Guinness® cheesecake

    1 hour 5 min

    Guinness® 250 years (1759 - 2009) celebration is today in Ireland. The place where I work has made a special Guinness menu for the day. I am a pastry chef, so I decided to make a Guinness® cheesecake.

    1. Combine butter and digestive crumbs. Tip into the tin and using a spoon press an even layer over the base of the tin. Chill tin in the refrigerator.
    2. Put Guinness® and sugar in a saucepan and heat until it looks like caramel; move the pan from the heat to let cool.
    3. Meanwhile put mascarpone cheese and honey in a mixing bowl and mix well. Add lemon juice and whipped cream and mix again.
    4. Put gelatine in the water for 5 minutes until soft. Squeeze out excess water, then place the squeezed out gelatine in a little bowl and melt it in the microwave on high power for about 10 seconds. Add the gelatine to the cheese mixture along with the cooled Guinness® mixture. Beat well. Tip into the prepared tin and chill in the fridge for at least an hour, or until set.

    I never expected this to taste so great...made it and was a real success..had some trouble with the gelatine the first time but figured it just needed to be diluted in some of the mixture first and heated up and then mixes just fine...great recipe...thanx  -  03 Feb 2010
