Yesterday I wanted something sweet. I've had a cold for the past few days and couldn't go to work on Wednesday, so I needed some cheering up. Nothing says "get better!" like Chocolate cake. With cheesecake filling. And streusel toping.
Okay, so I took the recipe for Black and White Pound Cake from Great Coffee Cakes, and instead of turning less than half the batter chocolate, I doubled the stuff you add to the vanilla batter and made most of it chocolate. Most, because I didn't have the stuff to triple it. I than took 8 ounces cream cheese, 1 egg, half cup sugar and beat it all together. I thought I needed something, so I added some of the leftover vanilla batter to it. Then, in a spring form pan I put 2/3 of the chocolate batter, all the cheesecake batter, then the remaining chocolate batter. When it only had 5 minutes left in the oven I put on Carole's chocolate streusel topping. It was a very good cake.
The batter was so good I could eat it like pudding!
Speaking of batter, I had enough leftover for a whole vanilla pound cake! It don't look so pretty, but it tastes good! I took it out 5 minutes later than I wanted do to my scatter brain.
And I wanted to say I've joined the foodie blogroll! You can join by following the link on the side of my blog.
