My SO and i had lunch in a restaurant in Vancouver, BC and we had the most delectable, moist chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting. I tried for some time to duplicate the recipe and finally found this one from a blogger named Kaye. I have made it on several occasions and most everyone ends up having 2 pieces!!

How to Make Rich Chocolate Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting


  • 1Makes two 9 inch round cakes

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 9 inch round cake pans (first rub with butter, then cover with flour, dumping out excess).
  • 2In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add in the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. Mix with a hand mixer for 3 minutes. Stir in the boiling coffee mixture by hand. The mixture will be VERY thin. Do not despair. Pour evenly into the two pans.
  • 3Bake for 30-35 minutes until toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes in pan. Then remove from pan to cool completely. Once the cake is cooled, frost, cut and enjoy!
  • 4Frosting

    Mix the cream cheese, vanilla, and powdered sugar together with a mixer until smooth for the icing.
    This should ice the entire cake.
