Chocolaty Peach Cheesecake

It was my Birthday a couple of weeks ago and I always use that as an excuse to indulge in my favourite cake: Chocolate Peach Cheesecake! I love cheesecake. I indulge very very seldom in it. It’s not very common in Switzerland and if I want some, I have to make it myself or go buy an exorbitantly expensive piece at Starbucks. I got the original recipe from the Philadelphia Cream Cheese Website a couple of years ago but amended the recipe a bit.

You may have noticed in a lot of my pictures that there are often products with a green-white design. These are low-budget products. While I’m luckily not on an extremely tight budget anymore as I was half a year ago, I still believe in buying cost consciously. While I do spend a bit more on better quality and local fresh produce, there are things where I don’t see why I should spend more. Especially if the low budget cream cheese tastes just as good as the expensive one with a brand name.

Anywhoooo, here come the ingredients:

  • 250g sponge biscuits or ladyfingers or as we call them “Löffelbiskuit”
  • 50g butter
  • 200g dark chocolate
  • 600g plain cream cheese
  • 100g sugar
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cans peaches (drained about 800g fruit, but save 2 tbsp of the juice)
