Mocha Swirl Cheese Cake


It is time to pamper hubby for his hard work on our new gates! That is really an amazing job. I couldn't help much, only can cook the food he likes. I am also helping him to control his diet, but wouldn't stop him to eat something he really likes. Just have to control the portion of each meal so that he still able to eat everything I make.

I have many cream cheeses stored in fridge which I got them while they were on sales. Believe it or not? Cream cheese here is 400% cheaper than in Malaysia. My sister asked me to hand carry some to her next time I go back. LOL!!


Here is my recipe for Mocha Cheese Cake. I should have baked them in hot water bath method, but I wanted to save time, so, the appearance of this attempt is not so nice. Anyway, it is still yummy! :-)

1. 1.5 cups crushed Oreo Chocolate Cookies.
2. 2 tbsp butter - melted.
3. 2 packs cream cheese (226g X 2) - soften.
4. 2/3 cup sugar.
5. 1/2 tsp vanilla extract.
6. 1/2 cup sour cream.
7. 2 eggs
8. 3 squares semi sweet baking chocolate - melted, cooled.
9. 1 tsp instant coffee powder - stir in melted chocolate when it is still warm.
10. Some fruits for decoration.

Steps :
1. Preheat oven to 325F.
2. Line a 8" spring form cake pan with aluminum foil, with ends of foil extending over sides of pan.
3. Mix cookie crumbs and butter, press firmly onto bottom of prepared cake pan. Bake for 10 minutes.
4. In a large mixing bowl, whisk cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until well blended.
5. Add in sour cream, stir to mix well.
6. Add in eggs, beat until well blended.
7. Remove 1/2 cup of the cheese mixture, set aside.
8. Stir melted chocolate & coffee into remaining cheese mixture.
9. Pour the mocha cheese mixture over the baked crust.
10. Spoon in the plain cheese mixture on top of the mocha cheese mixture.
11. Cut through the mixture with a knife several times for swirled effect.
12. Bake for 40~50 minutes.
13. Cool and refrigerate overnight.
14. Lift up the cheese cake from the pan.
15. Top with your preferred fruits, serve cool.


  1. This cake look so good, i want to make this. But, 3 square of cooking chocolate is actually how many ah?

  2. tin tin, 1 square is 30g, 3 squares are 90g. If you don't like the cracking edges like mine, you may try to bake with hot water bath method, but lower the temperature to 300F, 60~70 minutes baking time.
