This is one of our favorite cheesecakes! I was just going to post it, but I'm glad to see that someone already has it listed. We make it exactly as stated, except mix the eggs in one at a time which gives it a better texture. Also, we use chocolate graham crackers instead of wafers for the crust. Thanks for posting!

This is a most yummy cheesecake. I baked it this evening, my home smelt as delicious as a bakery does, and I am beaming because it came out simply fantastic! I made a few changes here and there in the recipe which are as follows: Instead of 5 eggs, I used 3 eggs. Next, I used 2 tsps. of vanilla essence{an ingredient which was not mentioned here}. I also used 4 tbsps. of Coco Cola{I was desperate to use Coke in a cake since a few weeks...lol}, 3 tbsps. of Nestle's Coffee-mate coffee creamer{Lite} and 3 tbsps. of Nestle cream{another ingredient not mentioned here. I used this one because I just had to put it somewhere today or it would get bad as it was going to be expiring tomorrow}. Instead of semi-sweet chocolate which is pretty hard to get here, I used 1/2 cup of Cadbury's Drinking Chocolate Powder and 1/2 cup of Cadbury's Cocoa Powder. As for the chocolate wafer crumbs, I used 200 gms. of Hazelnut Flavoured Cream Wafer crumbs. I baked the cheesecake in a pre-heated oven for 50 minutes at 150C. I then baked it at 180C for 10 minutes 80 seconds. Thereafter, I allowed it to sit in the oven for 15 minutes and then took it out. I let it cool completely and then inverted it onto the serving platter and frosted it. I used a chocolate glaze for frosting it made with confectioner's sugar and cocoa powder{using a little milk and some butter to give it some consistency}. This was an incredible cake and my family & I thank you for sharing the recipe.
