This cake is very rich, but very very good. My neighbor gave me one baked one year for Christmas and ever since then I make them and give them to friends and family also. Everyone loves them.

Ingredients

3 c
flour
2 c
sugar
6 Tbsp
cocoa powder
2 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
salt
2/3 c
salad oil
2 Tbsp
vinegar
2 Tbsp
vanilla
2 c
water
FILLING
8 oz
cream cheese (softened)
1 c
powdered sugar
1 tsp
vanilla
1 c
cool whip
FROSTING
1/3 c
margarine
1 c
sugar
1 tsp
vanilla
1/3 c
milk
1 c
chocolate chips

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl start mixing cake ingredients in order, when all is added make sure it is mixed well. This cake works best in a flan pan since it does have a filling. Pour cake batter into 2 flan pans that are greased and floured. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely.
2
Mix the four filling ingredients until smooth and creamy. Put in center of cake that is completely cooled. Don't put filling in if cake is the slightest bit warm, because it will melt the cream cheese and cool whip and the cake will not work
3
Next after filling is added refrigerate until the frosting is complete. Start frosting by bring margerine, sugar, vanilla, and milk to a boil, then add 1 cup of chocolate chips, stir until melted and pour on top of the cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate until topping is cool. Sit back slice your cake and enjoy. Guarnateed you will be making this cake again and again.

No there is no eggs in this cake. I don't know if you know what a flan cake pan is but it makes the cake have an indentation so you can put a filling into it. So they are one layer, not sure if you could layer it, I wouldn't think that it would work nor do I think you would want to once you see how the cake looks. Thanks for asking!

Just a ? No eggs right? And you mention putting batter into two pans, but what to do with both cakes? Are they stacked? Or two seperate cakes? Thanks

It makes a great holiday cake, when you make it you get two of them for one and then because it is so rich most can't eat a second piece.
