Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Lightly grease a 13 by 9-inch baking pan.
  • In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, 1 egg, and 1 stick melted butter, and stir until well blended.
  • Pat mixture into prepared pan and set aside.
  • In a stand mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth.
  • Add the remaining 2 eggs, and the cocoa powder.
  • Lower the speed of the mixer, and add the powdered sugar. Continue beating until ingredients are well mixed.
  • Slowly add the remaining 1 stick of melted butter, and the vanilla, continuing to beat the mixture until smooth.
  • Stir in nuts with a rubber spatula.
  • Spread filling over cake mixture in pan.
  • Bake for 40 to 50 minutes.
  • Be careful not to overcook the cake; the center should still be a little gooey when finished baking.
  • Let cake partially cool on a wire rack before cutting into pieces.
