Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Short on time? Use 1 cup Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy cream cheese frosting instead of the scratch-made frosting. Spread 1/2 cup frosting on top of each loaf.
  • tip 2
    To quickly soften cream cheese, remove from wrapper, and place on microwavable plate; microwave uncovered on High about 15 seconds or just until softened.
