Recipe for Chocolate Cream Cheese-Filled Cake


    Chocolate Cream Cheese-Filled Cake1 (18.25 ounce) box dark chocolate cake mix
    8 ounces cream cheese
    2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2 teaspoon almond extract
    1 cup heavy whipping cream

    Prepare and bake chocolate cake as directed on package. Bake in two 9-inch round pans. Allow cakes to cool. When cakes are cool, cut each one in half with a long serrated knife, making four layers.

    In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, brown sugar and vanilla and almond extracts. Beat until soft.

    In a separate bowl, whip cream to soft peaks, then fold into cream cheese mixture. Place the bottom layer of cake on the serving plate. Spread 1/4 of the filling on cake layer, then continue to stack up layers with 1/4 of the filling on each layer. Finish top with the final 1/4 of filling. Sides stay unfrosted.
