Disastrous White Russians!

OH no!*sigh* This will be one of those blog entries where everyone gets to witness my baking + kitchen disasters first hand. *sob* there's even a short video clip of my very disappointing baking session for sadistic readers! LOL

Those who have been with me through my cooking adventures for quite some time now; will probably remember a TOga Party we had at our place about a month ago. There were a couple of white Russians at the party; but the best "white Russian" of the night was a DELIcious cocktail our friend shaun stirred up for us! It was a mixture of kahlua, milk and vodka. YUM!
I've been preparing food for our party tonight and I decided to make mini 'white-Russian' cheesecakes! I sneaked in bite from a crumbled cupcake and was amazed at how great it tasted!! If you don't mind crack-ing cupcakes, you're welcomed to try my recipe :).The recipe was my basic cheesecake recipe and;
Add:
1/2 cup of kahlua
1 1/2 tbsps Absolut Vanilia
50 gms melted white chocolate
2 tsp sifted cocoa powder

Divide the batter into 3 different bowls and add kahlua to one, white chocolate and vodka to the second and cocoa powder in the third. Layer the different flavours as you desire, I guess a marbled effect will work as well....
The taste and texture of these little gems were well worth the cracking!! It's probably one of the best cheesecake flavour combinations I've ever had .

Cute video, Suyin. Of course, I'm biased in favour of anything that has music from Grease! I think that the cakes still look fantastic.

I've used your bullseye cheesecake recipe as a base twice thus far and they've been delicious both times!

I always use cupcake liners, however. Do you grease the pans to prevent the cakes from sticking without liners? If so, what do you use?

Thanks a bunch for all your amazing recipes and photos :)

thats great kristy! ...I actually have never greased my pans for cheesecakes... I have non stick muffin tins and I wiggle them out off the sides a little before popping them off. it usually works well for me that way.
