Woohoo! My first homemade birthday cake by Alan! This year is indeed a special birthday celebration for me! Normally, I’m the one making birthday cakes for other people and when it’s my turn, I get a commercially bought cake. So sad, right?! After a lot of hinting and sulking, Alan finally agreed to make his first cake for me 🙂


  • 2 cups digestive biscuit, crushed into crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 blocks 8 oz. packages of cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 can  14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 eggs, room temperature
  • 4 oz bittersweet/semisweet chocolate


  • Preheat oven to 180C. Line a springform pan with baking paper.
  • Mix sugar, melted butter and biscuit crumbs in a large bowl to form sticky “paste”. Spread and flatten out in pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside. Reduce oven heat to 150C.
  • Melt chocolate in a bowl.
  • Beat cream cheese in a large bowl. Beat in condensed milk followed by the eggs, one at a time.
  • Mix half the cream cheese batter with the melted chocolate.
  • Pour plain and chocolate batter into the baking pan and swirl with a knife or a skewer.
  • Bake for 40-50 minutes. Leave to cool in oven with door opened for 1 hours.
