Chocolate Tuxedo Cheesecake




WHITE CHOCOLATE
1 1/2 lb Cream cheese; softened
1/2 c Sour cream
1 ts Vanilla extract
6 oz White baking chocolate;
2 Envelopes unflavored gelatin
1/4 c Cold water
CHOCOLATE LAYERS
1 1/2 c Semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 c Butter; softened
1/2 c Granulated sugar
2 lg Eggs
1 ts Vanilla extract
1 1/2 c All-purpose flour
1 ts Baking soda
1/2 ts Salt
1 c Sour cream
CHOCOLATE SOUR CREAM
1 1/3 c Semisweet chocolate chips
6 tb Butter
2/3 c Sour cream
1 ts Vanilla extract



FOR THE WHITE CHOCOLATE CHEESECAKE LAYER:
Beat cream cheese with confectioners sugar until smooth.
Blend in sour cream, vanilla extract and white chocolate.
Stir the gelatin into the cold water in a small saucepan and allow mixture to stand several minutes to soften.
Then heat mixture gently over a low setting until thoroughly dissolved.

Cool briefly, then blend into the cream cheese mixture.
Line bottom of a 9-inch springform pan with foil, then coat pan and foil well with a nonstick spray.
Pour mixture into prepared pan, cover top of pan and chill until firm.
This cheesecake layer can be prepared up to two days in advance, and held in the refrigerator.

FOR THE CHOCOLATE LAYERS:
Melt chocolate chips in a small heavy gauge saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
Preheat oven to 350F and arrange rack to the center position.
Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
Cream the butter with the sugar until very light and fluffy.
Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Stir in the vanilla extract and the cooled, melted chocolate.
Whisk the flour with the baking soda and salt and gradually stir into the batter.
Blend in the sour cream and divide batter evenly between the two prepared pans.

Bake at 350F about 25 minutes or until layers spring back when lightly pressed in their centers.

Cool layers in pans 10 minutes, then loosen and turn out onto a rack to complete cooling.

YIELD: Two 9-inch layers

CHOCOLATE SOUR CREAM FROSTING:

Melt chocolate chips and butter in a small, heavy gauge saucepan over low heat, stirring until smooth.
Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl and cool 10 minutes.
Stir in sour cream and vanilla extract.
Gradually add confectioners sugar, beating until frosting is smooth.

TO ASSEMBLE THE CAKE:
Arrange one of the cooled chocolate cake layers in center of a cake plate, top side down.
Placing top side (because of its moist surface)
down will help to secure cake to plate, preventing layers from slipping after cake is assembled.
Release rim of the springform pan.
Holding cheesecake in one hand and chocolate cake layer
(on plate) in other hand, quickly invert chocolate layer
(plate and all) on top of the cheesecake.

Quickly flip the two, now attached layers back over, so chocolate layer is again on bottom.
Now, you can easily remove springform pan bottom from (now top)
of cheesecake layer.
Arrange the remaining chocolate cake layer (top side down)
on top of cheesecake layer.

Using a long sharp knife and a slight sawing motion, carefully cut around rim of cheesecake layer to make it even with chocolate layers. Frost sides and top of cake and serve.

The cheesecake layer will hold at room temperature several hours.

For best results, serve cake within 3 hours of assembling.
Refrigeration will cause the frosting to loose its beautiful sheen.

YIELD
: One, three layer, 9-inch round cake

NOTES :
This cake goes beyond elegant.
The center layer is actually a cheesecake, a white chocolate cheesecake.

  2. What amount of confectioner's sugar in the cheesecake layer?

  3. There is no amount given for the confectioner's sugar in the sour cream frosting layer. We just skipped sugar and it was quite good. It gave it kind of a dark chocolate flavor.

  4. Hi I just found your blog, and I have the same questions as the commenters above. What are the measurements for the granulated sugar in the different parts of the recipe.
    Thanks
