Students in our Cooking School in Dublin, Ireland simply adore this luxurious Cheesecake recipe. In fact, it is so good that we make it every St. Paddy’s Day! Vanessa Greenwood, the Founder of Cooks Academy, featured the recipe in her weekly recipe column in The Irish Times newspaper.
Here’s a link to the recipe article in the Irish Times Weekend Magazine
So we wanted to share the recipe in time for St. Patrick’s Day so we made a quick tasty style video to show just how easy it is to make. You can find this video below!

The luxuriousness of the recipe comes from the Baileys Irish Cream liqueur. Of course, in Ireland, we love to sip Baileys in a shot glass with lots of ice cubes, but it gives a lovely flavour in baking too!
If you don’t have Bailey’s, you can always substitute for many of the other cream liqueurs our little island of Ireland is so proud of. Our other favourites are Five Farms, Kerrygold, the Whistler, and Michael’s Irish Creams.
For a touch of Irish luxury, Baileys Cheesecake is a scrumptious dessert. For some, the perfect cheesecake is all about the fluffy filling, for others, it all starts with a perfect, easy to slice, biscuit base. Unlike traditional cakes, avoid over-whisking and adding too much air to the filling (which might lead to cracking).
Digestive biscuits provide an alternative yet classic biscuit base or you can combine them with half and half amaretti biscuits, Oreos or hobnobs. Chopped hazelnuts add a good crunch.
