Nutella Cheesecake

I made this nutella cheesecake a while ago, because of my friend, Cherry. She shared this one link of a nutella cheesecake recipe. And I was like "Cheesecake? with Nutella?! Hell yeah!" 
I never thought that I would make it. But that picture of the cake....... I felt like it was whispering to me all the time to try and make it... (okay, I know I'm exaggerating, but at least you know how tempting it was right?) 

Sooo I went to carrefour and buy nutella and the cream cheese. So here is the recipe : (I looked through different recipe instead of the one that Cherry shared in facebook. Because hers is refrigerated. And I want it to be baked)

original recipe from Instructables (click to see step by step pic!)
For the crust:
  • 200 g digestive cookies
  • 1/2 cup butter (113 g)
  • 1/4 cup sugar (50 g)
For the filling:
  • 250 g cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 150 g Nutella
For the frosting:
  • 60 g dark chocolate
  • 1/3 cup butter (75 g)
  • 80 g powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 

Method :
Grease, or spray with Pam, a spring form pan. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). In a bowl combine the cookies (finally crushed), sugar, and melted butter.

Press the crumbs evenly over the bottom of the spring form pan.  Cover and refrigerate while you make the filling.

In bowl place the cream cheese, sugar, and flour.  Beat on medium speed until smooth 
Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition
Add the Nutella and milk and incorporate
Take the crust out of the refrigerator and pour in the filling. Bake it at 150 C (300 F) for about 1h and 15 min.
In the meantime n the meantime prepare the frosting by melting the chocolate, beating the butter, sugar and vanilla until smooth and fluffy and then adding to it the melted chocolate.

Spread the frosting over the cheesecake, cover and refrigerate
Vie's Result :

Vie's Notes : For the finishing touch, I put more Nutella on top of the cake (who can resist it right?) instead of frosting. And this is the link that Cherry shared to the nutella cheesecake that is refrigerated, in case you don't have an oven ;)
