I bake healthy snacks for my kids through the week, but occasionally I do like to treat them to something ooey, gooey and utterly yummy as a Friday after school treat.

I found this Chocolate Cake with Cream Cheese Icing in the thermomix recipe community. I’ve never tried Chocolate Cream Cheese icing before and must say, this was so good I will definitely be making it again.

Here is a very similar regular version for you from Good Chef, Bad Chef.

{The Organsied Housewife} Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing

I found the recipe on the community page hard to understand, I read their instructions to add all ingredients, not reading further enough for EXCEPT boiling water, so I have re-typed it out here, plus I also don’t cook it for as long as it recommended.  recipe credit to pkwilly.
