I'm quite sure this is the same recipe I made for Christmas (the one I made was in a local fundraising cookbook, North American measurements). The ingredients are exactly the same. I really loved this cheesecake. I used blackcurrant liqueur and it adds a subtle different flavour. I think your serving sizes are way off...this is a dense cake and I don't know who could eat 1/6th of it. I cut it into 16 servings. A fantastic recipe for cheesecake and chocolate lovers.
