I’ve baked the cheesecake Ben-David had given me the recipe for; just so you folks can see I was serious with my announcement of baking it, here it is:

mocha cheesecake

My variations were that instead of the orange sauce, I glazed the cake right after baking with orange marmalade (bring 1 tablespoon of water and 2 tablespoons of marmalade to the boil; brush over still warm pastry), made the mocha cream with orange sugar (orange peel of untreated oranges filled into a tightly closing jar with caster sugar; store in a cool and dry place), arranged the cream in a traditional German pattern with an icing bag, and used chocolate mocha beans and candied orange peel rolled in sugar for decoration.

Keep the recipes coming. Lots of folks around here will be pretty grateful. 🙂
