Non Baked Baileys Cheesecake
Been awhile since I last prepared a non bake kinda cheesecake... I call this type of cheesecake... easy peasy cheesecake lol... so easy and non fussy... so delicious and not too heavy on ur tummy... most important thing is to let it set overnight or for at least 5hrs in ur fridge...
Now this recipe uses Baileys coffee liquor which I dont use... hb said.. once upon a time bef he was known as Shahmeer... he used to drink Irish coffee liquor which is Baileys.. "its creamy, tastes of coffee and smoooth"... when he got home fm work, I told him that i had prepared Baileys cheesecake.. guess what he said with that cheeky smile?? woooahhhh really ah?? muahahah
Well if u wanna use it.. by all means... some ppl use rum essence.. some ppl use kahlua or any other type of liquor.. sooo really... its all up to ur preference... original recipe is fm Stefanie of KC..
1 small pack Malteser candies - crushed
About 12 digestive biscuits - crushed
50g butter - melted (i used 80g)
250g Philadelphia cream cheese - softened
1 tsp vanilla essence
25ml to 30ml Baileys (i ommited)
200ml dairy whipping cream
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup boiling water
1 1/2 tbsp gelatine powder
1 tbsp butter
50g dark chocolate (I used valrhona 70%)
For base.... mix crushed Maltesers and digestive biscuit with melted butter together. Press and smooth evenly in an 8-inch springform pan. Place in a freezer while you get on with the filling... abt half an hour or so...
In boiling water,sprinkle gelatine evenly,leave to "bloom" for 2 minutes. Stir to dissolve. (i mix gelatine and boiling water, stir and micro it for 20 sec on high)
In microwave.. melt butter and chocolate in 30 sec bursts...stir to combine... (i micro it for a minute on high... every 30 sec i wud take it out and stir)
In your mixer or using a whisk ... whip cream till stiff peaks form - chill.
In a mixer (no need to wash after whipping cream) or food processor,cream the cheese and sugar on high speed till smooth,beat in lemon juice and vanilla.
Stir gelatine mixture,(while resting,some gelatine will settle to the bottom...) and beat in to combine.
Fold in whipped cream...remove tin from freezer.
Pour about 1/4 of batter into chocolate mixture,stir to mix....
Mix in Baileys with white batter.
Pour about half of white batter into tin,add half of chocolate batter,swirl to combine.
Add other half of white batter,top with spoonfuls of remaining chocolate batter,swirling to marble patterns.
To serve,run a knife along the sides of the cake,unmould,and slice.
