I'd go for a chocolate molten lava cake covered with chocolate ganache and drizzled with raspberry sauce.

I'm not s big cake fan, but I would probably make a very dense dark chocolate cake with dark chocolate ganache for my birthday.

Would it make me boring if I said Key Lime Pie with sour cream? I'm not much of a dessert person and one of the few desserts I can inhale to the point of miserable gluttony is key lime pie. I hate whipped cream on desserts but sour cream with a little powdered sugar on key lime pie is the dankness.

If not that then give me a chocolate cheesecake with oreo crust and don't put anything mint or fruit flavored anywhere near it!

I know neither of those are cakes, I just don't dig cake all that much.

Borden's Condensed Sweetened Milk has a recipe for chocolate chip cheesecake with an Oreo crust that is to die for. I make it every year for my grandson's birthday and Christmas present. It is very rich and he refuses to share it with anyone. Not even his fiance'. So I end up making one for my daughter and her husband. No mint or fruit flavor at all.

Eagle Brand® Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

So easy to make and worth the effort. I give it

Can you post the recipe, Mel? Sounds yummy!
I am not much of a receipe follower, but basically I made it as follows.

To make the base, I rubbed butter and flour and a pinch of salt together until it became bread crumb textured. I then sprinkled this on the bottom of the cake tin and baked until light golden.

Then, on top of that I poured some coffee brandy liquer that I made last year. Then I sprinkled on fresh rasberries. I sprinkled raw cane sugar on top of this.

I then made the cheese mix from cream cheese, flour, and eggs, which I put on top of the above base. On top of that, I sprinkled some more raw cane sugar. Then I baked this until the cream cheese mix started to turn golden.

I served the cake with whipped cream.
