I was happily typing the title of this post, without realising that I had written a post with the same title "Chocolate Swirls Cheesecake" before. Scatter-brain. Referring back, the ingredients are quite identical except for the portion of each of them. And of course, I have forgotten that I had written in my earlier post that the (250gm) butter is excessive and I would like to cut it down. Anyway, this is another tasty chocolate swirls cheesecake shared by Bakericious, and again this taste like brownie to me. I guess I'm "infatuated" with swirls, chocolate + cheese (*_*)
250g cream cheese, softened (reduced from 300g)
40g castor sugar (reduced from 50g)
lemon zest from 1 lemon (not added in original recipe)
1. Beat cream cheese with sugar until light and fluffy.
2. Add in lemon zest and give a few strokes to just incorporate into cream cheese mixture.
3. Beat in egg until well-mixed and set aside.
250g butter, softened
145g castor sugar (reduced from 165g)
4 tbsp cocoa powder
160g self-raising flour
1 1/4tsp baking powder
1 1/4tbsp chocolate milk (replaced with full cream milk)
1. Sieve cocoa powder, self-raising flour and baking powder and set aside.
2. Beat butter and sugar till light and fluffy. Batter should look pale in colour.
3. Add egg one at a time and beat until well incorporated into the butter mixture.
4. Alternate flour and milk into the egg mixture, and beat on low speed until well-mixed.
5. Pour half of chocolate batter into prepared cake tin, followed by cream cheese mixture, and lastly the remaining chocolate batter. (I did mine in 6x6' square tin, and there are enough batter for another 6 medium-sized cupcakes.)
6. Bake in pre-heated oven at 180 deg C for 45 to 50 mins or until skewer comes out clean. (I bake the cupcakes first at 180 deg C for 20 mins, i guess 18 mins should be good enough.)
You might notice that the colour of the
chocolate in these cupcakes are not "rich"
enough, that's because I had scooped the
mixed batter from my square tin after realising
my 6x6' tin can't "accomodate" all the batter.
