My Death by Chocolate Cheese Cake

My Death by Chocolate Cheesecake......
I have installed iFood in my phone and came across the recipe and video in iFood. iFood became 1 more application in my phone that I can use during my 'waiting time' and also when accompanying hubby to his badminton game.. Previously only Facebook, but now I have iFood and also foodgawker....yeyy!!!

Back to this recipe, I baked for 2 birthday occasions and Alhamdulillah, they were deliciously great! This is definitely a keeper for cheese and chocolate lover......

100g butter, melted
250g crushed oreo cookies (with chocolate cream)

500g Cream cheese, room temperature
2 tbsp plain flour
1 cup caster sugar
3 eggs separated
100ml sour cream
1 tbsp grated lemon rind
3 tbsp lemon juice

Need to improve the side base...
too thick and not even....
4 oz white chocolate, melted
4 oz bitter-sweet chocolate, melted
4 oz dark chocolate, cut into chunks
12 oreo cookies cut into chunks

8 oz dark chocolate, chopped
1 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoon light corn syrup

  1. Grind oreo cookies with melted butter thoroughly and press into 9 inches springform tin and set aside.
  2. Beat egg whites until hard peak form divide into 2.
  3. Beat cream cheese with flour, caster sugar, egg yolks, lemon rind and juice, and sour cream until light and fluffy.
  4. Divide into 2. Whisk in melted white chocolate into one and melted bitter-sweet chocolate into another half.
  5. Stir in chocolate chunks into the white chocolate mixture and oreo chunks into the bitter-sweet chocolate mixture.
  6. Mix well with egg whites and pour the cheese mixture into 3 parts alternately with the white and bitter-sweet.
  7. Bake for 40 minutes and then check, it should be set but slightly wobbly in the center. Leave in the tin to cool.
  8. Refrigerate over night.
  9. Heat the whipping cream, remove and add chopped chocolate and corn syrup.
