Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAKE THIS RECIPE - you won't be disappointed! MAKE THIS RECIPE - you won't be disappointed! This recipe was awesome - not too sweet and everyone asked for seconds - there was nothing left. It was a perfect blend of cheesecake and chocolate. At first I didn't think that the cheesecake part was sweet enough and thought about adding more sugar, but don't let it fool you - the layers mix and make a superbly satisfying combination. I think that I'll try a lemon cake mix next time and experiment with a white chocolate glaze. I've even considered using a chocolate cake mix and discussed it with my husband. He said he didn't care what I did he just wanted to know when I would be making it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was one of the best cheesecakes I've ever eaten. This was one of the best cheesecakes I've ever eaten. Even some of my family who do not like cheesecake, thought this was great. I made it twice within a 2 wk period. I am not a baker at all and was able to make this delicious dessert. The only problem I ran into, was the receipe calls for a 1 layer cake mix and I didn't notice that and used a 2 layer cake mix. Turned out not to be a problem, I just let the cake cool, then opened the springform pan and used dental floss to cut the cake in 1/2. Put the springform pan back on the cake and it worked beatifully. I can't wait to make this again. Hum, Father's Day is around the corner. I'm sure my husband would love to have some of this cheesecake.

They don't make a 1 layer size cake mix so what I did was use a regular yellow cake mix and used about 1 1/2 cups of the batter for the bottom of the cheesecake. It does cook in 20 minutes with that amount. Also, to change it up a bit, I used red velvet cake mix (only 1 1/2 cups of the batter) and followed the recipe as directed except omitted the chocolate topping and used cream cheese frosting stirred with 1/4 hot water for the top. It was a HIT!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this recipe! Love this recipe! I altered it a little...I used the Jif yellow cake recipe, but I make the bottom layer chocolate then make the cheesecake layer and cover with chocolate frosting and place another yellow layer of top and cover entire cake with frosting. It makes a tall excellent looking cake, I also place strawberries around the outside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made my cake from scratch. Made my cake from scratch. :) Was careful not to overcook the cheesecake. Did half sweet and half unsweet for the top chocolate. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

I only rated this as good b/c the cake layer leaked through the springform pan that I had. I don't know if my springform is just not good but I am definitely going to try this again. I was thinking of putting a chocolate crust on the bottom to avoid the leaking. The layers that I did make tasted great though. Let me know if anyone has any other suggestions on why the cake layer would have leaked through the pan!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I made this last night and was disappointed after all the rave reviews. I made this last night and was disappointed after all the rave reviews. I easily found a one layer cake by Jiffy. But the cheesecake layer was way too bitter. If I make it again I'd leave out the sour cream and possibly add more sugar to the cream cheese. The chocolate layer wasn't as sweet as I would have liked either. I would mix vanilla pudding and cool whip to offer on top of the chocolate layer next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an excellent recipe. This is an excellent recipe. I added an extra egg yolk to mine! For anybody who is English ... please do not use a sponge cake recipe, it will be too dry. Try looking up a recipe for a Busy Day Cake. It works perfectly! It is as easy as making a sponge cake .. easier even! I made it for my daughters birthday and it is awesome!! The kids don't like anything too sweet and this was just right!! Thank you!
