Yield: 6 - 8 Persons

Ingredients

Crust:

1 & 1/2 cups very finely crushed chocolate cookie crumbs
3 Tablespoons granulated sugar
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

Filling:

1/2 cup Greek Yoghurt
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon instant coffee granules or espresso powder
8 oz. bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, at room temperature
3 Tablespoons natural, unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
1/4 teaspoon table salt
1-1/4 cups granulated sugar
3 large eggs, at room temperature

Frosting & Topping:

1 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese,
softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
2 Teaspoons Almond extract
1/2 cup raspberries

Instructions:

1. Switch oven on to 400F. Make the Crust by combining all the crust ingredients well. Transfer to a greased 9 inch spring form pan and press the crumb mixture firmly and evenly in the pan. Also press the crumbs to bring them up the sides of the pan to about 1 inch in height. Bake the crust for 10 minutes then allow to cool in the pan.

2. Reduce oven temperature to 300 F and make the filling as follows.

3. In a bowl, combine the vanilla extract, Yoghurt and coffee granules, stirring until all combined well.

4. Melt the chocolate in the microwave at 15 second intervals until smooth and all melted. Stir inbetween intervals. Set aside.

5. In a mixer, add the Cocoa powder, cream cheese and salt, and beat until smooth and fluffy. Then add the sugar and beat until combined and smooth.

6. Add the chocolate and combine, then add the eggs slowly, and beat on a low speed until just combined. (I suggest using a spoon and beating the eggs in to the mixture so you don't add too much air).

7. Transfer the mixture to the baking pan and smooth over evenly and place in the oven for between 50 - 60 minutes. The cake should wobble slightly in the middle, this is normal, and will set properly once it cools.

8. When the cake is cooked, allow to cool at room temperature in the pan, then place in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours until it is firm.

9. Make the frosting by using a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter until creamy. Mix in the almond, then gradually stir in the confectioners' sugar. then decorate with raspberries if you wish.
