Steven Segal Cheese Cake

I remember winning in a quiz in a spot prize a video of Steven Segal in Exit Wounds. The Tagline said Steven Segal "kicks it up a notch". So in honour of that great line I have decided to dedicate my new cheese cake to the man him self. So I give you Steven Segal Cheese Cake.

It is a Chocolate, Orange and Rum Cheese Cake with a Baileys Chocolate Brownie Base.

First things first the base. In essence it is the Murphys Brownie Recipe. Now that recipe makes to much for the cheese cake which you make in a 8 inch cake tin. So you can reduce the recipe by 1/3 rd. Or as I did. Just make brownies with the left overs after you have filled the cake tin to a significant level. For details of how to make it please check it out on Ice Cream Ireland.

This is what you need for the base.

250 grams Chocolate (55% cocoa content)

165 grams butter — at room temperature

3/4 tablespoons Coconut.

300 grams sugar

135 grams flour

3 each egg

100 mls of Baileys

Now for the moose. You need.

400g Philadelphia Cream Cheese

1 pack of Orange jelly.

150g of Dark Chocolate.

3 capfulls of Dark Rum ( I used Captain Morgan)

150 ml Double Cream

100mls of Squeezed (NOT CONCENTRATE) Orange Juice.

Dissolve the jelly in a mug of boiling water. Melt the chocolate in a bowl that is resting over a saucepan of boiling water. Once melted add the cream, Orange Juice, jelly and the Philadelphia to a blender and add the chocolate. Blend this. Then add the 3 cap fulls of rum. Blend this altogether. Once done pour into the cake tin on top of the base. And allow about 3 hours to set. (the longer the better). Easy peasy lemon squezey.

To top this off if you really want to be fancy you could serve it on a coloured plate with some white chocolate sauce.
