  • 2 8 oz packages softened cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 brownie mix 9x13 inch size
  • 1 chocolate cake mix
  • favorite chocolate frosting recipe prepared (tripled)


  • 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).
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    My family would go crazy for this cake. I’ll have to give it a try for our next get-together. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    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?
