Eggless Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe

"Explore the Vegetarian Chef in YOU!"

This Eggless Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe sets the standard for eggless baking.

My Dad would call any attempt at improvement on perfection “gilding the lily!” He would ask “When something is perfect just the way it is then. . . how could you possibly improve upon it?” To which we answer now as then “Silly, add chocolate!”

Ingredients:

Crust:

  • 6 Tbs. Melted Butter
  • 1 ½ Cups Crushed Graham Crackers
  • 2 Tb. Sugar

Mix together and place in a spring form pan. Using a flat sided, flat bottomed glass, press material into the corners of the pan; and smooth the bottom and sides. Bake 10 minutes. Set on wire rack to cool.

Filling: 

  • 1# Ricotta
  • 2 pkgs. Cream Cheese
  • 2 Cups Sour Cream
  • ¾ Cup Orange Blossom Honey
  • 1 ½ tsp. Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 1 ½ tsp. Frontier Herb Co’s Almond and Vanilla Extracts
  • ¼ Cup Ener-G Egg Replacer or OrgraN No Egg (dry)
  • 3 Tbs. Swans Down Cake Flour

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350º

For Chocolate Curls:

The hardware you will need for Chocolate Curls is: a double boiler, a flexible putty knife, a long off-set metal spatula and a baking or cookie sheet. Of course, you will also want some really excellent organic chocolate, like Green & Blacks, Newman’s Own, Dagoba or whatever your favorite might be. Be aware that some chocolate candy companies add bits and pieces of fruit and nuts to their candy bars which would definitely change the look of your Chocolate Curls and may not work well at all.

Melt Organic Bitter Sweet or Extra Dark Chocolate in the top of a double boiler, stirring constantly. Spread on the baking sheet as quickly and evenly as possible. Allow to cool for about 6 – 7 minutes.

The chocolate needs to set-up to the right consistency before you begin to try to curl it. If it is too cold and firm it will shatter into shards; however, if it hasn’t set up properly yet it simply will not curl. The angle to hold the putty knife at to achieve a perfect curl is somewhere between 33º and 45º though it seems to be a matter of personal preference.

To put the finishing touches on this eggless chocolate cheesecake recipe, top with Chocolate Curls just before serving. Enjoy!
