Duffs Cake & Applebees Dip

I was wondering if anybody had the recipe to a resturant called “Duffs” cake called Texas Tornado Cake. (its not a sheet cake) And if anyone had Applebees: Spinach and Artachoke dip? I would appreciate the help! Thanks, Amanda :slight_smile:

1 (10 ounce) box frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and roughly chopped
1 cup shredded parmesan-Romano cheese blend
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
10 ounces prepared Alfredo sauce
1 teaspoon minced garlic
4 ounces softened cream cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine ingredients thoroughly in a bowl and spread mixture into a small baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes or until cheeses are bubbling and melted.
