Directions

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease and flour 9 x 13-inch (3.5 L) baking pan.
  • 2. Cream Cheese Filling: Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) for 30 seconds; stir. If necessary, microwave an additional 10 seconds at a time, stirring after each interval, until chips are melted and smooth.
  • 3. Beat cream cheese with sugar until well combined. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Add melted chocolate; beat until blended; reserve.
  • 4. Cake: Stir flour with sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Add water, oil, eggs, vinegar and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer, on medium speed, for 2 minutes or until well combined. Pour 3 cups (750 mL) batter into the prepared pan.
  • 5. Carefully drop dollops of cream cheese filling over batter. Carefully spoon remaining batter over filling. Toss chocolate chips with coconut flakes and nuts; sprinkle over batter.
  • 6. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until wooden pick inserted into cake comes out almost clean and cake starts to crack slightly. Place on wire rack and cool completely. Store leftover cake, covered, in the refrigerator.
