Cafe Au Lait Cheesecake Recipe:
- 2 cups chocolate cookie crumbs
- 1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
- 2 oz. semisweet chocolate, chopped
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 tablespoons instant espresso coffee powder or instant coffee crystals
- 2 tablespoons coffee liqueur or water
- 3 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 4 eggs
Using a small saucepan, combine the chocolate, water, and espresso powder. Place over low heat and stir until the chocolate begins to melt. Remove from heat. Continue stirring and add the liqueur. Cool.
Combine the cream cheese, sugar, flour, and vanilla in a large bowl. Mix with an electric mixer (or by hand, as I do) until smooth.
Add the eggs, one at a time. Beat on low speed just until combined.
Set aside 2 cups of the mixture, cover and chill.
Stir the chocolate mixture into the remaining cream cheese, and when blended pour into the crust lined pan.
Bake about 30 minutes or until edge is set (cheesecake will not be done).
Now, remember the cream cheese mixture you set aside in the fridge? Go get it and pour it around the edge of the cheesecake (where the cake has "set"). Now, gently spread the cream cheese over the entire surface of the cake.
Bake for another 15 to 20 minutes or until the center of the cake appears nearly set when gently shaken.
Remove from the oven and cool on a baking rack for 10 minutes. Loosen the crust from the side of the pan by running a knife around the edge of the cake.
Cool for 30 more minutes. Remove the outer part of the pan and cool cheesecake some more.
Cover and chill for 4 to 24 hours.
For garnish, drizzle with additional melted chocolate if desired.
This cheese cake serves 12 people.
Some Important Tips for Baking Our Free Cheesecake Recipes:1) all your ingredients should be at room temperature!
2) combine everything on low or medium speed (do not over mix)!
3) running the tip of a sharp knife around the top edge right after baking, plus cooling to room temperature before refrigerating will keep the cake from cracking.
4) If you follow these tips I guarantee that they'll work!
