Taste Bailey’s Cheesecake

A cheesecake with Irish whiskey liqueur!

The Bailey’s recipe is so successful that Bailey’s Cheesecake has become a kind of national dessert, popular with a large number of Irish people!

Fine and delicious, it is a clever blend of fresh cheese (mascarpone), butter and Bayley’s Irish Cream, all served on a gourmet shortbread. The result is rather rich and a bit caloric, but the whole will deliver a rather fine and airy cake!

You can easily find them in most local Irish restaurants and pubs. Count less than 5€ a share… with the risk of getting a taste and asking for more!

Generally, this cheesecake is served on big family occasions (birthdays, anniversaries, parties, family meals) or on St. Patrick’s Day. Accompanied by a good coffee or irish breakfast tea, this cake is a marvel!
