The Ultimate Irish Temptation by 


My beautiful Bailey’s Cheesecake with Vanilla ice cream and dark chocolate shavings.
Recipe for Irish Bailey’s Cheescake.
Ingredients for a 9-inch cheesecake:
100g/3½oz unsalted butter
250g/8¾oz biscuits such as Digestives, Hobnobs, Oaties. Crushed.
450g/1lb Cream cheese such as Philadelphia
1 slug of Baileys Irish cream
100ml/3½oz icing sugar
200ml/10½oz double cream
60g/2oz chocolate (dairy or plain, as you prefer)
Method:
Gently melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the crushed biscuits and mix until the butter has been absorbed. Remove from the heat.
While it’s 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.
Refridgerate and allow to set for at least two hours. If you can bear to leave it overnight, so much the better.
To serve, remove from the tin and decorate. You can either sprinkle the remaining grated chocolate over the top for a simple finish, or add some individual chocolates and flakes for a more elegant and ceremonial dressing.

Very very low in calories.

    Ok… Many thoughts just raced to my mind……. And not necessarily in that order……. How did you know that I LOVE LOVE LOVE cheesecake?……. Then, how the heck did you know that I would KILL for an Irish Baileys cheesecake????…. One of my all time favorite liqueurs and the one that made fall in love with the Irish many, many years ago……. Then my dear, dear Joyce…… You’re killing me here with your sweetness…… Well… I almost killed myself last night with a serious injury that required me an over night in the emergency department at the local hospital…….. But that’s another story……….. So, unfortunately I’m going to be fairly incapacitated for a few days depending on how I behave….but knowing me, I don’t……. And that is another story…… now back to your “sweetness”……… It is Lent…… And I am supposed to abstain from various things…… And here is temptation looking me straight in the mouth…. I mean the eyes……. How strong can I be?…. And then……. What about my girly figure which I’m trying to maintain?.. You know what I mean……. Baileys…… Sugar……. Baileys……. Fat…….. Baileys……. Cream….. Baileys….. Chocolate…….. Baileys……. Cheese……. Baileys……. Butter…… Baileys…….. You know….. Did I say I LOVE LOVE LOVE cheesecake?…… And my last thought…… It’s never fun to indulge alone……. Would you like to join me in this perfection? I’ll buy dinner……and drinks……. And flowers…….. Can I tempt you with one more piece?….. From your cant stop drooling friend……….. Hany

  • Oh my dear Hany…………..are you OK?…………..what happened to you?…………….please don’t tell me you tripped over your tripod while photographing from the top of the Petronas Towers or something equally mad…………………..I should not laugh and I am not……………….I am concerned about my lovely friend who is so far away from a hug and an ‘It will be ok’ from me………………if I could send you a 9" Bailey’s Cheesecake to ease your pain I would…………..but you know that, don’t you……………..I eat this and I am a size 12 so you don’t have to get fat……………….mind you by American Celebrity measurements I am probably obese………………………I am trying to make you laugh…………..you can still laugh I hope……………when you come to Ireland I will make this cheesecake and we can eat the entire thing together……………don’t you just love the dark Peruvian chocolate shavings on the top…………………I am so delighted to hear from you……………please take extra care and be good……………….or if you can’t be good, be really good……………….your very concerned about her lovely Hany friend ………PS………go and look at the flag of Mercury if you have not already done that……………..you might get a laugh……………I hope…………….well I laughed and I put it up…………………….is self praise a recommendation……………….I think so……………..hugs from across the divide and the divine Bailey’s Cheesecake…………………..Joyce!!
