Chocolate - Lemongras Cheesecake

Now, the last days was very busy and in fact the next days will also not be very quite... But sometimes it happens that you have too much to do and that you can´t really change it by yourself.. So thats the time when one may need some chocolate : ). I remembered that had read a cheesecake recipe on the blog from Nicole Stich (delicious days) and as she uses some cream cheese and I wanted to try the new chocolate flavoured cream cheese from Philadelphia I decided to try a chocolate variation from her recipe.
You need:
60 g butter
150 g butter crackers
1 dash vanilla paste
700 g chocolate falvoured cream cheese (i used Philadelphia)
100 g sugar
1 Tsp. Lemongras powder
3 eggs
2 Tbsp flour
1 round 22 cm cake pan 
To prepare:
1. Preheat the oven to 150 C and cover bottom and sides of the cake pan with some parchement paper (first greas your cake pan and then place the parchement paper inside).
2. For the Crust put the crackers in a plastic bag, close and hit on it with a rolling pin (very good for stress reduction : ) . Of course one can also use a food processor) until the crackers are like ground. Mix the crackers with the melted butter and dump into the prepared cake pan. With a Tablespoon press the crackers down and form an even crust (get a little bit higher on the sides, about 2 cm). 
3. For the filling mix together chocolate flavoured cream cheese, sugar, vanilla paste and lemongras powder until smooth. Then add the eggs and the flour.  
4. Pour the cream onto the crust.
5. Bake for about 50 minutes ( the middle might be still a little bit wobbly). Turn off the oven, but leave the cake inside for 1 hour. During this time the chocolate flavour will fill your whole kitchen.... When completely cooled cut in pieces and savour your first piece...
