Cream Cheese Topped Chocolate Cake

The story goes that my 2nd sister came home for the weekend and she wanted me to bake cheesecake, whereas I was having a carving for a moist chocolate cake. I was in no mood to bake two cakes since I was tired ( just came back from Cherating the day before) so I came up with this cake to satisfied both. Very yummy.. its like a marbled brownies but ,,i prefer the chocolate cake since its more moist, and it was gone in no time. In the middle of cooking I found out that I have run out of eggs ( usually I kept spare for times like this), fortunately my mother earlier had been collecting "telur ayam kampung" from the chicken coop, so intead of two eggs i add another since the ayam kampung eggs is smaller but the yolk is more yelowish in colour, maybe I should have called this coklat cake vesion telur ayam kampung then?
