Cheesecake "Zebra" is beautiful and insanely delicious. It is prepared no more complicated than an ordinary cheesecake. The addition of cocoa gives the dessert not only a bright and spectacular appearance, but also a special texture and taste.
Chop into crumbs, transfer to a container, add the melted butter, mix well.
The resulting mass is distributed in a split baking dish (diameter 18 cm), covered with foil.
In a container, combine cottage cheese, softened butter, sugar, starch, salt, cream. Mix well until smooth.
Add the eggs one at a time. Mix the mass very well after each introduction of eggs.
In a separate container, transfer half of the resulting mass (this is about 450 g.). In one half, add the cocoa powder.
Then, in turn, we spread the mass, first one tablespoon of the white layer, on top of one tablespoon of the chocolate layer, etc. If necessary, rub the mold up and down, right and left, so that the dough is evenly distributed over the mold.
I got it like this.
Next, with a toothpick, I made these patterns.
Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 10 minutes, then lower the temperature to 110 and keep in the oven for 1 hour - 1 hour 20 minutes. Put a baking sheet with water on the bottom of the oven. The cheesecake is ready when the center shakes slightly, if you move the shape. Allow the cheesecake to cool completely. Put in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
Before serving, decorate the cheesecake as desired
