Bailey's cheesecake

One of the best cheesecakes on the blog, chocolate base and chocolate ganache, with delicious baked Bailey's cheesecake. Perfect for those long winter nights.

for the base:

150g bourbon biscuits
55g melted butter

for the cheesecake:
700g cream cheese
1 cup bailey's
5 eggs
1/4 cup icing sugar
1tbsp corn flour

for the ganache:

100ml double cream
100g dark or milk chocolate

To make the base place the biscuits in a food processor, or crush with a rolling pin. Add melted butter and mix. Tip the mixture into a lined 20cm baking tin and place in the fridge to set for about half an hour.

To make the cheese mixture mix cream cheese with icing sugar and corn flour, add Bailey's and eggs, one at a time. Pour the mixture over the base and bake in a pre-heated oven at 170C for 45-60 minutes.

Take out the oven and leave to cool.

To make the ganache, heat double cream then add chopped chocolate. Leave for a minute or two, then stir. Pour over the cheesecake and leave to chill for at least 6 hours.
