Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups cold water
  • 3/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons beaten egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
  • Confectioners' sugar, optional

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, combine water, oil, egg, vinegar and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  2. For filling, beat cream cheese, sugar and salt until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Fold in chips.
