Double Dark Chocolate Cheesecake

This is the chocolate cheesecake I shared as my talent at the recent reunion.

Cheesecake Recipe at Epicurious

I changed a couple of things in the recipe.  First I bake the cheesecake in a 12 inch cake pan lined with a parchment paper circle.  Cheesecake and spring-form pans have never worked well together for me.

Second I add the chocolate to the batter before the eggs.  Otherwise you over-beat the eggs. 

Third I serve this with raspberry jam which I sometimes spread under the ganache and sometimes just drizzle over each piece.
