This delicious recipe came from one of the members of our Facebook Group. Janet has been a Pinch of Nom Facebook Group member for several months and really enjoys posting on the page and reading other people’s inspirational posts. Here’s a bit about her journey:

“I joined a local weight loss group in November 2014 as I was concerned about my high blood pressure. Within 12 months I was 2 pounds from target having lost 4 stone 2 pounds. I then lost my way, and for the last 12 months have been going up and down, and I now have 21 pounds to target.

I rejoined my group in Diss, Norfolk last week. The group have missed me as they consider me as the resident baker, who always takes in samples for tasting! I am determined to get to target in 2017, however long it takes.”

The coffee in this recipe is a clever addition as it gives it the hint of bitterness that you’d get from a good dark chocolate, without the additional points or calories.

If you don’t like coffee, then this can be left out but it really adds to the depth of flavour.

Although it doesn’t have a biscuit base, the clever oaty topping really gives it some crunch. It will last for several days in the fridge…if you can resist!

You could serve it with some fresh fruit – strawberries or raspberries would be soooo delish!

Do I need any special equipment to make this Chocolate Mud Pie?

You’ll need a couple of things for this Chocolate Mud Pie. First you’ll need an 8 inch loose bottomed cake pan, like this one on Amazon.

You’ll also need a fine grater like this one. Using one of these makes your grated chocolate or cheese go so much further. You can pick one up on Amazon as well.

The chocolate extract we use in this recipe adds that extra chocolate hit without the added Syns, Points and Calories. You can pick some up from most supermarkets, or on Amazon!

How do I make this Chocolate Mud Pie?

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 200°C, and line an 8inch, loose bottomed cake tin with baking parchment.

Step 2

In a large bowl, mix together the quark, Philadelphia, eggs, granulated sweetener and chocolate extract. Add the coffee granules to the boiling water and add to the mixture. Sift in the cornflour and cocoa powder and stir well to ensure it is thoroughly mixed.

Step 3

Pour the mixture into the lined cake tin and bake for 10 minutes in a hot oven. Turn the oven down after this time to 140°C and bake for a further 25 minutes. Check the cheese cake after this – it should have a slight wobble with no runniness.

Step 4

Leave to cool completely and refrigerate for an hour before adding the topping.

Step 5

For the topping:

In a dry frying pan, add the caster sugar and oats. It is important to use sugar and no sweetener for this. Leave on a moderate heat, moving the pan occasionally until the sugar has melted and oats have toasted. Leave to cool.

Step 6

Once the cheesecake has been refrigerated, take the choc shot and spread gently around the edge of the top of the cheese cake. Crush up the caramelised toasted oats as you sprinkle them around the edge and pat gently so they stick to the choc shot.

Step 7

Using a fine grater, grate over the dark chocolate into the centre of the cheesecake. Slice into 10 pieces and serve.

    1. Hi Sarah
      Chocolate extract is made by infusing an alcohol solution with cocoa beans, the same way vanilla extract is made. It has a real chocolatey flavour. You can get chocolate flavouring, but they tend to have a bit of an artificial taste to them. You can pick the extract up on Amazon and Lakeland

    1. Hi Lisa
      Yes you could use Truvia. Sukrin is exactly the same consistency, weight and sweetness of normal sugar, so you can use it as a direct replacement for sugar. Other sweeteners are a lot sweeter and weigh much less, and they can differ greatly. It would probably be a good idea to check out the website for the sweetener you choose. You should find the conversion rate of sweetener to sugar

    1. Hi Lindsey
      Cornflour is gluten free, and often used in gluten free cooking. But you could use xanthan gum if you prefer

  1. Hi, can this be made with something else instead of chocolate extract? I was just getting ready to make this and I thought I had some but turns out that’s a giant nope 🙁

  2. What can inise instead of choc extract that is can pop out to get as my local Sainsbury’s doesnt sell it

  3. What’s a choc shot? Wondering if you could reduce this further by using Natvia instead of the syrup for the sweetness.

  4. Made it today & it was absolutely delicious. Only problem is, it’s more like a mousse texture & as it’s standing in the fridge, loads of liquid is seeping put onto the plate. What have I done wrong???

  5. I’d love to make this but can not eat cheese. I can just now tolerate quark. Is there a way you could make this by substituting the Phili cheese with something else?
    Thanks

  6. Hi made this and used bournville cocoa powder, was that the right sort to use or would a drinking chocolate be better (less bitter) I liked it but I like dark chocolate 😀

  7. Hi I really want to make this but I’ve only got powdered sweetener will it make a big difference? Thanks
