Instructions
Cake
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Line 9 inch springform pan with a circle of parchment paper.
  3. Grease sides.
  4. Beat butter and sugar until fluffy.
  5. Add sour cream and vanilla.
  6. Add egg whites.
  7. Combine flour and baking powder in a bowl and add half.
  8. Add the milk and water.
  9. Add the rest of the dry ingredients.
  10. Pour in pan and bake 18-20 minutes.
  11. Cool.
Cheesecake Layer
  1. Beat cream cheese, sugar and flour.
  2. Add the sour cream and vanilla.
  3. Add eggs, one at a time and beat well.
  4. Lower the oven to 300.
  5. Remove the springform pan sides, clean them and dry them. Grease sides and reattach to the pan.
  6. Make the chocolate layer by heating the cream and pouring it over the chocolate. Let sit and then whisk smooth. Add vanilla and let cool a bit. Pour it over the cake trying to keep it from the edges and mostly in center and around. Let sit a couple minutes.
  7. Carefully pour on the cheesecake batter on top of the chocolate.
  8. Place pan in a cheesecake moat and fill outer edges with water. (If you don't have a moat, place it in a larger pan, wrap the outside very well with foil and add water halfway up the sides.)
  9. Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes. The center should be set, but still jiggly.
  10. Turn off the oven and leave the door closed for 30 minutes.
  11. Crack the door of the oven open for 30 minutes.
  12. Remove from water bath and chill overnight.

Pastry Cream
  1. Put egg yolks in a medium sized bowl and beat them.
  2. Add sugar, cornstarch and milk to a large saucepan and mix until smooth.
  3. Cook, while stirring, over medium-high until it thickens.
  4. Lower heat and simmer 2 minutes.
  5. Remove heat and add a little bit of milk mixture to the egg yolks. Whisk together.
  6. Then add the egg mix to the milk so the eggs do not cook.
  7. Bring back to a low boil for 2 minutes.
  8. Off the heat, add butter and vanilla.
  9. Stir smooth, then cover closely with plastic wrap and chill until cold.
