Rated 5 out of 5 by from I read all the comments first before making this. I read all the comments first before making this. So when I made it the first time I lined the pan with foil inside. and sprayed it. Then cooked the brownie just under done. Took it out while I made cheese cake filling. Pored filling in placed the whole thing in a waterbath the height of the brownie and cooked as directed. This made the cake perfect not over done and not fallen. The second time I replaced the sugar for malitole and reduced the carbs and it was as good as the first time cooking in waterbath again.

My problem with this recipe is not the taste; the flavor is 5 star (and thanks to whoever recommended putting chocolate chips in the cheesecake layer--yum!!) The problem is with the brownie bottom: either my oven temperature needs to be checked or the brownie doesn't bake properly because I baked it 15 minutes longer than recommended and still came out with a consistency like soft clay. It was almost impossible to remove from the pan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had the same problem with the brownie portion not being fully cooked after 25 minutes. I had the same problem with the brownie portion not being fully cooked after 25 minutes. The center portion of the cake had a thinner brownie layer and was thicker on the sides. I lengthened cooking time by 15 minutes after pouring cheesecake portion on top to make certain the brownie portion got cooked all the way through. A very rich cheesecake. I would make this recipe again and cook the brownie layer longer till cooked through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe was so easy and delicious! This recipe was so easy and delicious! I baked the brownie 20 minutes and it came out perfect. When pouring the cheesecake over the brownie start around the edges and then into the middle because the brownie is softer in the middle. The first time I made it I poured the cheesecake directly into the center and it collapsed the brownie. The cheesecake is restaurant quality!! This recipe is one I will make over and over again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe was perfect. This recipe was perfect. The brownie was dense and fudgey, and the cheesecake was creamy and delicious. I found that the baking times recommended were just right for my oven. We spread chocolate around the edge and coated with mini chocolate chips. We decorated the top with a chocolate basketweave pattern and halved cherries around the edges. SO DELICIOUS! Everyone was impressed at the family-get-together.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I'm wondering if anyone had this same problem. I'm wondering if anyone had this same problem. I baked the brownie portion of the cake for 25 minutes as directed. When I poured the cheesecake batter on the brownie, the brownie collapsed - it had apparently not cooked through the whole way. I also think I should have let the brownie cook before I put the topping on. I will try this again and increase the brownie cooking time by about 10 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG i cant wait to try this out! OMG i cant wait to try this out! would probably bake browine little longer and add in BIG choco chunks to brownie layer. the cheesecake part looks unbelieveable but try adding about a tsp of oraneg or lemon zest( coffee would be fun to in the brownie layer!) bake in a water bath to ensure good quality, and garnish with a fresh strawberry sauce(strawberries, half and half, bit of brown sugar) ENJOY!!!
