Cheesecake Factory Kahlua Cocoa Coffee Cheesecake
Cheesecake recipes would never go out of "culinary fashion", and nor would this dessert! After coming acrossa
at a dessert cafe, I was inclined to try a new flavor, the lovely
which is enhanced by the presence of kahlua (Kahlúa is a well known Mexican
. It is heavy and sweet, with a distinct taste of coffee. And to top it all, I used Oreo cookies to makethe crust. There’s a perfect combination of all my favorite ingredients, and there is no way this dessertcould go wrong!! Rather than blending everything together, I decided to make it a layered coffeecheesecake with a larger layer of flavored coffee topped by a smaller one of espresso. So this gives you theperfect sweetness followed by a kick from the espresso. Words would not be able to give justice to thiscreation, so make your own and share it with everyone.
15 Oreo cookies - crushed3 tbsp butter - melted in microwave2 packets of 12 oz cream cheese - softened by beating1 1/2 cups sugar3 eggs3 tbsp all-purpose flour1/8 cup flavored instant coffee powder (I used French Vanilla)1/3 cup espresso coffee2 tbsp cocoa powder3 tbsp Kahlua (or any other coffee liquer)White frosting or whip cream - for garnish
For the crust, mix the butter and cookies and pat them into a springform pan lined with parchment paper.You can even use a shallow round small pizza pan to make the crust. Set side in the refrigerator to freeze.Now mix together the cream cheese and sugar until well blended. Add the eggs, one at a time and beatwell. Divide the cream cheese into 2 parts, 3/4 and 1/4th distribution. Add the plain flour, flavored coffeepowder and coffee liquer to the larger part and the espresso powder and cocoa powder to the smaller part.Pour the first larger layer of cream cheese mixture into the crusted pan. Then top it with the remainingespresso-cream cheese layer. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and bake for 40-50 mins, or until it looksbaked except for the center to be wiggling a little.Run a knife or metal spatula around rim of pan to loosen the cake; allow it to cool completely beforeremoving it. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. It is best prepared a day in advance. Now use a frostingcone and fill it with whip cream. Nip a very tiny hole in the cone and make cris-cross lines on the cake asshown in the pic. For more elaborate occasions, you can be more creative and make designs or patterns.Right before serving, gently cut the cake into wedges and serve with a hot cup of Cappucino!!Use this
