Easy to make, delicious cake.

"OMG! this cake is amazing. It is so moist and delish. I wasn't sure how the cream cheese layer would work, but it created a nice layer. I took it a step further once I took it out of the pan upside down. I added homemade chocolate frosting. We couldn't stop thinking about or eating the cake...."

My sister in law made this for a birthday party. Since then I have made it 2 times and each time everyone has raved about it. Absolutely loved it. Can't imagine why anyone would give it less than 5 stars.
