Solar Chocolate Cheesecake

Solar Chocolate Cheesecake is as easy to make as in a traditional electric oven...

Solar Chocolate Cheescake in Sun Oven
This is actually quite an easy cheesecake to put together, and cooking time is not too much longer than the traditional method.


  • 2 cups chocolate wafer crumbs (or graham cracker)
  • 5 tbs melted butter

  • 3 packages cream cheese
  • at room temperature
  • 1 Cup granulated sugar
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar (or to taste)

1-To prepare crust, in a medium bowl, mix together chocolate crumbs and melted butter until well blended. Press into a 9-inch springform pan (cheesecake pan)

2-Pre heat Solar Oven to at least 300 F.

3-To prepare filling, in a large bowl, beat together cream cheese, sugar, and eggs at medium speed until smooth and fuffy. Spoon half of cream cheese mixture into crust.

4- Stir chocolate into remaining cream cheese mixture until well blended. Drizzle over batter in crust to make swirls.

5- Bake cheescake for about an hour and a half; set timer for 30 minutes. At thirty minutes adjust solar oven to sun and set for 30 minutes more
After thirty minutes more cake will be mostly baked except the middle, so set your timer for about 20-30 more minutes and when cake looks baked in middle check doneness by quickly inserting a knife to see if it comes out clean. If sticky allow to bake for another 10 minutes or more. Open and close your lid as quickly as possible in order to not lose any more heat than necessary.

6- Transfer pan to wire rack and allow to cool some while you make the chocolate frosting topping.

7- Melt your semi-sweet chocolate in a pan in your solar oven and then mix together with sour cream

8-Spread frosting over the whole top of the cheese cake and allow to cool completely.

9-Chill in refrigerator.
This cheesecake turned out very tasty as any traditionally cooked cheesecake.
