As far as I remember, this was the second cheesecake I’d ever made. And from the very beginning I was lucky to choose one of the best cheesecake recipes : )
The cake is heavy and wet with a subtle taste of hazelnut flavour (in fact, during the first making of the cake, the taste was subtle… while preparing it for the second time, I decided not be that stingy when it came to adding alcohol ;P)
Not sure how it works for you but these are my flavours – nuts, chocolate, liqueur and… cheese : )
Oh, and even The Firm Defender of Traditional Cheesecakes tucked in, which really made me happy : )

Holy Sh..eese! It’s sooo yummy!
An amazing cheesecake which definitely deserves to be placed in my personal Top 3 Cheesecake Contest.
From what I’ve noticed, a lot of people claim that the taste of alcohol in the cake is way too heavy… I would say it’s just fine. You can feel it, that’s for sure but if it’s too much… naaah ;D The liqueur gives a nice flavour to the cake but it doesn’t kill its “cheeseness” : )
It is quite heavy and wet comparing to other cheesecakes so those in favour of tradition may not love it.
Still, the facts speak for themselves – the cake needed only one Sunday evening to disappear : )
Good that I found it at Moje Wypieki and checked it out because now it’s one of my favourites : )
