Baileys Cheesecake from Sunrise Senior Living

Sunrise Senior Living are care homes that specialise in dementia care. I have previously written why dementia is a subject that is close to my families heart. If you did not see it you can read why in my Dementia Friends post. So when Sunrise Senior Care got in touch and asked me to try one of their recipes I could not refuse!

Sunrise have published some deliciously tasty and nutritious recipes that are not just great for the elderly but for the whole family.

I decided to try out their Baileys Cheesecake recipe.

This is how I got on...

This cheesecake was amazing!

I will admit to never baking a cheesecake before, I normally go for the easy non bake ones, but this dessert was so creamy, light and really was simple to make. The hints of Bailey's that come through the smooth creamy topping made this dessert simply heaven on a plate! From now on I will definitely be making more baked cheesecakes.

Disclosure: I was sent the recipe and received a fee to cover the costs of the ingredients. All views and opinions are my own and 100% honest.
