Simply Special Chocolate Cake

Who doesn't LOVE chocolate cake? And cheesecake too?! Surprise Cake has a bit of both! So easy to's how: Stir up a chocolate cake from any mix, following the package directions.

In a separate bowl, cream together: 8 oz. cream cheese, softened (I used low fat,) 1/2 cup sugar, and 1 egg.

Fill greased cake pans with 2/3 of the cake batter (I used 2 round ones to make 2 one layer cakes...a nice way to have one cake for home, and one to share with a friend). Spoon the cream cheese mixture over the batter in a random way, for a pretty pattern. Then spoon the remainder of the cake batter over the cheese filling. Bake at 350 til the top springs back when poked and a toothpick inserted near the middle comes out clean.

After a bit of cooling and removing from cake pan onto a pretty plate, serve slightly warm with a shake of powdered sugar over the cake and plate. Also great with a dollop of whipped cream. Must refrigerate remaining cake.

This cake was so easy, makes a pretty presentation, and is so so good. Very moist and not sickeningly sweet. Simply delicious! Enjoy.

  1. This must be the post I was looking for! I knew that you'd posted something on my wall that I didn't get a chance to look at right away and then I could never find it again! Argh. I plan to try this cake b/c it looks incredibly delish! And as weird as this sounds, I would not have thought about keeping one cake for us and one to give away. Making 2 round (or even square) cakes will be much better for my waistline once the boys are gone as I could give one away or even freeze one. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!


Thank you for taking the time to stop by and leave an encouraging comment or question. I read each one!
