    Baby Kato's Note:

    This wonderful cake tastes like a chocolate brownie mixed with vanilla cheesecake. The blending of the rich fragrant vanilla and the mellow German chocolate is perfect and creates a creamy treat that melts in your mouth. This cake is well worth the extra effort.

      Made this today for my husband's birthday. It was my first time making a cake from scratch and it took me a while to put it together, but it was definitely worth it. Like a previous reviewer I also only had an 8x8 pan, so the brownie-cake was really tall and would prob have been better in 10x10, but the cheesecake and chocolate combo is still delicious. Also baked for about 1 hr 15 min. Thanks so much for posting this recipe, it is just like a cake my grandma used to make and I love it!

      This is a nice cake that certainly does take a little longer to prepare. Perhaps I did something wrong, but the only complaint that we had with it was that the "brownie" part of the cake seemed rather dry. So long as the "cheesecake" part was in the portion you were eating it was wonderfully moist but otherwise a tad bit dry. I cooked it for about 38 minutes in my oven. Thanks for posting!

      Baby Kato, these brownie like gems were oh, so good! They were moist and I loved the pretty marbled effect that it had! I made these in a square 8X8 pyrex dish, (baking time was longer, about 15 min. more, due to the pan size) and they came out taller than probably was supposed to, but what the heck, more to eat with a tall glass of milk! The ribbon of cheesecake filling ran throughout the brownie which was so moist! Loved the flavors! Made this for photo tag. Thank you Baby Kato for a great recipe! (It made a great night time snack for my husband last night!
