Tasty or Nasty: CHOCOLATE FUDGE BROWNIE CHEESCAKE!
A video of me doing the Cheesecake: https://youtu.be/fKqXC6yOdWg
- The brownie base turned out to be very chewy and hard to bite into, this may have been because it was fully cooked before topping it with the cheesecake part of the equation. I’d recommend to slightly undercook the base so that it finishes cooking while the cheesecake cooks, this way it will end up as a fudgy brownie base, not a chewy chocolate base.
- The cheesecake part lacked a bit of depth of flavour; although it tasted good, there was a tart element missing from it (which is characteristic of any good cheesecake). Next time, I’d add some lemon zest to the mix, and I would also replace a small part of the cream cheese with sour cream.
- I also noted that the recipe didn’t call for salt. Do add a tiny pinch of salt to the cream cheese mixture to enhance the flavours. And if the chocolate base and topping isn’t enough for you, add a little espresso powder to both to amp up the chocolate flavour.
- The springform pan that is mentioned in the recipe method IS A MUST. Instead of worrying about your cheesecake falling apart while attempting to take it out of the pan, do invest on a springform pan, that way you can just pop off the sides and voila! A perfect cheesecake without the hassle.
