Ingredients: 18 cm diameter cake

Biscuits
about 90 g
Butter
50 g
Cream cheese
200 g
Sugar
90 g
Eggs
3
Heavy cream
100 ml
Pancake mix
50 g
Chocolate bars
110 g (2 bars' worth)

Steps

1. Put the biscuits in a plastic bag, then use your body weight to crush with your hand.
2. Put the butter in a heatproof bowl, lightly wrap with plastic wrap, and heat in the microwave at 500 W for about 30 seconds to melt. Add Step 1 and mix well.
3. Tightly line the pan with kitchen parchment paper and add Step 2. Use your hand to firmly press the mixture down until hardened. Chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
4. Put the cream cheese in a separate bowl, lightly wrap with plastic wrap, and microwave at 500 W for about a minute to soften.
5. Add the sugar and mix until smooth.
6. Add one egg at a time, mixing well with each addition.
7. Add the heavy cream and mix.
8. Add the pancake mix and mix thoroughly.
9. Boil some water and put it into a large bowl. Break up the chocolate into small pieces and put it into a smaller bowl. Put the smaller bowl in the larger bowl with hot water (to bain-marie).
10. Preheat the oven to 180℃. Once the chocolate has melted, add about 10 ml of Step 8 and use a rubber spatula to mix well.
11. Add the rest of Step 8, then lightly mix with Step 10 to create a marbled design.
12. Remove Step 3 from the refrigerator and pour Step 11 into it.
13. Bake in the 180℃ oven for about 50 minutes. When a toothpick or skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.
14. It's done! If you chill in the refrigerator before serving, it's even more delicious!

Story Behind this Recipe

I added chocolate to my family's baked cheesecake! To figure out how to do the marbling, I consulted a cookbook.
