Cheesecake, Pareve Brownie (P, TNT)
Source: Adapted from "Chocolate Bible," cheesecake from one of my husband's friends
Serves: 10 to 12

160g dark chocolate
3/4 cup oil
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla essence
3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup chocolate chips

2 packages pareve cream cheese
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. lemon juice
2 tsp. vanilla essence

Preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F).

Make Bottom:
Melt the chocolate in a double broiler and set aside.

Beat together the oil, sugar and eggs for 10 minutes on high speed. Stir in vanilla essence.

Add the melted chocolate and beat for 2 or 3 minutes.

Sift the flour and add to the mixture, beat for another 3 or 4 minutes.

Pour into pan and sprinkle the chocolate chips on top.

Make the Top and Assembly:
Beat together the ingredients for the cheesecake. Pour over the brownie bottom.

Bake for 15 minutes. Lower the temperature to 160°C (320°F) and bake for another 30 to 40 minutes, until the top starts to brown. Turn off the oven and leave the cake inside for an hour after it's baked. Cool on the counter and refrigerate at least 6 to 7 hours before serving.

Poster's Notes:
As with all "cheese"cakes, the longer it's in the fridge, the better it sets and the yummier it gets. I made it on Friday noon and served it for Shabbat lunch. Enjoy!
