Not really satisfied with the result as the surface cracked although the bain-marie was applied, and the chocolate batter was not enough. Nevertheless, it tastes super!

|Marzipan Biscuit Crust||Cheese Filling|
- Combine together all the ingredients for the crust. Chill for 30 minutes. Take out the dough from the fridge and press into the bottom and sides of a 26-cm springform pan lined with baking paper. Return it to the fridge and let rest for another 30 minutes.
- Combine together matcha tea powder and hot water in a bowl. Melt chocolate over a hot-water bath. Preheat the oven to 175C/350F. Place cream cheese, yogurt, and two thirds of sugar in a bowl set over a hot water bath. Stir until sugar dissolved and all the ingredients are well-blended. Add in egg yolks, vanilla extract and heavy cream. Mix well. Whip the egg whites and the rest of sugar until soft peak forms. Fold into the cheese mixture. Combine one fourth of the plain cheese mixture with melted chocolate, and another one fourth with matcha. So now you have 2 portions of plain cheese mixture, one chocolate-flavoured cheese, and one matcha-flavoured cheese mixture.
- Pour plain, chocolate and matcha cheese batters alternatively over the center of the biscuit crust in the pan. With a tip of toothpick you slide across the surface to create stripes or swirl the whole mixture with a table knife until it resembles a marbled effect.
- Pour the cake pan on a large baking tray and pour some hot tap water to half way up the outside of the tin to form a bain-marie. Bake for 40 minutes. Turn the oven down to 150C and bake for a further 30 minutes. Turn the oven off and leave the cake in for 30 minutes. Remove the cake from the oven and cool completely. Chill the cake overnight.
