How to make it
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a 9” springform pan and line the base with parchment.
- Mix all the crust ingredients together well.
- Press evenly onto the bottom (not the sides) of the prepared pan.
- Bake just until set, about 6 minutes.
- Set aside while preparing filling. Keep oven on.
- Melt the chocolate in the microwave or over a pot of simmering water until smooth and glossy.
- In a bowl, beat cheeses, sour cream, brown sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch and salt until smooth. Blend in eggs, 1 at a time.
- By hand, fold in the chocolate until just blended in, trying not to incorporate air.
- Pour filling over crust and rap sharply on a countertop to dislodge air pockets.
- Smooth the top and place in a deep roasting pan.
- Pour boiling water into the roasting pan, about ½ way up the side of the springform.
- Bake until center is just set and just appears dry, about 1 hour.
- Turn the oven off and cool the cheesecake inside for 1 hour, then remove from the oven and waterbath and cool 1 hour on a rack.
- Run a knife around the side of cake to loosen the ring, but do not remove it.
- Cover loosely and chill overnight before removing the ring and slicing.
- Serve with Raspberry Compote
