LOOKING for: Diner Dessert

Last Friday night, my DH treated me to dinner at a diner. My meal included dessert, and I had my choice of anything in the dessert case. WOWEE!!! I chose a delicious cake. It had three layers: brownie on the bottom, then a layer of cheesecake, and the top was chocolate mousse. What a delight! I would like to replicate this at home. But how can I bake the brownie and cheesecake layers? I would imagine the brownie is cooked but not to the point of dryness, then the cheesecake would have to be poured on top and gently cooked at a low heat, folloowed by the mousse uncooked.Then refrigeratwe. Would anyone have any hints or suggestions?

Was there a cheesecake crust between the layers of cake and cheesecake?
My first thought is, they are 3 seperatley baked layers, bake the cake, bake the cheesecake, bake the brownies and layer them together, then chill. Was there a filling in between the layers? Just my thoughts.

No, this dessert has no crusts at all. The bottom was a brownie layer maybe three quarters of an inch, then vanilla cheesecake, then chocolate mousse on top. The whole thing was about two and a half inches high. I particularly liked it because there was no dough or crusts. Just three of my all-time-favorites piled into one.

Jannie, I do something similar and I make each separate. Cut the brownie to fit a springform pan and press it in the bottom. Then do the same with your cheesecake and top it off with the mousse. Refrigerate for a few hours and remove from spring form pan to serve.

Check out this one. You can always top it after it's baked with your favorite chocolate mousse.

Thanks Ginger, your link works perfectly. And it explains exactly how to cook the brownie and the cheesecake layer. I will definitely try it soon. And yes I do have a springform pan.

I saw a cake which sounds identical to that on QVC. They had Juniors Cheesecake Company on selling cheesecakes and they had a chocolate brownie cheesecake with chocolate mousse filling. Looked delicious. It was selling for about $25.00. Juniors is in NYC.

This Chocolate Tuxedo Cake looks really good. I like that the cheesecake layer doesn't need to be baked. Now, I just need to use my imagination for garnishing.

Jannie, If you make the Brownie Bottom Cheesecake would you let us know how it turned out? It sounds great but I wonder about the brownie being cooked that long. Thanks.
