In last 10 year’s my husband and I have been together my Mother in law has spent 5 of her birthday’s with us! This birthday was no different. So when I asked her what she wanted I wasn’t really surprised when she picked a cheesecake. Chocolate this time. I had two recipes in my collection and I remember that one was better than the other, but couldn’t remember which one. So I went with the one that sounded better.
My husband doesn’t like cheesecake so I don’t get to make them very often, but I love them. So I was happy to do it. and SOOOO glad it turned out just PERFECT! Not one crack on top. I like to mix up my chocolates so that you don’t get a distinct brand flavor from your cheesecake. It worked great and tasted wonderful. Still not as DARK as I would like, but good. I’m still on the hunt for an AMAZING chocolate cheesecake though…
- 1 C chocolate wafers ground
- 4 Tbsp unsalted butter melted
- 3 Tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 C granulated sugar
- 8 oz chocolate
- 3- 8 oz full fat cream cheese
- ¾ C full fat sour cream
- 3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 3 Lrg eggs
- Mix the ingredients together well.
- Then press into a 9 inch spring form pan.
- Bake the crust at 350 for 10 mins.
- Let the crust cool before pouring in the filling.
- Preheat the oven to 300.
- Melt Chocolate in a double broiler (or the microwave, just don't let it over cook).
- Mix the cream cheese on medium for 3 mins.
- Add the sugar and mix on low until smooth.
- Add the sour cream, cocoa, melted chocolate and vanilla, and mix on low, scraping the sides.
- Add eggs one at a time, until just combined (30 seconds each).
- Bake 50 -60 mins,
- It should still be wobbly in the center.
- Turn off the oven and crack the door, letting it cool for an hour.
- Then put it in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight.
