    I have made this a couple of times and it never disappoints. Quite easy to pull together and the cream cheese topping is a great compliment to the deeply fudgy cake. Mine always sinks a bit but it is not under baked. It is a bit like a cake and brownie cross since it has a bit of a chewy textue and a deep rich chocolate flavor.

    p. 286. I've made this several times, this time without the frosting, for simplicity's sake. It's wonderful.

    Very tasty and moist chocolate cake. Mine sunk in the middle but just added extra icing in the center.

    The most-requested cake in our house. Beautiful to look at and a batter for the truly lazy - everything is stirred in the saucepan. A moist cake that always sinks in the center, the better to fill with the extremely good, just-sweet-enough cream cheese frosting. A pleasure to look at and to eat.

    ...make it anytime you want a good, unusual chocolate cake. And whatever Guinness you don’t use in the cake, you can drink afterwards: how many chocolate cake recipes offer free beer?
