1 package yellow cake mix
2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1 cup pureed cantaloupe*
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/3 cup sugar
Dash of salt
Remove 1 cup of the yellow cake mix and set aside. Pour the remaining cake mix into a large mixing bowl. Add one egg and the canola oil. Mix until coarse crumbs form. Press onto the bottom and sides of a greased 13x9-inch baking pan.
In another bowl, beat the cream cheese with the sugar and dash of salt. Add the remaining three eggs and reserved cake mix. Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add the cantaloupe puree, vanilla and lemon juice. Beat until well combined. Pour into pan.
Bake at 300 degrees F for 40 to 50 minutes or until center is set. Remove and cool about one hour. Cover and place in the refrigerator until well chilled, at least two hours
