I love this type of cheesecake! I am a more chocolaty whereas hb prefer coffee/chocolate type of cheesecake. the most important thing abt cheesecake.. it has to be rich and yummy!.. complicated to bake it? not really... its a little time consuming tho but its worth the effort...I suggest u start baking it early so that u can hv it as desert after dinner... recipe fm Alex Goh.
