Unique Chocolate Cheese Cake

Crust:

You can either use a ready bake graham pie crust, a frozen pie shell, or make your own. To make your own, proceed as follows:

Ingredients:

  • 1 3/4 cups of graham crumbs
  • 3 tbsp of butter

Procedure:

Line a pie form pan with parchment paper on the sides and bottom. Melt the butter and mix it together with the graham crumb. Press it into the pie form pan and bake it at 350 F/ 180 C for 10 min. This will crisp and solidify the crust.

Cheesecake Mix Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of cream cheese ( 250 g/ 8 oz)
  • 3/4 cup of soft unripened goat cheese ( 140 g/ 5 oz)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg white, beaten until stiff
  • 1/2  a cup of cream
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 tbsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 bar of dark chocolate ( 100 g/ 3.5 oz)
  • 1 tsp of instant coffee

Icing Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of icing sugar
  • 1/2  a cup of melted brown chocolate ( about 50 g/ 2¼ oz)

Procedure:

  • Preheat oven to 350 F/ 180 C.
  • It helps to leave the cheese out at room temperature for a couple of hours before you start. In a bowl mix the two cheeses and the cream until it becomes a smooth mass.
  • Add sugar and eggs.
  • Add vanilla extract
  • Carefully melt the dark chocolate. Place the bowl with the chocolate in hot water to avoid burning the chocolate. Once melted, add the instant coffee.
  • Slowly add the chocolate/ coffee mix to the cheese mass.
  • Whisk the egg white until stiff. Carefully add it to the cheese mix using a rubber spatula.
  • Pour the cheese mix into the graham crust and bake for 60 minutes.
  • Melt the brown chocolate and mix it with the icing sugar.
  • Once the cake comes out of the oven, let it cool for 15 minutes.
  • Apply the icing/ chocolate mix with a brush. Let it cool before serving.
  • Garnish with fresh strawberries.
