We’ve made many sweet treats with Bailey’s and for good reason. It’s so tasty! After you make this, take a look at the Chocolate Bailey’s Poke Cake, Bailey’s Truffles and Bailey’s Chocolate Mint Cookies. You can’t go wrong with any of them!

Baileys Cheesecake

I may only have a smidge of Irish in my blood, but I still love celebrating the St. Patrick’s Day holiday. Mostly because it’s in March and I know Spring is almost here, and in part because of all the yummy food we make. An Irish Cream Cheesecake certainly tops that list. Grab your ingredients and let’s bake!

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • Chocolate Graham Crackers
  • Butter
  • Bailey’s Irish Cream
  • Cream Cheese
  • Sugar
  • Cornstarch
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla
  • Instant Coffee
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Heavy Whipping Cream

Baileys Cheesecake Recipe

To start, make the crust by mixing melted butter and graham cracker crumbs. Press the ingredients into a parchment paper lined springform pan. Place it in the freezer to set while you make the cheesecake mixture.

Beat the cream cheese, sugar and cornstarch together. Add in the eggs one at a time. Then, slowly beat in the Bailey’s and vanilla.

Pour that mixture over the crust and bake in your Instant Pot for 40 minutes. Once the timer goes
off, allow it to natural release for 20 minutes. Then, once cooled, let it sit in the fridge overnight.

Oven Directions: You will use a larger springform pan (9 inches) compared to the instant pot and basically double the ingredients (as we list in the recipe box below).

Chocolate Ganache

When your cheesecake is ready, make the ganache to top it off.

All you need to do is heat the heavy whipping cream in a saucepan until steaming. Then it pour over the chocolate chips.

Let it sit for a minute to begin to cool and pour over the top of the cheesecake and smooth evenly.

Do I Need To Use A Springform Pan?

When it comes to cheesecakes, a springform pan makes life much easier. The reason is because this type of pan has removable sides. When your cake is cooled you can easily remove it from the pan without damaging the cake.

How To Prevent An Instant Pot Cheesecake From Cracking

Here are two tips to help prevent your cheesecake from cracking.

  • Make sure the eggs and cream cheese are always at room temperature before mixing.
  • Grease the pan so that the cheesecake is able to pull away from the sides and keep the top from cracking.
