Double Chocolate Cheesecake Layered Cake…

Good Sunday everyone! We are enjoying the weekend with my sister and her family visiting from AZ, we are having a great time.

Here is that crazy chocolate cake from Easter we enjoyed. It is tall, sweet and delicious. It takes a little preparation, but trust me it’s well worth it. Chocolate cake, brownie and cheesecake layers make for a winning combo. For your next family party, try this baby on em’, it’s sure to be a huge hit! Enjoy!



Double Chocolate Cheesecake Layered Cake

2 8 oz packages softened cream cheese
1/2 Cup sugar
2 eggs
1 brownie mix 9×13 inch size
1 chocolate cake mix
Favorite Chocolate Frosting Recipe, prepared (tripled)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place cream cheese and sugar into a stand or electric mixer bowl. Beat until softened. Beat in the eggs until smooth. Pour into a wax paper lined and greased 9 inch springformpan. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until middle is set and not jiggly. Remove and let cool completely. Refrigerate overnight or for 2-3 hours. Carefully remove sides and transfer to wax paper (I used a giant spatula to help, it’s ok if it breaks a little, just piece it together and freeze cheesecake for 30 minutes to firm).

2. Prepare brownie mix according to package directions and divide evenly into a wax paper lined and greased 9 inch cake pan. Bake for 25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean from center. Let cool completely then carefully turn over onto wax paper; set aside.

3. Prepare cake mix according to package directions and pour into 2 wax paper lined 9 inch cake pans. Bake for 25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean from center. Let cool completely then carefully turn over onto wax paper; set aside.

4. Place one of the chocolate cake layers onto a cake stand. Spread with a thin layer of chocolate frosting then layer with the brownie. Spread brownie with a thin layer of frosting then top with cheesecake layer. Spread with a thin layer of frosting then layer with remaining chocolate cake layer. Spread entire cake with remaining chocolate frosting. Chill until ready to serve.

    That is beautiful! Looks delicious AND pretty. I so rarely get that combination down! It is usually one or the other for me. The layers are so perfectly straight!

    Would you be willing to share your recipe for the chocolate frosting that you used?
    Also, in the directions it says to pour the brownie mix into 2 pans, do you only end up using one of them in the cake?

    OMGosh this looks delicious, and whether I ever make it or not, the world is a better place now that I have this recipe in my collection. I have two questions that other followers also asked, but I didn’t see answers posted. 1) For the brownie layer, the directions say to “divide” the prepared mix but only lists a single 9-inch cake pan. I can’t imagine the amount of mix for a 13×9 batch of brownies baked in a single 9-inch cake pan would cook in only 25 minutes. 2) What frosting recipe did you use? It looks like a thin layer of homemade marshamallow creme fudge.

    Heaven! I made this for a dinner party last night and everyone raved!!!! It was soooo good…I also made your BBQ chicken soup and it was a hit too!!! Thanks for all the great recipes!

    I made this cake over the weekend and used a peanut butter recipe I have and it was fantastic! Awesome Awesome Awesome! It didn’t transport well – half the cake slid off until it hit the side of my cake carrier. But it was still devine!
