Chocolate Cream-Cheese Cake

Most people have seen the movie “Forest Gump” and I believe they all remember the most famous quote:
“Life is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you gonna´get”.
Well, you do not have to worry when baking my different chocolate cake recipes-
I am always gonna´tell you what you´ll get- just read the how-to :-)
This cake was seen on a other blog and just had to be baked. It was so tasty, soft and full of flavour.
We ate it while still warmish and needless to say I will be baking this soon again.

Serves 6-8 | Time needed ~ 90 min

For the cake-base:
200 g unsalted butter, room temped
2,5 dl sugar
1 dl cocoa
3 eggs
3,5 dl wheat-flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sodium bicarbonate
1/2 tsp salt
1 dl plain yoghurt

For the filling:
225 g cream cheese, room temped
25 g butter
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 egg
seeds from one dried vanilla fruit
1 can (400g) of sweetened condensed milk

  1. For the cake- base: Grease a cake pan (that holds at least 2,3l) and powder it with cocoa or breadcrumbs.
  2. Mix the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until it almost gets a white colour. Add the cocoa, then the eggs, one at the time,
  3. Mix the flour, baking powder, sodium bicarbonate and salt in a separate bowl then add it to the butter mixture. Add the yoghurt and blend it in.
  4. Pour the mixture in the cake pan.
  5. For the filling: Stir the butter, cream cheese, vanilla seeds and cornstarch together, then add the egg and condensed milk. Blend well.
  6. Pour the filling on top on the cake-base.
  7. Bake on 175 C for 50 minutes. Enjoy the cake while still a little warm.
  8. Optional: The second day I made a chocolate glaze just by melting some dark chocolate with a tablespoon milk and a teaspoon of oil. This I poured over the cake and decorated with pecans.
