Recipe for Strawberry Cheesecake ( this recipe came from one of the restaurants from Walt Disney World)

  10 Ounce pound cake or butter cake
  3 Packages (8 ounces each) softened cream cheese
  1 Package (3 ounces) softened cream cheese
   Cup sugar
  1/8 Teaspoon lemon extract
  1/8 Teaspoon orange extract
  1 Teaspoon vanilla
  3 Beaten eggs
  2 Beaten egg yolks
   Cup heavy cream
Preheat oven to 400F degrees.
Cover bottom and sides of 9 inch spring form pan with foil.
Cut pound cake into thin slices; line bottom of spring form pan piecing to make solid layer.
Blend cream cheese until smooth; add sugar and extracts blending until smooth.
Beat eggs and yolks together and add slowly to cheese mixture beating until smooth.
Blend in cream; pour into cake lined pan.
Set pan in a larger pan and fill half way up pan with hot water.
Set both pans in oven and bake 35 to 40 minutes until cake is firm.
Remove from water bath and cool; chill until cold.


Strawberry Topping:
   Cup water
  1/3 Cup sugar
  1/8 Teaspoon red food coloring

Soften gelatin in 1 tablespoon water; add gelatin and lemon juice to cooked mixture; blend and cool.
Wash and dry strawberries, remove caps and stir into cooled cooked mixture; toss and coat all berries.
Whip heavy cream with 1 tablespoon sugar until stiff.
To Serve the Strawberry Cheesecake Recipe:
Arrange thinly sliced pound cake (1/8 to inches thick) over top of cold cheesecake.
Arrange strawberries on top of pound cake; spoon whipped cream on top around edge before serving.


I also like lemon filling in a butter cake so if you don't want to make the you can use this filling with your butter cake. You can find it here http://www.painlesscooking.com/cake-filling-recipes.html

I hope your husband likes one of these recipes.
