The Sweet Life

There’s no better way to celebrate mom than giving her something sweet on Mother’s Day. We recommend donning your apron and whipping up a delicious cheesecake. Be sure to leave enough time for the cheesecake to properly set, so consider making it the day before or start early on Mother’s Day morning.

Instructions
  1. Crush the oat biscuits with a rolling pin and mix thoroughly with the melted butter to make your base mixture.
  2. Press the mixture firmly into the base of a 7-inch cake tin with 3-inch high sides.
  3. Pre-bake for 20 minutes at 400°F, then remove from the oven to cool. Reduce the oven temperature to 300°F.
  4. Start the top layer by melting the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water.
  5. Take care not to let the bowl touch the water and don't overheat the chocolate as it will separate.
  6. Spoon the mascarpone and fromage frais into a large bowl and whisk until smooth.
  7. Add the eggs and sugar and whisk again before adding the melted chocolate and Baileys.
  8. Pour the mixture into the tin, smoothing it with the back of a spoon and bake in the centre of the oven for 1 1/4 hours.
  9. After that, turn the oven off but leave the cheesecake inside until completely cold to prevent cracking.
  10. Finally, sprinkle the surface of the cheesecake with chocolate curls or shavings.
  11. To make them, melt the remaining chocolate as before and spread on a smooth flat surface to form a 6-inch circle and chill in the fridge for 45 minutes.
  12. Drag a cheese slicer or sharp knife across the surface of the chocolate to form curls or shavings.
  13. Sprinkle with cocoa powder (optional).
Recipe Notes

*Substitute with local quark or equal parts cottage cheese and plain yogurt, mixed until smooth.

Note: There is the equivalent of 0.1 fl oz of Baileys per serving.
