Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake

June 1, 2008

One of the recipes i bookmarked sometime back, shared by Happy Home Baker. 🙂 Chocolate and cheese! the thought of it makes me drool! *wipe of saliva* Made these into muffin size, so that i can easily share them (^.^v) One of the easiest cheesecake recipes i tried so far, other than those non-bake cheesecakes.

Love the fact that each of these are unique, it is rather impossible to have exactly 2 with the same swirl style 😛 which makes these pretty exciting and enjoyable to look at. The urge to slice them just to check out the swirls inside is sooooooooo strong! *smack forehead*

Ingredients:
Cream Cheese Mixture
250g cream cheese (soften at room temperature)
60g castor sugar
1 egg

Chocolate Mixture
180g butter
150g caster sugar
3 eggs
3 tablespoon cocoa powder
120g self-raising flour
1 tablespoon baking powder

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven at 150°C.
  2. Grease and line a 20cm round cake pan.
  3. Cream Cheese Mixture – beat cream cheese with sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the egg gradually and beat until well incorporated. Set mixture aside.
  4. Chocolate Mixture – Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time until well incorporated into mixture. Sieve all the dried ingredients together. Fold into the egg mixture.
  5. Pour half of the chocolate mixture into the cake pan.
  6. Pour all the cream cheese mixture and then the remaining chocolate mixture. Gently spread the chocolate mixture to cover all the cream cheese mixture. Using a skewer or toothpick, make a few swirls.
  7. Bake for 45-50 min or until skewer comes out clean. Cool completely and chill in the fridge before serving.

Verdict?

I personally felt that these are pretty easy to whip up! and the swirls are fun to make~ *wink* Worth to make again! With the chocolate batter, the taste of the cheese ain’t that overpowering. Mum who doesn’t really cheesecake, help herself to 2 of these! 😛 Thanks Happy Home Baker for sharing this recipe! *curtsy*
