to the package instructions.

Drain, very lightly oil (to keep the pasta from sticking) and set aside.

In a medium saucepan, cook one-third cup of the cilantro (reserve the rest for garnish), garlic and jalapeño with 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat until aromatic and the garlic is golden, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the broth, tequila and lime juice. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook until thickened to a paste-like consistency, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

In a small bowl, drizzle the soy sauce over the chicken pieces and set aside to marinate for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large sauté pan, heat the remaining butter over medium heat. Add the onion and red, yellow and green peppers, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables have wilted. Stir in the chicken and soy sauce, then the tequila/lime paste and cream.

Bring the mixture to a gentle boil and cook until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is thickened, several minutes. When the sauce is done, stir in the fettuccine and remaining cilantro.

Serve the dish family-style or plate on individual serving dishes.

Serve immediately.

Serves 4-6
