I, as a Detroit kid, love Bumpy Cake. I also love cheesecake. What would happen if they had a baby. Now, those who know me would think I would be using the Susie Q cheesecake. Nope. It wouldn’t work, but it still has a place – just not here. You need a cheesecake and a sturdy one. Hey, it has to stand up to the filling and the fudge topping. I hope you like it.

Add second stick of butter in eight pieces and stir in.
Add powdered sugar to the mixture and stir vigorously for 4-5 minutes.

Refrigerate 2 hours and serve.
