The photo that popped up when I reposted this was not of the vegan Irish Cream Cheesecake, but trust me, you’ll find the recipe if you follow the link below. And even more important, if you look through the cheesecake recipe, you’ll find the link to the vegan Bailey’s Irish Cream recipes (yes, there are three of them, one for sipping, one for mixing, and one for cooking!).
Having a birthday the same week as Valentine’s Day means that you rake in twice as many gifts. It also means twice the gift-giving stress for the romance-challenged male! But this year, Valentine’s Day was relatively easy on J since I all but picked out the gift myself. The only surprise was the type of animal (a sweet boy goat named Justin) that J sponsored in my name. For my birthday, J did something unbelievably sweet (or totally unimaginative … Read More
I made my cheesecake GF by using Mi-Dell Cinnamon Snaps instead of graham crackers for the crust.
And I think my springform pan is bigger than 9 inches across. I wonder if that could have contributed to some of the baking issues I had, or if that was all altitude. I also added a parchment paper circle to the bottom of the springform pan. I’m not experienced with springform baking, but I seem to recall that a parchment paper circle was somehow important. So I put one in there.
At any rate, I ended up intentionally overcooking my cheesecake because the middle of the topping was still liquid (almost as much as when I poured it on) after the cooking and sitting time were through. I think when I make this again, I’ll just adjust for the altitude immediately and cook it at 400 instead of 375. I’m betting that will take care of the problem.
Here are some photos of my cheesecake and vegan Irish cream.
Three of the four of us liked this fairly well. It lacks that tangy cheesecake taste, and has a little bit of a tofu flavor (just a hint…that’s overridden nicely by the vegan Bailey’s). I like it, though. The texture is quite nice, which was a relief after all of my undercooking/overcooking. We’re sharing a big hunk of this with my husband’s vegan coworker (he’s a single guy, and I like feeding him). We’ve got more left than we can handle, I think, so if you’re interested in trying some and live nearby, let me know. Quickly.
And because I like you so much, here’s the direct link to the vegan Bailey’s recipes.
