I am very happy to introduce to you the newest addition to my cheesecake collection.
It’s a Polka Dot Cheesecake!
Isn’t it like the most adorable idea ever?
And besides that, it really is a gorgeous treat – the texture is just perfect and the flavor is out-of-this-world delicious. Yummy!
If you’d like to make your own polka dot cheesecake, then I sure have all the necessary details for you…
This is what we need.
1. To begin, preheat the oven to 300 °F (150 °C).
2. Grease an 8-inch (20 cm) springform pan and line it with parchment paper.
3. In a small bowl, combine the graham crumbs, sugar (2 tbsp), cocoa…
… and melted butter.
Use a fork to combine all the ingredients.
4. Press the mixture into the pan.
5. Then beat the cream cheese until smooth. Gradually add the sugar (1/2 cup – 100 grams). Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
6. Add the eggs, one at a time, on low speed.
7. Add the vanilla and sour cream. Scrape the sides of the bowl one more time and beat until smooth.
8. Reserve 1/2 cup (120 ml) of the cheesecake filling and set aside (!).
9. Melt the 2 oz (60 grams) of dark chocolate in a bowl placed over a pot of barely simmering water (or in a microwave on low temperature).
10. Stir the reserved 1/2 cup (120 ml) of cream cheese filling into the melted chocolate.
Just like this.
11. Pour the plain batter into the pan.
12. To make the dots, you will need a pastry bag fitted with a round tip. Fill the pastry bag with the chocolate cheesecake mixture.
13. Gently press the tip of the bag into the smoothed out plain cheesecake and squeeze the bag forming a dot. Place dots all over the cheesecake until the chocolate mixture is used up.
14. Place in the oven and bake for 1 hour. Turn off the oven and with the oven door slightly ajar, leave the cheesecake in the oven for an additional 1 hour.
15. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack. Run a knife around the inside edge of the pan to loosen the cheesecake.
16. Refrigerate for about 12 hours. Freeze if you wish for about 1 hour before cutting. Use a knife dipped in hot water to help when cutting.
Enjoy, dear friends!
This is a dream on a plate!
