Baileys Cheesecake

  • My family loves this Cheesecake, it’s incredible. I really recommend trying this for sure!
  •  Ingredients for a 9-inch cheesecake:
  •  100g/3½oz unsalted butter
  •  250g/8¾oz biscuits (crushed).
  •  450g/1lb Cream cheese such as Philadelphia
  •  1 slug of Baileys Irish cream ( I use 100ml ) 
  •  100ml/3½oz icing sugar
  •  200ml/10½oz double cream
  •  60g/2oz chocolate (dairy or plain, as you prefer)
  •  Gently melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the crushed biscuits and mix until the butter has been absorbed.
  •  Remove from the heat and, while still warm, press the mixture (using the back of a spoon) into the bottom of a lined 23cm/9inch springform or flan tin. Leave to set for one hour in the fridge.
  •  While it is chilling, grate the chocolate. Set aside in the fridge if your kitchen is warm.
  •  In a bowl, whip the cream until it forms soft peaks.
  •  In a separate bowl, beat the cream cheese until it is soft. Beat in the icing sugar and a shot of Baileys. Fold in the whipped cream and three-quarters of the chocolate. When the mixture is smooth, smooth it evenly onto the biscuit base.
  •  Refrigerate and allow to set for at least two hours. 
  •  To serve, sprinkle the remaining grated chocolate over the top for a simple finish, or add some individual chocolates and flakes for a more elegant look.
