Baked Vanilla Cheesecake Recipe🍰

This was my first time to ever make a baked cheesecake and my family were delighted when I served them this slice of heaven after dinner today.

ingredients

  • 150 g Caster Sugar
  • 3 large Eggs
  • 1 Lemon Zest
  • 300 ml SuperValu Sour Cream
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 150 g SuperValu Rich Tea Biscuits
  • 85g Butter
  • 280 g Cream Cheese X 3
  • 1 portion Raspberry Coulis
  • 1 portion Fresh Berries

method

  • Remove the cream cheese and sour cream from the fridge a couple of hours before you begin. Preheat the oven to 160°C/gas mark 3. Line the base of a 23cm spring-form tin with non-stick baking paper.
  • To make the base, blend the biscuits in a food processor or crush them finely in a ziplock bag with a rolling pin. Mix with the melted butter, then press firmly into the base of the lined tin and refrigerate for 10 minutes. 
  • Using an electric whisk, blend the cream cheese and caster sugar until smooth.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well each time, then the sour cream, finely grated lemon zest and vanilla until everything is just mixed, being careful not to overbeat.
  • Pour the mixture over the biscuit base, then place the tin on a baking tray and bake for 50 to 60 minutes. The filling should be set but with a little wobble in the centre. Turn the oven off and use a wooden spoon to keep the oven door ajar to allow the temperature to drop slowly. Leave the cake in the oven for several hours, until completely cold, to avoid cracks appearing on the surface. 
  • Run the blade of a knife around the edge of the tin to loosen the cheesecake before releasing the catch. This will also help avoid cracks. 
  • Refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 6 hours or preferably overnight to firm up the texture. Serve with fresh berries and raspberry coulis. I also dusted the cheesecake with icing sugar.

Baileys Irish Cheesecake Recipe🥨🍿

My granny turns 89 this week so I decided to make a Baileys Cheesecake, as Baileys is her favourite drink (I don’t blame her). This cheesecake should be stored in the fridge💚

ingredients

  • 300g Digestive Biscuits
  • 150g Butter or Margarine (melted)
  • 75ml Baileys Original Irish Cream
  • 500g Mascarpone
  • 340g Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • 60g Caster sugar
  • 175ml Double Cream
  • Popcorn,Salted Pretzels and Caramel (or Butterscotch) sauce

method

  • Line a 20cm loose-bottomed tin with greaseproof paper.
  • Put the digestive biscuits in a plastic food bag and crush them all to crumbs using a rolling pin.
  • Transfer the crumbs to a bowl, then pour over the melted butter.
  • Mix the melted butter and crumbs thoroughly until crumbs are completely coated. Tip them into a prepared tin and press firmly down into the base to create an even layer. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour to set firmly.
  • Beat the mascarpone cream cheese, sugar and Baileys with an electric whisk or balloon whisk until smooth.
  • Spread over the cake and chill for at least 2 hours. Spend at least some of this time licking the spoon.
  • Whip the cream, dollop on top of the cake and spread it around.
  • Decorate with popcorn and pretzels and drizzle over the caramel (or butterscotch) sauce
