TWD: Low and Lush Chocolate Cheesecake

So after a long hiatus from baking, I decided I needed to make this week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection - the Low and Lush Chocolate Cheesecake. I so love cheesecake, and the fact that it's chocolate only makes it sound better.

So a few weeks ago when we were having company, I finally got in the kitchen and baked! Since I had the baby our meals have consisted of putting together a sandwich or pulling something out of the freezer. So I thought a home baked dessert would be fabulous.

Unfortunately, we weren't thrilled with this cheesecake. The chocolate flavor wasn't pronounced enough - instead it tasted more like cream cheese. It was okay, just not as great as I was hoping and expecting. I probably wouldn't make it again. If I were to bake a cheesecake, it would be Dorie's Tall and Creamy Cheesecake - that one was a real home run!

If you'd like to get the recipe or see how someone else's turned out, visit Tea and Scones.

So far, I've seen several other TWD members who agree about the chocolate and cheesecake combo. It was good, but just a little different for us. Looks pretty, though. Hope you had a great holiday. Happy New Year!

Your photo of the whole cheesecake looks just like mine (except you took a better picture!). And we thought the same thing about the cheesecake. Good, but not the best. Needed MORE chocolate! ;)
Happy New Year!

Looks like a lot of us thought the same thing. I liked this, but I added cinnamon and espresso to mine. My hubby was so-so on this. He's liked other ones I have made better.

Bummer that you didn't like it that much. It looks delicious!

It looks like it turned out great. Too bad the chocolate taste wasn't that great - I saw a few other people who said the same thing.

It's good to have you back in the kitchen!

Yes, We enjoyed it but would add more chocolate next time. Funny, but hubs said he could not taste the cream cheese. Ah, well.

Yours looks perfect.

Thanks for baking with me this week.
