The delights of cheesecake are irresistible. A fluffy and creamy cake is what we all wish for when there is great Patrick’s day celebration at home. This bailey’s crusted delight is more of joy than any other cheesecake as it is layered with a buttery biscuit crust. The mildly sweet batter is prepared out of cream cheese, eggs and sugar while it is flavored with vanilla extracts. The bailey’s cream liqueur is what makes it all Irish and supremely delicious.
I personally love this cake for its easy to make recipe. It is just beat and bake kind of dish which takes hardly few minutes in preparing the batter. The rest is done by your oven. When the cream cheese filling is paired with the crunchy biscuit crust, every single bite of this cake gives a unique blend of flavors.
This basic Irish recipe makes the fluffiest of the cheesecake which is not known by many. The most tempting feature of this cake is its rich nutritional value. The moist and dense, this Irish cheesecake makes a whole dessert meal in itself. It tastes best when served with fresh cream and fruits on top. It is better to refrigerate it for a few hours before serving on the table. One cake can serve as many as 6 to 8 individuals.
