I was up early this morning and had time to bake something before going to work. Decided to bake a Chocolate Cream Cheese Cake. I made this once before about three years ago. The recipe neglects to say what size pan to use. I used a large loaf pan last time. This time I made two small loaves. I think the next time I will make it in a small bundt pan. The recipe comes from Zu's Kitchen.
I adjusted the recipe slightly by adding vanilla extract to both the cream cheese filling and the cake batter.
