Baileys Chocolate cheesecake..

I'm torn with this one whether its a success or not. Yes it does fill the title description but at the same time it had me slightly hungover, repeatedly bending down to the oven, to check if it was cooked yet (not good for a sore head, too many cocktails the night before!), it took a total of 1hr 40 minutes to bake in my oven, which is fan assisted...and is usually quicker than a normal oven, the recipe states about 1 hour.

The cheesecake itself is relatively straight forward to make, so am tempted to try again...I don't have a hand mixer as stated, just used my electric whisk as was nearest thing to it, I wonder if that made much of a difference as my mixture was very runny going into the tin..

The recipe was adapted from a BBC Good food recipe for KahlĂșa Chocolate Cheesecake, the adaption being that I used Baileys as they had sold out of KahlĂșa, I think it was a little over done in the end as the outer side was more cake like in texture but end result was a very dense, chocolate, calorie laden treat. The topping with creme fraiche and Baileys* in was a nice finish and helped to moisten the cake.


  1. That looks great, Anne. Baking with a hangover is always a little.. unsettling - especially when cooking with booze, so I salute you for a job well done!

  2. Thank you! Hadn't started brownies yet and so I'm switching to this - YUM!


Thanks for stopping by my kitchen! I love to hear your thoughts and comments on my recipes!
