Black Bottom Cake

I remember having this cake when I was a kid and have been thinking about it for a few months, but didn't get around to making it until about 3 weeks ago. It was as good as I remembered, nice and gooey.
The lack of eggs in the cake batter is not a mistake, I did a double take when I was reading through the ingredients, then cross referenced the recipe on-line and found that it really is supposed to be that way. It still turns out nice and moist and not at all crumbly.

3 c. flour
2 c. sugar
1/2 c. baking cocoa
2 tsp. baking soda
2 c. water
2/3 c. oil
2 Tbsp. vinegar
2 Tbsp. vanilla
1 tsp. salt

8 oz. cream cheese sofetened
1 egg
1/2 c. sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
6b oz. chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a 9X13-inch baking pan.
2. Mix all the cake ingredients and pour into pan.
3. Beat all the topping ingredients with a hand mixer; drop by spoonfuls over the cake batter.
4. Bake for 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
