Recipe: Marble Cheesecake

Marble cheesecake is extremely popular…. and with good reason... it looks so elegant .... a perfect cake for any occasion.

This is another easy and delicious cheesecake recipe…. It’s one of the many I have in my file from the folks at Philadelphia.


As always… I recommend using Philadelphia cream cheese… it really is the best.

Be sure to use my tips for preventing cracks in your cheesecake.


Recipe: Marble Cheesecake:

All you need:

For the crust:

1 cup graham cracker crumbs
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons butter or margarine

For the filling:

3 packages (8 oz each) Philadelphia Brand Cream Cheese, softened
¾ cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs
1 square Baker’s Unsweetened Chocolate, melted

All you need to do:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the crumbs, sugar and butter or margarine together using a fork.

Press the crumb mixture onto the bottom of a 9 inch spring form pan. Bake 10 minutes.

When crust is done baking, remove the pan from the oven and increase the oven temperature to 450 degrees.

Beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla at low speed until well blended.

Add the eggs one at a time, beating at low speed after each addition.

Take 1 cup of the cream cheese mixture and put it in a small bowl.

Blend the chocolate into the 1 cup of cream cheese mixture.

Spoon a layer of cream cheese mixture over the crust using about half the mixture.

Dot the layer with dollops of the chocolate cream cheese mixture using about half the chocolate mixture.

Repeat with the final half of the cream cheese mixture.

Dot the 2nd layer with dollops of the chocolate cream cheese mixture using the final half the chocolate cream cheese mixture.

Take a knife and cut swirls through the cream cheese mixtures to create the marbled effect.

Bake 10 minutes.

Reduce oven temperature to 250 degrees and bake for 30 minutes. Do not open the oven door during baking.

Remove the cake from the oven and loosen the rim of the pan.

Cool completely before removing the rim of the pan.
