Dutch Oven Black Forest Ribbon Cake

2 packages cream cheese
2 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar
6 tablespoons milk
4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 boxes chocolate cake mix
2 cans chocolate frosting
1 can cherry pie filling

Combine cream cheese, 2 eggs and 1/4 cup sugar in a bowl and mix until smooth. Gradually add three tablespoons of milk, two tablespoons of butter and one tablespoon of cornstarch and vanilla, beating well.
In another bowl, mix chocolate cake mixes as directed on package, adding the required ingredients. Spread half of the chocolate batter in a 14-inch Dutch oven lined with quick-release foil. Spoon cream cheese mixture evenly over chocolate batter, then top with the remaining chocolate batter.
Bake about 45 minutes over fire on high hook, with top coals. A tooth-pick comes out clean when cake is done. Let cool, then spread frosting over cake and top with pie filling.
