      After reading the other reviews, I made some adjustments to make this a bit more gooey. I used applesauce instead of butter for the cake layer, which made it more moist when baked, but also sticky to spread in the pan, so be prepared for that. I sprinkled 1/2 c. chocolate chips onto the cake layer before adding the cream cheese layer, making this triple chocolate, yum! I used a 9x9" pan instead, making these thicker and definitely more like cake than bars. And the part about not cooking too long is so important - I only had to bake for 35 min., the center was gooey perfection! This is very rich, small servings go a long way. Thanks, J9!

      My family calls these gooey "bars" because they're definitely more of a bar or brownie than a cake. I made these with Pillsbury Devils Food cake mix, which I would not recommend. They turned out dry and crumbly. These are like rich brownies with a chocolate cream cheese frosting that bakes right on top. The kids really like them. The bottom layer should be the consistency of playdough when you press it in the pan. If it's crumbly, add more moisture. If not, the brownie layer will be dry. I love that these can be made in so many variations. My usual is yellow cake mix with a layer of mini chocolate chips or toffee bits and the top layer minus the cocoa. For Thanksgiving, try it with pumpkin!

      This stuff is INCREDIBLE! It does have more of a brownie texture than cake, but it's so delicious that it really doesn't matter!
