German Chocolate Cheesecake
GERMAN CHOCOLATE CHEESECAKE
Luby's Cafeteria Copycat Recipe
Makes 1 Nine Inch Cheesecake
1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 up granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
2 1/2 (8-oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 (12-oz.) can evaporated milk
1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup butter or margarine
5 large egg yolks
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1/3 cup pecan pieces
Preheat the oven 350 degrees.
TO PREPARE THE CRUST: In a small bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, the 1/4 cup of granulated sugar, and the 1/4 cup of butter/margarine. Mix well. Press the crumb mixture onto the bottom and 1-inch up the sides of a 9-inch springform pan. In the preheated oven, bake the crust for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Allow the crust to cool completely.
TO PREPARE THE FILLING: In a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese and the 1 cup of granulated sugar until smooth. Add the eggs, one at time, mixing well after each addition. Add the cocoa, flour, and the 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract. Mix until just well blended. Pour the filling into the cooled crust.
In the preheated oven, bake for 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted into the near center comes out clean. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
TO PREPARE THE TOPPING: In a medium saucepan, combine the milk, the 1 3/4 cups of granulated sugar, the 3/4 cup of butter/margarine, the 5 egg yolks, and the 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Stir the flaked coconut and pecan pieces into the chilled topping mixture. Spread the topping evenly over the chilled cheese cake.
