1 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

melted chocolate with the cream cheese mixture and beat the mixture
until it is smooth, about 1 minute.

4. Pour the filling into the prepared crust. Cover with the cake pan lid.

5. Set the wire rack in the cooker. Pour 2 cups of warm water into the
pot of the cooker. Optional: add few drops of vanilla extract to the
water to infuse cake with vanilla flavor. Place the pan on the rack
in the cooker.
