I recently made my own version of Earthquake Cakes and I’m so happy how they turned out. It started with a Red Velvet Earthquake Cake then a Pumpkin Earthquake Cake and now this Chocolate Fudge Earthquake Cake. They are so simple to make and so delicious! The combination of sweetened cream cheese, butter, chocolate chips and coconut go together perfectly then it’s swirled into a rich chocolate fudge mix and baked into one beautiful cake!
Ingredients are as follows:
1 box Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix (plus the ingredients needed to prepare the cake)
1/2 C butter
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla
2 C powdered sugar
1 C semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 C coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees; grease a 9×13″ pan.
Melt the butter either in the microwave or on the stove.
Mix in the cream cheese, vanilla, and powdered sugar.
Fold in the chocolate chips and coconut; set aside.
Prepare cake mix according to the package directions.
Pour batter into prepared pan.
Spoon dollops of the cream cheese mixture onto the batter leaving a little edge.
Lightly swirl the batter around.
Bake in preheated oven for 40-45 minutes. Allow to cool before slicing.
Slice, serve and enjoy!
