:cake: :cake: :cakeslice: :cakeslice: :choc: :choc:
oooh thanks Suzie.. I love baileys cheesecake but this sounds even better...
This is lovely. I originally got the recipe from the 'bag. It is so yummy! Thanks to AG for posting it! :ellie:
I keep meaning to do this but I just can't bring myself to buy a whole bottle of baileys to do so. (I wouldn't drink Baileys as a rule you see).
Not a massive cheesecake or white choc fan but this recipe sounds delish! Might have to try it out for the sake of the family :)
Oh my god this sounds like my idea of heaven. I will have to make it. Has anyone had the irish liqueuer cheescake from tesco finest that is nice but you cant eat very much of it. Hmmmm I could just eat some AG .....
I'll need to try this, sounds delish - and we have 4 bottles of Baileys in the house :roll: (xmas pressies)
I've made this this afternoon. I've got a bit pished licking the bowl. :oops:
I've got a bit pished licking the bowl. :oops:
PMSL :laff: :laff: :laff: You've inspired me to go and pour myself a baileys & ice :pour:
How easy is it to make? I really like the sound of it but I'm not that confident in the kitchen, is it worth me having a go?
Well I'd never made cheesecake before HH. It wasn't too bad.
I thought it was dead easy. No cooking required, just mix it all up. At one point it does look like it goes wrong - but just keep whisking and it looks ok again.
I put raspberries on top and served it with a raspberry coulis. The comments from my guests were 'That's the nicest pudding I've ever eaten'. So gotta be worth a try. :ellie:
I think I'll give it a try then. I like the sound of best pudding they've ever had, though I won't be sharing it with guests if it's that good ;).
Well, I've just made it. It did look awful at a number of points. I don't have an electic whisk and did it by hand. I tried folding in the creme fraiche etc but it didn't work very well so I used the whisk, otherwise it would've been very lumpy. Will I have ruined it? I'm looking forward to trying it tomorrow :D I can't say I'm looking forward to calculating how many slimming world syns it is though :teehee:
I did it with a hand whisk too, it'll be lovely! Mm, wish I could have some.
dora the ex...
i must make this...where is the recipie?? got it.. !sounds yummy
I've been and had a poke at it in the fridge. The overnight wait to try it is agony!! Thanks for reassuring me Pancake, I was a little worried I'd messed it up. :D
The most difficult bit I found was stirring in the double cream. It all went into weird blobby lumps which needed to be squished. I'm so technical :laff:
Hope it is ok for you HH. :ellie:
Yes, I had that weird blobby thing to with the cream so the whisk came out again.
Well not sure whether this is normal but I removed it from the tin (loose bottom) and was going to have a slice. Yes, for breakfast :oops: I know I'm disgusting! But it hasn't set and the filling squidged everywhere. I managed to get it back in the tin. No mean feat I can tell, you though I did sample plenty of the filling :yes:. Will it ever set or have I :booty: it up with using half fat creme fraiche? I realise I may just be impatient.
My guess would be that it probably wont set if it hasn't already. How long does the recipe say to leave it for? Using half fat could have affected it as the fat helps it to set.
The squidgeyness may enhance the taste :D
I used half fat creme fraiche too. Hmmm. I dunno really. I'm sure it will be yummy anyway, even if it is a bit wobbly.
The recipe says to chill O/N BC so I tend to agree if it's not set now it probably isn't going to.
Oh well, if it hasn't set by the time OH gets home I shall just scoop it out with a spoon. I know it will test yummy even if it isn't how it should be. :D
Just wanted to add that I still havent got round to making this myself, but passed it on to someone else who made it on the weekend and said how delicious it was and their guests said it was the nicest dessert they'd ever had!
Really must try and do it soon!
I made it with full fat cf the first time and half the second and the second didn't set as well.
I've just made this and it looked terrible for a while. Not sure if it'll be ok but I'll find out tomorrow. When I added the Baileys to the chocolate, it just went into a big lumpy mess, didn't go smooth and glossy. Any tips for next time girls?
Just keep mixing!!!!!!!It will go glossy, honest
(this is AG btw, at Pancakes house)
I also think that full fat CF sets better too. :nod:
I agree with the keep mixing bit! :nod: :laff:
I used FF CF. I mixed it with an electric mixer, handed it over to OH to carry on with as my arms were aching. It's quite nice though, just keep coming across some lumpy chocolate/baileys bits.
Hi Moonie, it's me that had the problems with the creme fraiche - my filling never set and I was asking if it was because I'd used half fat rather than full fat. It does seem like that was the problem
I agree on the keep mixing front. It does go through a lumpy phase but should come out the other end. I did find it went a bit lumpy when I tried to fold in the CF so I used the whisk again to get rid of some of the lumps. I hope your cake tasted yummy even with the odd lump :grin:
Yes it is yummy, better luck next time eh!? Practice makes perfect and all that;-)
