Cherry Chocolate Cheese Cake

 My dad was going away and he was going to be away still when his birthday happened so I got it together and baked him a cake and had him over. His favorite cake is black forest so I thought this would be pretty close (I wanted to used what I had in the house)
1 pkg (each 8 oz/250 g) cream cheese
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla
1 Pinch salt
1 1/2 cups sour cream
3/4 cup of pitted cherries
1 bar of chocolate (or as much as you want!)

10 graham crackers 


1. Crust: Layer the graham crackers at the bottom of a 7'' spring form pan

2. In large bowl, beat cream cheese until softened. Gradually beat in sugar; beat for 3 minutes or until smooth and light, scraping down bowl twice. Using low speed, beat in eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition and scraping down bowl often. Blend in lemon juice, vanilla and salt, then sour cream. Pour over crust.

3. Bake in centre of 325°F (160°C) oven for 1-1/4 hours or until shine disappears and edge is set yet centre still jiggles slightly. Let cool. Service with chocolate or cherry sauce or ice cream!  


  1. OOO YUM!
