Zebra Ricotta Cheesecake
- Blend the sour cream, cream cheese, ricotta, and cracked eggs in a mixer to create a homogeneous mixture.
- Pour the batter into two separate bowls. Mix cocoa in one bowl. Add some sweetener on both bowls.
- Lay a parchment paper on the base of the baking form you will use. Alternate the pouring of the white and brown batter into the form. Use a big spoon (or measuring cup) to transfer the white batter first. Then pour the cocoa batter in the middle. Continue alternating the mixtures until all the batter has been used.
- Place the striped batter in the oven for an hour or so. Wait until the cake sets. The oven should be preheated to 350°F. Baking time may vary depending on the oven.
- Remove from the oven when cooked. Allow to cool for a few minutes then refrigerate overnight for 4-6 hours.
- Slice into wedges and serve.
