Here’s a Chocolate Cheesecake Cake that is perfect for special occasions. It’s two layers of chocolate cake with a layer of chocolate cheesecake in the middle. The whole cake is covered in rich chocolate frosting and sprinkled with chocolate shavings.
You know how some people really don’t get along well with their In-Laws? How visits with them are stressful and awkward and generally awful for many people? Yeah, not me. I got kinda lucky on that whole “in-law” thing. And I’m not just writing this to kiss-up to my in-laws because I know there’s a good chance they’re reading this. I actually truly enjoy being around my in-laws. And I’m pretty sure they like me too. No weird, stressful stuff when we’re all together. They’re just good people. And for that reason, I bring them cakes like this Chocolate Cheesecake Cake.
I usually bake my cheesecakes in a “water bath.” If you’ve ever wondered what that means, here you go. Set the foil-wrapped cheesecake pan into a larger (roasting) pan- or anything that your cheesecake pan can fit inside of- and then pour boiling hot water into the pan so that surrounds the cheesecake pan and comes up the side of the pan about 1-inch. Then bake it in its water bath.
See, not as complicated as you thought, right? The reason behind it is that you will most always get a cheesecake that doesn’t crack on the top. Bake it without a bath, and you risk cracking. But some people are wary of using this method because of the possibility of water leakage through tears in the foil.
If you don’t like to use a water bath, then you can choose this alternate method. Simply place a pan of water on a lower rack, and bake the cheesecake on a rack above the pan. Having the water in the oven will still create enough moisture to help keep the cheesecake moist. And honestly, if it cracks then it won’t be that big of a deal since you’re going to put it in between two layers of cake!
