This is a nice easy cake that requires very little time. When you are pressed for time, it is always good to have a few standby recipes like this. It also makes a nice dessert for company.
And you can't go wrong with chocolate.
CHOCOLATE SURPRISE CAKE
12-oz cream cheese-softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 pkg. chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips (I used regular chocolate chips)
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 12 cup Bundt pan. In a small mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add the egg and vanilla. Beat until blended and set aside. Prepare the cake as label directs. Fold in the chocolate chips. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Evenly cover with the cream cheese mixture. Bake until a pick inserted in the center comes out clean, 45-55 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 25 minutes. Remove from the pan and cool completely. Dust with confectioner's sugar.
This is very nice served with whipped cream and raspberries.
