Sometimes just the name of a recipe can get the mouth watering when you say it out loud, and this is one of those recipes. Chocolate. Cake. With. Cream. Cheese. (you had us there) And... (there's an "and"?). What's more, you make it all from scratch. Don't worry, the jam is an easier version that can even be made the day before. As for the cake, it's rich with chocolate pieces and cocoa powder, for double the flavor, plus maple syrup, for depth.
