A is one of them, she love the cake so much that she wanna order from me. I baked this cake as a farewell gift for her since she is residing in JB that she hardly has chance to taste my baking in future unless she comes over to Singapore.
I am always impress by the swirl pattern, each cake will come out different swirl and I had baked one looked like crescent moon, there were the same cakes but with every few slices, the swirl pattern changed. So I am enjoying looking at the swirl pattern, beside tasting it ^0^.
I had baked additional one to bring office, everyone was so happy and welcomed the cake even was served right after lunch :).
Ingredients : Yield 2 cake tins size of 8" x 3.5" x 3"
300g cream cheese, softened
50g castor sugar
1. Beat cream cheese with sugar until light and fluffy
2. Beat in egg until well incorporated and set it aside
250g butter, softened
4 tbsp cocoa powder
160g self-raising flour
1.25 tsp baking powder
1.25 tbsp chocolate milk
1. Sieve flour, baking powder and cocoa together and put aside
2. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy
3. Add egg, one at a time and beat until well incorporated into mixture
4. Fold flour mixture and chocolate milk alternatively into egg mixture.
5. To assemble, pour half of mixture ‘B’, then all of mixture ‘A’, then followed by the remaining mixture ‘B’.
6. Bake in preheat oven at 180C for 45-50 min or until skewer comes out clean.
The cake is so heavenly. The chocolate cake is so moist, soft and fluffy and with the rich and creamy cheese mixture added, both complement each other so well. The cake taste equally yummy if is refrigerated, I love the cake either in room temperature or chill in fridge.
Eh, this is very special.ReplyDelete

always love cheesecake. beautiful swirls too :)ReplyDelete
I like the swirls they are so lovely. Ur cake looks fabulous.ReplyDelete
I am lucky to have tasted this cake many years back made by my auntie, till now I still remember it.
You can't go wrong with cheesecake. I love the swirls..and the cake looks so moist and rich.ReplyDelete
Love the swirls Jess. Your cheese cake looks moist and mouth-watering! May i have my piece please please please...ReplyDelete
Looks inviting, book-marked it. Will bake this for my children! Thanks for sharing Jess!
Jess, I'm a big fan of choc swirl cheesecake too! Me and my mom have been using the same recipe for years since we discovered it. The only difference is for the cheese batter, a little bit of lemon/lime juice is called for. So, there's this familiar tang usually present in a plain cheesecake. Here's mine, thought I'd share with you too since I'd blogged about it long ago:ReplyDelete
What's so special about yours is it calls for choc milk! I'm sure it's deadly chocolaty!
Just like you, it feels happy to just stare at each slice of the cake. The swirl is just different! Exciting!
Thanks Kristy, Wiffy & Angie :)ReplyDelete
Yes Angel, the taste of this cake is so good that once you have it, you won't forget at all :PReplyDelete
Sure Jessie, you can get as many as you can hahaha.... hope your children will like the cake :)ReplyDelete
Pei Lin, actually the original recipe just call for milk but there was once I ran out of milk so I replaced with chocolate milk and I found tasted not much different but more chocolately so from there onwards, I will use either one is available :P.ReplyDelete
I guess most people who try once will become the fan, so you and me and your parents are in the fan club heeheehee...
I ever make this cake very long time ago, it's nice ya...ReplyDelete
Moist, soft and fluffy ...and chocolate. I'm sold!ReplyDelete

Hi Somewhere in Singapore, yes it is very nice, one of my favourite recipe :).ReplyDelete
Mary, is my favourite too hahaha...
Jane, try it, let me know whether you like it or not :)ReplyDelete
苏联妈妈, I agreed with you, it will nvr go wrong for chocolate & cheesecake.
Cookie Sleuth, the taste of the cake is superb :)

Thanks no-frill recipe and yes the cake is delicious.
Lani, try it out and let me know :)
This sounds really delicious. I am bookmarking it. I have some cream cheese in the fridge. Thanks for recipe :)ReplyDelete
I notice self-raising flour is used for this cake, do I still need to add baking powder?ReplyDelete
Hi Mysimplefood, you are welcomed and thanks for droppoing by :).ReplyDelete
Hi TC Leow, that is not typo error, the recipe call for self raising flour and baking powder, probably to make the cake more fluffier?
温馨小屋, this cake is super easy to bake, hope you will like it :).ReplyDelete
Thanks for the recipe. I baked the cake today and it's really awesome!ReplyDelete
Here is my bake.
Cythia, glad to hear you like the cake :)ReplyDelete
I've just baked this and it really taste good! Also just realised that I did a similar recipe before ;-) Tks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Hi Quizzine, I saw your cake, looks yummy too and glad that you like it :).ReplyDelete
Babe.. I ust try the recipe.. its great... but I put too much cocoa powder.. guess i am too generous with the cocoa.. u can view my final art piece..ReplyDelete
Hi Linlin, glad to hear that you and your family like the cake :). Unless you add in additional cocoa powder, if you follow the recipe and your chocolate cake turned out darker color, probably due to the brand of cocoa powder, different brand result different shade of brown too :).ReplyDelete
hmm ok.. perhaps the nxt time round i reduce abit on the cocoa powder... hee!!ReplyDelete
Hi Linlin, do update me if you are baking again :)ReplyDelete
Hi Jess, I saw a few variation on your Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake. For 250gm cheese u used 1 egg, 500gm cheese also 1 egg? no change in texture after baking? can increase to 2 eggs?ReplyDelete
Hi Peng, I had replied you earlier on this. For the 500g cream cheese, I used 1 whole egg + 1 yolk cos I had one yolk to get rid off. For taste wise, dun seem to have much different, still taste delicious. But in normal circumstances, I will still use 2 whole eggs lah.ReplyDelete
I've baked the cake yesterday and it was a hit among the crowd! Thanks for sharing :)
Tokyo do not sell choc milk, do u know what can I substitute with?
Hi Xris,you can use fresh or UHT milk, I used chocolate milk cos that was what I can find in the fridge. If I remember correctly, the original recipe actually didnt call for milk, I added in to enhance the moisture of the texture.ReplyDelete
i had bake this cake 3-4 times and yet no time to thank you for your wonderfull recipe...my parent love this cake so much.ReplyDelete
Hi, thanks for sharing your recipe. I tried it out and it was good ... real good!Can I change the cheese cream to normal cream? Just like the Toast Box cream cake. Do you have that "cream" recipe to share? Thanks.ReplyDelete
I am not too sure whether can use cream to replace cream cheese as I never try b4. As for the Toast Box cream cake, I have not tried yet so not sure how is the taste.
I just want to say Thanks for sharing this recipe. I was looking to bake something different from the usual cheesecake and came across your recipe. I tried it yesterday and enjoyed a very pleasant afternoon tea with your cake. Thank you.
