I had my first disaster of the season this week (unless you include my total non-attendance last week, in which case it is my second.)
I’ve never made any of the puddings on the list so it was all new to me.
I intended to make a Baileys and Dark Chocolate Baked Cheesecake and I did follow an official Baileys recipe…
However I ended up with a chocolate tart rather than a cheesecake – it is very solid and dense and needs a sharp knife to get through it.
I over baked the base so that doesn’t taste great (edging on burned to me) and the top is a bit sharp and bitter. Probably from the dark chocolate – I don’t like dark chocolate very much.
It isn’t inedible and it is better when consumed with ice cream. The kids hate it.
I won’t be making it again – I’d rather just drink Baileys and eat chocolate I think!
The Great Bloggers Bake Off 2015 is being hosted by the lovely Jenny at Mummy Mishaps and if you hop over there you can take a look at all the other super tasty entries in the linky.

funnily enough Carole another bake off blogger followed an official Baileys recipe for creme burly and had issues – so it might be their fault this was not as nice as you had hoped for. it does look lovely and sounds like it should be lovely with those ingredients, at least it didn’t crack xx
thanks for linking up
How strange! Ah well – it’s not disgusting so it wasn’t a total fail 😉
It looks tasty still to me and lovely flavours! how strange that Baileys recipes aren’t working properly, they must need new bloggers to work with 🙂
Hahaha, they clearly do!
Chocolate is never inedible! It looks very impressive in any case, pass it off as a chocolate tart and give yourself a pat on the back 🙂
