This rich chocolate cake sports a bit of a tang thanks to cream cheese, the addition of which also helps keep the dessert moist. While the recipe calls for dark chocolate, you have the flexibility to choose your favorite kind. Bake it in a springform or bundt cake pan — either will work. Then, garnish it however you like, be it a shower of powdered sugar, with ice cream or alongside berries.

  2. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler on low heat.

This cake is rich and moist! I used regular cream cheese rather than “light.” I served it warm and drizzled chocolate syrup over each slice and garnished with a few raspberries and a sprig of mint
