Cheesecake Factory 30th Anniversary Chocolate Cake Cheesecake

Cheesecake Factory’s 30th Anniversary Chocolate Cake Cheesecake was a limited edition cheesecake released in 2008 commemorating the restaurant’s 1978 beginning in Beverly Hills.[1] Created from a melding of two Cheesecake Factory cakes, the Cheesecake Factory 30th Anniversary Chocolate Cake Cheesecake recipe includes components of the Original Cheesecake and chocolate fudge cake.

To construct this cheesecake, a base layer of chocolate fudge cake is topped with a layer of cheesecake, followed by another chocolate cake layer and another cheesecake layer. Chocolate cream between the layers and on top of the cake adds to the chocolate flavor. Shaved chocolate around the outer edge completes the cake.[2]

Cheesecake Factory History

Cheesecake Factory Founder Dave Overton shares the story of how Cheesecake Factory got its start with his mother's signature recipe.


  • Try cooking the cheesecake in a shallow pan or cookie sheet filled with no more than a half inch of water to regulate humidity in the oven while it bakes.[8]
  • Alternate mini white chocolate and milk chocolate chips in place of the shaved chocolate for a different flavor.
  • For a lighter cheesecake, consider substituting some of the cream cheese with ricotta.[9]
