Preheat the oven to 160 ºC. Grease 8 ramekins or 8 cm round metal tart tins with butter or nonstick spray. Transfer to a baking sheet.

1 Divide the chocolate cake batter among the ramekins or tart tins – each should be half filled.

2 In a mixing bowl, whisk the cream cheese or cottage cheese until smooth. Add the mashed avo, castor sugar, vanilla essence and egg and beat until well combined.

3 Put a few spoonfuls of the cheese mixture into each ramekin or tart tin. Use a knife to marble the cheese mixture through the cake batter.

4 Bake for 25-30 minutes or until just set. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the ramekins or tins for 10 minutes. Lightly loosen the sides and turn out the cakes onto a wire rack. Leave to cool completely.
