My brother & sister-in-law requested something chocolate to eat for dessert for our Mothers Day get together. I linked them a picture of a chocolate cheesecake during the week and since that method took too long, I just looked for a different recipe that was similar and so I decided on this.
- Melted butter (to grease) (I microwaved a thin sliced piece for 30secs. in a little tub)
- 150g butter
- 300g good quality dark chocolate
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup caster sugar
- 1.5 cups plain flour
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 1x 250g cream cheese (easier to whisk at room temperature)
- Preheat oven to 180°C. Brush a cake pan with the melted butter to lightly grease. Line the base with non-stick baking paper, allowing it to hang over the sides.
- Combine the butter and chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring until well combined mixture is smooth. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool down. Transfer chocolate mixture in a large bowl.
- Whisk 2 eggs in a small bowl. Add 2/3 cups caster sugar and whisked eggs in chocolate mixture, and stir to combine. Add flour and sour cream, stir and combine until well combined.
- Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and remaining (1/3 cup) sugar in a bowl until smooth. Add remaining egg and beat until just combined.
- Spoon the chocolate mixture in the pan, then adding the cream cheese on top. Use a skewer to create the marble/swirl effect and to mix it together.
- Bake for 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Set aside for 1 hour (I only did 30 minutes). * Best served with Ice cream.
