How to Make Chocolate Orange Cheesecake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Crust: Combine crumbs, cinnamon and butter; press onto bottom of a 9 inch spring form pan.
  • 2Combine cream cheese and sugar in large bowl, mixing at medium speed on electric mixer until well blended.
    Add sour cream and vanilla.
    Add eggs, one at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended.
  • 3In a medium bowl, blend melted chocolate into 3 cups batter.
    Pour chocolate batter over crust.
    Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
    Stir zest and liqueur into remaining batter; refrigerate until ready to use.
    Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees.
  • 4Spoon remaining batter over baked chocolate layer; continue baking 30 minutes or until center is almost set. Leave cheesecake in the oven for 1 hour after turning the oven off with the door open, to prevent cracking on the top surface.
    Loosen cake from rim of pan; cool before removing rim of pan.
    Refrigerate 4 hours.
    Heat marmalade just until warmed; spoon over cheesecake just before serving.
