How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Grease the bottom and sides of a 9" spring-form pan.
  • Cream together butter and sugar.
  • Add egg and vanilla, beat well.
  • Make a paste of cocoa, food colouring and water.
  • Add the paste to the creamed mixture and blend thoroughly.
  • Combine flour and salt.
  • Add buttermilk alternately with the flour mixture.
  • Mix soda and vinegar separately. When it foams, fold in to the batter.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan.
  • Bake 30 minutes. Cool completely in pan.
  • Lower oven temperature to 325F.
  • Beat cheese until fluffy.
  • Add the sugar a little at a time, beating until incorporated.
  • Add eggs, one at a time. Beat well after each addition.
  • Add flour, vanilla and lemon juice and mix well.
  • Add the sour cream and beat thoroughly.
  • Divide the batter into 6 bowls, colour each one differently: purple, red, yellow, blue, green, and orange.
  • Drop large spoonfuls of the coloured batters on the base.
  • Swirl each layer slightly.
  • Bake on top rack for 1 h 15 min.
  • Crack oven door and leave in oven for one hour.
  • After one hour, remove from oven. Let cool on rack.
  • Refrigerate for 24 hours.

    Hi! Neuchatel is another word for "light" cream cheese, you can use regular if you dont worry about fat. Paste colours work better, but I usually use what I have on hand (liquid) and use slightly more. It all works out!

    Hmmm, I may have to have a Hippie cheesecake request on my birthday dinner request this year...I certainly have the "hips" to qualify for this one.
