Coffee Toffee Cheesecake
Total TimePrep: 45 min. Bake: 55 min. + chilling
I made this many times. It is always a BIG hit. Sometimes I add coffee liquor or Kahlua.
I have made this cheesecake twice now for 2 separate coffe-,lovers' birthdays and it was a hit with them. I, not being a coffee person at all, even will admit that the flavor is very nice and rich. However, I am frustrated that both times I made it, I baked it for the suggested time, but even after 65 minutes (the high end of the time frame), the filling was still not baked all the way through. I've left it in an additional 10 minutes and while the top was perfection, once it was released from the springform and cut into, it was more of a mousse texture, not at all like a baked cheesecake. I have a baking business on the side and have made countless cheesecakes with consistently wonderful results. I'm wracking my brain trying to figure out why I can't seem to achieve that level I would expect by following the recipe as is. Both times I did use a water bath, so perhaps I'll try it again with none....buy I do worry about burning it or drying it out. Has anyone else had this issue with this particular cake and, if so, what did you do?
I made this recipe for Christmas and it was a hit. Made it for a coffee aficionado So I quadrupled the amount of coffee in the recipe and it came out excellent. Instead of using chopped up Heath bars, I used the Heath brickle bits and they make a wonderful crust over the top after sitting on the cake for a few days. I also used white chocolate to drizzle instead of dark... it was a great contrast.
If I could add another star, I would:)Just made it again for my son's girlfriend's Birthday and it is , of course, a Hit.Everyone who has ever tasted this when made, badgers me for the recipe. Excellent, Tammy Baker:)Great recipe. Truly decadent:) I am making it again today for my kid's birthdays, they are 2yrs and one week apart in age, now in their 30's, but love this cheesecake,so making it for both of them:) In answer to one poster, if you don't like coffee, then I guess you can omit it, it will just be a toffee, chocolate cheesecake . As to another that had problem with not done in the middle, shut the oven off when time is up, leave the cheesecake inside the oven with the door ajar, for another hour or two, and your cheesecake will be just fine. Another tip, I don't use the "bain marie" aka...water bath method for my cheese cakes, I place a baking sheet or pan, larger than my cheesecake pan, with a half inch of water ,on a rack directly under my cheesecake pan. This does the trick just as well as the usual water bath method.
WOW, WOW, WOW!!!! This is very rich, so cut small slices, but it is delicious!!!!!!!
Made it for church - it got rave reviews and requests for the recipe!My only comment it for the chocolate drizzle to use more bars - maybe a total of three. One bar does not provide much chocolate drizzle.

The top & bottom was ok but my family & I didn't care much for the middle. Sorry but I would not make this again.
I really like this! It was easy to make, and I didn't have any problems. My uncle was crazy about it! It is defiantly for coffee lovers, though! Overall, Awesome! :D
This is one of my favorites. IT was soooo good. I used Starbucks via in the cheesecake. You definitely want to make this. Yummy!
