Baked Chocolate Cheesecake
It feels like I have been away for so long. But last week my body decided to give up on me and I was bedridden for a week. I couldn’t help crying and wondering how many precious hours I have wasted being sick. All I could think of was getting back to the blog and make a decadent cheesecake. I am well rested and better now. Though some one get my coughing stopped – It’s been annoying me forever now! I guess I spend so much time working, over thinking, over planning, and executing, that my body silently has been enduring it all. So this was it’s way to get my attention and tell me I needed rest. And trust me, I slept and slept for days together as if I had been overdosed with sleeping pills.
Enough of my rants! Let’s get back to the Cheesecake I wanted to make – I had one on my mind for a long time now. My husband vouches for my cheesecakes I make. He loves it! 🙂 But this time I wanted to try a recipe different from the one I usually make. Does it happen to you – you bookmark all these recipes but rarely ever get to make them? Right! I do too. Well, Lina @Lin’s Recipe came up with a brilliant idea of Recipe exchange where we recreate recipes given by fellow bloggers. While I decided to settle with Baked Chocolate Cheesecake from Anita’s Cuisine, my Gluten Free Brownies was beautifully attempted by Natascha’s Kitchen. Lina thanks again. Do check their links as well.
Anita, your recipe turned out so good. It was rich, creamy silky smooth and ohhh so sinful. It was perfect. And yes it was loved by Mr. Hubby as well. In short, it tasted to die for. 🙂 Thanks for the recipe again Anita.
For the Crust:
1 cup + 2 tblsp or 150 g graham crackers / digestive biscuits, crushed
2 tblsp or 15g powdered sugar
2 tblsp or 15g cocoa powder

100 g heavy cream
For the Crust:
- Crush graham crackers or digestive biscuits in a food processor
- Add the cocoa powder and powdered sugar and mix well.
- Then pour in the melted butter and give it a quick pulse to mix well. The mixture should
- Transfer the mixture into a round cake pan (22 cm) and press it down using your palms or the base of a cup.
- Set aside while you prepare the filling.
For the Filling:
- For the filling, mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.
- Pour the filling over the crust and bake the cheesecake at 170 C for 40-50 minutes.
- When done, the center of the cheesecake looks set if you shake the pan slightly.
- Remove from the oven and let it cool down completely.
For the Glaze:
- Bring the heavy cream to a boil.
- Remove from heat and stir in the chopped chocolate.
- Mix well until melted and smooth.
- Pour the glaze over the cheesecake and refrigerate at least an hour or overnight before serving.

Trupti, I am so sorry to hear you have not been well. I hope that cough disappears soon.
This looks so beautiful, and so appetizing. I have never baked a cheesecake before, and I am keen to try. I definitely am going to use your recipe, thanks so much for sharing 🙂 and have a lovely weekend.
Wow looks amazing Trupti. …
Wow it looks fluffy, rich and tasty. I think for me and my sister, best part is coffee. Coffee makes almost every recipe tasty for us, we both just love coffee drinking and eating:D. We usually make Coffee Brownies, Coffee Banana Bread, Espresso Baked Oatmeal, Chocolate and Coffee Granola etc, if your coffee chocolate cheesecake work, will add this in our menu. Thanks for sharing. Between we also run a coffee blog, you can view our recently published article here.

I’m glad you are on the mend Trupti! Being sick is never fun! The cheesecake looks amazing :). Lina comes up with the best ideas 🙂
Thank you so much Antonia 🙂 I feel better now – and right Lina is superb
Thank you so much 🙂
I’m glad that you’ve somewhat recovered Trupti! I know what it’s like to have the symptoms hang around–I’m usually not sick-sick for too long, but then I’m coughing and congested sometimes for weeks after! This decadent and delicious cheesecake sounds like the perfect thing to return to after a blogging sick leave! What a great challenge for Lina to have put on–I have so many bookmarks of things I want to make from other blogs, but between my own blogging, I never seem to get around to them either!
