Made this . and EVERYONE raved about it!Reply
What the plastic cover called?Reply
Extremely decadent and rich. I put 2 heaped teaspoons of coffee in the cheese cake part, and 1 in the ganache, for a nice strong kick to the cake and it was perfect.Reply
This recipe had great reviews and everyone loved it. Just one thing I couldn't get the instant coffee to melt into the chocalate so it left some grains and not sure. Maybe next time I will melt the instant cofee with the heavy cream so it is well incorporated. ThanksReply
Hello I have a query if i make half the recipe then do i need to reduce the gelatin quantity also in half ? And please explain me why melted chocolate is used coffee cheese cake?Reply
