Baileys Cheesecake

Baileys Cheesecake Recipe

As tomorrow is Valentines Day, I’m sharing with you a very special recipe that will earn you huge brownie points – Baileys Cheesecake. It’s a really simple recipe to pull together and has a great impact, perfect for a special celebration. You’ll love the silky smooth Baileys taste, and the lightness of the cheesecake – it’s a match made in heaven!

To make your own, you’ll need:

  • 150g digestive biscuits
  • 50g butter
  • 2teaspoons instant coffee
  • 15ml boiling water
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour
  • 400g full fat soft cheese (such as Philadelphia)
  • 150ml double cream
  • 60ml Baileys
  • 150ml sour cream
  • a few squares of milk chocolate for grating

You’ll also need:

  • Measuring scales
  • Mixing bowl
  • Sealable bag
  • Rolling pin
  • 8 inch loose bottomed springform tin
  • Microwavable cup/small saucepan
  • Grater
  • Spoon
  • Greaseproof paper

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Line the base of your cake tin and use a little butter to grease the sides of your tin to avoid your mixture sticking to it
  2. Crush your digestive biscuits in the sealed bag by breaking with the rolling pin to make a crumb
  3. Gently heat your butter to melt this, either on a small pan on the hob or in the microwave in a cup
  4. Add the digestive crumb into a bowl and pour in your melted butter
  5. Mix well then pour out into your cake tin, pressing down the base into the tin so it is smooth and compacted
  6. In a bowl, mix your coffee granules with boiling water and mix
  7. Add your egg yolks, sugar and cornflour and mix well
  8. Add the soft cheese, cream and Baileys to the bowl and beat with a spoon until you have a smooth consistency
  9. Pour on top of your base
  10. Bake in a preheated oven (170 degrees Celsius, Gas Mark 3) for 45-50 minutes. When it is ready, the top will be set but it will wobble when you shake it gently
  11. Leave to cool until warm
  12. Spoon over your sour cream and refrigerate overnight
  13. Grate on your chocolate prior to serving

For a different topping, you could melt the chocolate and drizzle this over the top…you could also draw a little heart or write a little message on the top if you liked?

If you like this, you might also like my recipe for No Bake Chocolate Tart…another Valentines favourite if your true love isn’t a Baileys or Cheesecake fan (although if they’re not…I would question whether they are the right person for you!! What is not to love?!) 🙂
