Chocolate Raspberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

I'm always looking for interesting cake recipes - batters I can pour into one pan and just stick in the oven. As much as I love cookies, I don't love the constant in and out of cookie sheets in my tiny oven. This cake caught my eye. A chocolate bundt cake with a raspberry cream cheese filling. Sounds perfect.
First thing I did was to make up the cream cheese filling. Cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and chocolate chips - I had to resist from eating it all right there.
Next came the chocolate cake mix, which was thick and heavy and also passed the finger-lickin good test. I poured half the batter into the bundt pan, and then spooned the cream cheese filling on top, being careful not to let it touch the sides of the pan. I didn't end up using all the filling, since it looked like alot already. Then came the raspberries. Those also lost a few to sampling!On top of that went the remaining batter. This was one heavy cake. It was a workout just getting it into the oven, but I managed. And when it came out....it was worth it. The cake was thick and dense - almost more like a brownie than a cake - and the filling was delicious. However I did regret not using all the filling, I would have enjoyed more of it. I certainly liked what there was of it.
Tip of the Day: Fresh fruit usually works the best in baked goods, but frozen and thawed works when your berry of choice is out of season.

Recipe: (from RecipeZaar)

Cake:
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted
2 eggs

1/4 tsp salt

Filling:
12 ounces cream cheese

Cake:
Beat eggs and sugar together until pale yellow.
Beat in melted butter, vanilla, milk and water.

Pour half the cake batter into a greased bundt or tube pan.
Drop spoonfuls of filling over cake batter, not touching the sides. Sprinkle with raspberries.
