So shall we embrace good day to one of the crucial luxurious and scrumptious chocolate cheesecakes you’ll ever meet?! Oh go on then… right here you go. An excellent wealthy and indulgent raspberry chocolate cheesecake which is utter heaven in each single chew. 

Baked cheesecakes

So I’ll clearly begin by saying that this cheesecake is a baked cheesecake as a result of it actually does simply make it higher. I do know I do know, I’ve so many no-bake scrumptious cheesecakes on my weblog now that are simply as superb, however to get that proper and indulgent flavour you do must have a baked cheesecake. 

The recipes are fairly much like my chocolate cheesecake bars and chocolate overload cheesecake as a result of they only labored so effectively, however with the portions altered to suit a a lot smaller tin compared. 

There are fairly just a few extra substances in a baked cheesecake as effectively however that could be a given – it is advisable to add in substances corresponding to eggs to get the proper texture and finish end result I’m afraid! 

The method is much like the purpose that you need to make the bottom and filling, bake it, after which sure… you continue to need to set it within the fridge ideally in a single day! There’s no such factor as a fast cheesecake, sadly. 


For the bottom, it’s fairly much like all different cheesecakes – however I used Oreos this time. I made a decision to make use of Oreos as they’ve darkish colors so would distinction effectively with the remainder of the cheesecake however that is elective. You should utilize digestives, shortbread, gingernuts, and many others.

I used a smaller quantity of butter in comparison with regular as Oreos require much less butter as a result of creme filling (which sure, you do go away in!). But additionally, I discover it greatest to bake the bottom of a baked cheesecake for about 10 minutes earlier than including the filling to create a seal and forestall leakage. 


For the filling, I went a bit of bit loopy to get that scrumptious chocolatey fudgey flavour and oh my days it was WORTH IT!! Heaven in each chew I ought to say (once more). 

  • Chocolate – As you wish to have a wealthy and indulgent cheesecake for one thing like this, you actually do must use DARK chocolate. It’s meant to be wealthy and scrumptious, and it really works much better with the upper cocoa content material. I do additionally add in cocoa powder to provide an additional trace of that chocolate. 
  • Cream cheese – Please, as all the time, use FULL-FAT CREAM CHEESE. Whether or not it’s grocery store personal, Philadelphia, and many others and many others… simply be sure it’s full fats. Decrease fats content material may cause splitting and a wasted cheesecake. 
  • Sugar – I used a combination of caster sugar and light-weight brown sugar however you need to use all of 1 or the opposite should you fancy – I simply favored the stability of the style of the sugar.
  • Eggs – I used medium eggs as I all the time do. When you have giant you’ll be able to nonetheless use three, it gained’t trigger an issue with a baked cheesecake. 
  • Cream – For this specific cheesecake I used double cream, however soured cream and pure yoghurt work very well, additionally. 
  • Flavours – In order all the time, I used vanilla, after which the raspberries after all! 


In order talked about above it’s tremendous necessary to have a excessive cocoa content material chocolate to get the very best outcomes you presumably can. I all the time use this darkish chocolate as a result of I purchase it in bulk and I like the standard of it, however any darkish chocolate with a 70%+ cocoa content material would work effectively. 

Usually in baked cheesecakes use plain flour, however on this I exploit the cocoa powder because the ‘dry’ so it’s necessary to maintain it in. Nonetheless, should you didn’t wish to use cocoa powder, you’ll be able to swap it to the plain flour should you wanted or needed to. 

The ornament of the cheesecake makes use of a ganache during which I exploit a combination of the darkish chocolate once more, but in addition some milk chocolate. This is similar ganache I exploit just about the entire time now as a result of it’s simply the proper stability of sweetness and heavenly deliciousness. 


As I’ve now down two baked chocolate cheesecakes, the raspberries have been the addition to stage all of it up and simply make this recipe totally epic. 

I used recent raspberries contained in the cheesecake combine in order that they might bake into the combination and maintain it moist, and then you definately’d additionally get a bit of pocked of sharp and candy flavour all through the chocolate. You should utilize frozen, however generally it may possibly make it a bit of moist. 

I used some extra recent raspberries to brighten the cheesecake as a result of the color is gorgeous, and likewise some freeze dried raspberries. They’re like tiny little jewels that simply make something look good! 

Bain Marie 

So relating to baked cheesecakes there just a few issues that may assist you to out… some, I don’t trouble with, but it surely is dependent upon the outcomes you might be after. 

Usually baked cheesecakes can have cracks in them as soon as they’ve cooled, and while i don’t thoughts this as I simply cowl the highest in ganache anyway, you’ll be able to forestall this by baking the cheesecake right into a bain marie. 

You want to wrap the bottom and sides tin you might be utilizing in foil with the intention to then sit the cheesecake in a big tray of water… the water must go about half means up the perimeters of the tin, and the foil is there to forestall any of the water attending to the cheesecake. You observe the baking steps the identical means, you simply have to be cautious when taking the cheesecake out of the water.
