Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 45 mins
Total Time 1 hr

Ingredients
  

  • 5 oz (150g) semisweet chocolate
  • 1 cup (200g) sugar
  • 1 tbsp (15ml) water
  • 8 oz (230g) cream cheese , room temperature
  • 5 large eggs , room temperature
  • 1 tsp (5g) vanilla extract
  • 1 can (14oz- 397g) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 can (12oz -350g) evaporated milk
  • 1/2 tsp (3g) salt

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • In a small saucepan add sugar and water. Melt over medium heat and cook without stirring until sugar dissolves and gets a caramel color.
  • Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl and melt over bain-marie. Let it cool to room temperature.
  • Remove from heat and pour the hot caramel  into the bottom of a 9 inch (23cm) pan. Swirl the pan to spread evenly. Set aside until you prepare the cream cheese mixture.
  • In a large bowl mix cream cheese until smooth. Incorporate eggs one at a time, vanilla extract, salt, sweetened condensed milk, melted chocolate and evaporated milk. Mix well until combined.
  • Pour the cream cheese mixture over the caramel into the pan.
  • Place the pan in a larger pan, place it on the oven rack and add boiling water halfway up the sides of the pan.
  • Bake for 40-50 minutes until set or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes almost clean.
  • Remove the pan from water and cool completely on a cooling rack.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or better overnight.
  • Run a knife around the edges of the cake to unmold it and invert onto a serving plate.
  • If some of the  caramel is stuck to the bottom of the pan, place the pan in a tray with hot water to melt the caramel sauce. Pour the sauce over the cake.
  • Add chocolate decoration  on top if desired ((I’ve made some chocolate leaves) and serve.
