Choc Orange Baked Cheesecake by cakecrumbs Choc Orange Baked Cheesecake by cakecrumbs
This is the cake I made for my boyfriend's 31st birthday. It always amuses me how everyone tells him how lucky he is that I can make him these amazing cakes, but all he wants for his birthday is cheesecake. Cheesecake! It breaks my heart. 

They are his favourite thing, though, and it is his birthday. So cheesecake it was. 

This cheesecake is a chocolate orange cheesecake inside a cinnamon and almond biscuit base. I topped it with whipped cinnamon chantilly cream and candied orange slices. 

I'm not huge on cheesecake, but this was pretty amazing. Mostly because it tasted like chocolate mousse. 

I'm a complete novice when it comes to baking cheesecakes and made typical beginner errors, which led to some cracking and falling in the surface. But hey, lesson learned and we certainly won't do that next time. And it's always better making errors that only affect aesthetics and not taste. But I was still infuriated at myself for my laziness. The boyfriend could not have cared less.

If I were wealthy, I think I'd want to have a chance to ask to hire you as my personal baker, chef, etc!

You must steal the spotlight at every bake off or cake sale. Am I correct?

Your boyfriend has good taste, both in women, and cakes. You see, "cheesecake" very clearly has the word 'cake' in it. Therefore, it IS suitable as a birthday CAKE.
Which is why my wife makes me a Key Lime Cheesecake for my birthday. Since it's in the summer, it's quite appropriate!

What do you mean all he wants is cheesecake and it breaks your heart???? Cheesecake is the best thing that has ever existed on this earth and I always request cheesecake every year for my birthday. People don't even ask anymore they just know. Now I wanna go out and buy cheesecake D: Cheesecake

I'm overly biased.

But I'm going to have to try this recipe. It doesn't even look bad. But I'd probably eat cheesecake if it came out looking like mushed up ball.

Well, there's a cheesecakery nearby with more than 100 different flavours so... it's not that "it's just cheesecake" ;). Anyhoo, I'm not big on cheese cake either, but this sounds so good for a chocoholic I should give it a try!

To avoid the cracking, cook it with the cheesecake pan in a shallow pan (typically a cookie sheet) with water in it.  That's the technique I use, and what my bosses used in their bakery.  Another thing you could do would be to cook it for longer at a lower temperature.

That said, you did a magnificent job on this and it looks fantastic!  The decoration in the middle takes this cheesecake out of the realm of typical to the realm of extraordinary.  The whole idea sounds absolutely scrumptious, though I would have to take out the almond from the recipe for myself. 

Thank you very, very much for sharing this with us, and the recipe as well.

That looks delicious! I think i'll try it for grandpa's birthday (this sunday), though i'll have to leave out the chocolate, since he's allergic to it.
