Easy Tiramisu Dessert

Betty Crocker calls this Easy Tiramisu Dessert, but that name is a little underwhelming for me.  What sounds better?  Cake.  Cake always sounds better.  Easy Tiramisu Cake!

My friend CR has made this for us a few times, and I’m only partly ashamed to say that we always finish off the entire pan.  It’s sweet and decadent but still light, and you don’t even need to turn on the oven.  Perfect for a hot summer night!

Substitutions: I made this even easier by buying two boxes of the Sara Lee pound cake slices instead of whole frozen pound cakes.  I also tried a new product, Kroger’s Greek Cream Cheese & Greek Yogurt, in place of the cream cheese.  Fewer calories and less fat with no noticeable effect on taste.  Highly recommend.
