This recipe for the Guinness chocolate cheesecake is a pretty basic chocolate cheesecake recipe with the addition of the Guinness but the similarities stop there. The addition of the Guinness changes the texture and properties of the cheesecake making it more souffle like. Normally you can tell when a cheesecake is done by shaking it a bit and if only the center wiggles it is done but the entire surface of this cheesecake will wiggle the whole time, even after 2 hours of baking. You pretty much just have to trust the recipe and the results are certainly worth it!
The Guinness chocolate cheesecake is a moist one as might be expected with all of the extra liquid provided by the Guinness but it is also nice and light and creamy. This cheesecake has a texture that seems to be like a cross between a souffle and fudge and it is simply amazing! The Guinness flavor is very subtle but it seems to enhance the overall chocolate flavor which is quite welcome. In all honesty, this cheese cake does not need any garnishes but feel free to top it with some Bailey's whipped cream if you like.

I'd rather buy this, unless of course I got to drink Guinness while making it. Maybe I'm just captivated by the nice photography because there's always a chance it tastes terrible. Nevertheless, click the link for the full recipe and let me know how it goes. If it tastes good drop some of it by, OK?
