Boozy Irish Cheesecake
Baileys Cheesecake with Jameson Caramel and Baileys Ganache
Recipe adapted from Sweet Pea's Kitchen and Richard at Baking Arts
It's St. Patrick's Day! And nothing celebrates this holiday better than Baileys and Jameson. I have had the idea for this cheesecake for over a year now. I attempted to make it for last St. Patrick's Day, but I was also heading to Disneyland so I didn't have enough time to mess with it and my first shot at it was a disaster. So this year, I gave it another go and, man, it is AMAZING!
This is pretty much the first good cheesecake I have made and I am super proud of it! It is a chocolate graham cracker crust with a chocolate Baileys Irish Cream cake, drizzled with both Baileys ganache and Jameson caramel. It's super rich, but the perfect thing to celebrate your St. Patty's Day!
Sorry for a short post, but I wanted to get the recipe up in time to celebrate!
Note: This cheesecake takes a long time to make. You may want to bake the cake the night before and finish layering the caramel and ganache the next day.
[ INGREDIENTS ]
1 ½ cups crushed chocolate cookies (I used the organic teddy graham cookies from Whole Foods)
1 ½ cup granulated sugar, divided
4 ½ tablespoons butter, melted
24 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cups cocoa powder
3 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup Baileys Irish Cream
1/2 cup sour cream at room temperature
Boiling water (for the water bath)
2/3 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 ounces unsalted butter
1 ¼ ounces of Jameson Whiskey
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons Baileys Irish Cream
[ DIRECTIONS ]
Put it all together
This cake looks so classy and of course, delicious! I am a type of person who loves sweets and that includes none other than chocolates! You know what, to be honest; one of the reasons why I do love this is because you have taken a really good shot of the cake. The pictures that you have posted here have made the cake look more delicious and really good in the eyes. I can't wait to let my sister see the recipe and procedure on how to do this cake. She is actually a baker and I know she will love to make this for us.

If I will be given the chance to bake a cake, I will definitely choose this one. I don't know but just by looking at this, I already knew that this is what we describe as heaven on earth. I do like how this cake looks different and more special than the usual chocolate cakes that I usually see. This is even the first time that I have craved for a cake because I am not really into desserts. So basically, this is the first time that this happened to me. I am so thankful because I have discovered this tonight
