    2. Beat cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla paste, 1 minute, spd 4. Stop once halfway and scrape down sides. Turn the speed down to 3 & add the melted chocolate slowly through the hole in the lid (should take at least 30 seconds.

    4. Keeping the blades running, add one egg at a time, letting each one beat in before adding the next, then the same with the yolks.

    5. Add sour cream & flour, mix in for 15 seconds, Counter-clockwise operation speed 2, using the spatula to help incorporate. Add nuts, and mix in for 10 seconds, Counter-clockwise operation sp 2, using the spatula to help incorporate. Pour mixture over cheesecake base and smooth the surface. Bake for 50-60 minutes. The centre will be slightly wobbly still when ready. Turn off the oven, leaving the door slightly ajar, and leave the cheesecake until it is completely cool. Cover, and refridgerate (do not try to remove from tin at this stage, it needs to be cold to get it out cleanly.
