NOTE:  Recipe did not indicate size of baking pan.  I've made this cake in both loaf pans and in a bundt pan.  No reason why it wouldn't work in a round or square cake pan.


Mixture ‘A’
250 g cream cheese, softened (1/2 pound/8 oz)
60 g castor sugar (1/3 cup)
1 egg
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 Beat cream cheese with sugar until light and fluffy
2 Beat in egg until well incorporated and set it aside

Mixture ‘B’
180 g butter, softened (3/4 cup)
150 g sugar (2/3 cup)
3 eggs
3 tablespoons cocoa
120 g self-raising flour (1 cup)
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla

1 Sieve flour, baking powder and cocoa together and put aside
2 Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy
3 Add egg, one at a time and beat until well incorporated into mixture
4 Fold flour mixture into egg mixture.
5 To assemble, pour half of mixture ‘B’, then all of mixture ‘A’, then followed by the remaining mixture ‘B’.
6 Bake in preheat oven at 180C (350°F) for 45-50 min or until skewer comes out clean.
