Cheesecake Factory Restaurant Copycat Recipe

24 ounces cream cheese, softened and cut into chunks
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup dairy sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Chocolate Cake:
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
2 cup granulated sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all -purpose flour
1 qty Chocolate Glaze for sides
1 qty German Chocolate Topping
whipped cream for garnish (optional)

Chocolate Glaze:
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons whipping cream

German Chocolate Topping:
2 egg yolks
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup butter, cut into small pieces
2/3 cup whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup chopped pecans

For Cheesecake: In bowl of electric mixer or in food processor fitted with metal blade, blend cream cheese, sugar, eggs, sour cream and vanilla extract until smooth. Set aside.

For Chocolate Cake: In large microwave safe bowl, combine chocolate and butter. Microwave on HIGH (100%) power for 2 to 3 minutes, or until just melted. Cool slightly. With fork, beat in sugar, eggs and vanilla extract until smooth. Add flour and mix until blended. Spoon into well-greased 9 1/2 inch springform pan, spreading evenly. Carefully, spread cheese mixture evenly over top of chocolate batter.

Bake in preheated 425 degree oven for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F and continue baking 55 to 60 minutes. Turn oven off, open oven door and let cake cool completely to room temperature in oven. Refrigerate until well chilled.

Remove sides from springform. Invert cake onto serving plate, so cheesecake is on bottom and chocolate cake is on top. Spread sides with Chocolate Glaze. Spread top evenly with German Chocolate Topping. Refrigerate until serving time. Garnish with whipped cream if desired.

For Chocolate Glaze: In small microwave-safe bowl combine chocolate chips with whipping cream. Microwave on HIGH power for 45 to 60 seconds. Beat until smooth. Spread on sides of cheesecake.

For German Chocolate Topping: In small microwave-safe bowl, beat egg yolks. Stir in sugar, butter and whipping cream. Microwave on HIGH power 4 minutes, stirring every minute. Remove from microwave and stir in vanilla extract. Stir in coconut and pecans until well blended. Refrigerate until mixture is of spreading consistency. Spread on top of the cheesecake.


  1. I made this yesterday, but the cake layer did not turn out....
    do you think the recipe should be 1/2 C of sugar and not 2 C?
    any other suggestions?

  2. My cake also turned out bad. The cheesecake part was fine, but the chocolate cake was hard and didn't taste right. The topping also turned out poorly because the egg yolks started to scramble when I was heating it. I did make the Hershey cheesecake and that was amazing!
