This sounds like a cake recipe I posted awhile back.My recipe was made in a crock pot but is really rich and chocolaty.Find it and try it.Let me hear how you like it.
user Carole F BakersQueen - Nov 9, 2010, no, heart attack. I won't allow it!

The thing is when making this cake you can't mess up. Read where it says to 'carefully' spoon the chocolate cream cheese mixture on top of the cake batter. I didn't read that part well, and basically poured it onto the batter..THEN I read the word CAREFULLY..oops a little too late for that. I thought...I am not wasting these ingredients and all that work to dump the batter, so I baked it as it directed..and it came out fine, the mousse rose to the top part of the cake like it was supposed too. I was happy about that, obviously. Just a tip there..just in case you get carried away with pouring it, rather than spooning gently. :)

And, little pieces of this...and NO heart attacks, Please!!

Annie..what is it called, your recipe? This one ends up with cake at the bottom and a rich creamy mousse on the top part of the cake once it is done baking. I would love to look at your recipe though. I will try and find it.
