Babycham Cheesecake

As promised, I had a go at making a cheesecake type pudding to serve in the Babycham glasses. I discovered Babycham for sale in Asda at £2.35 for 4 small bottles.

You will need:
1 small bottle of Babycham
Juice and zest of 1 lemon
2 x 200g Extra Light Philadelphia soft cheese
300ml whipping cream
2 dessertspoons caster sugar
A few plain digestive biscuits - crushed

Whip the cream in a large bowl until it is stiff. Whip in the sugar, lemon juice, zest and cream cheese.

Add the Babycham a drop at a time until you have the consistency you want - we added too much and it went a bit runny.

Pour into glasses and serve on its own, or with crushed biscuits on the bottom or top,
and always with a cherry and umbrella!
It tastes like a cross between cheesecake and syllabub. You can add any kind of flavouring to this cheesecake - rum and lime is very nice!! And you could also sprinkle a crushed flake on top too.

Sounds delicious. I do remember feeling very grown up in the 50s when we ordered Babychams!

Now that looks good - but I have to say that rum and lime with a chocolate flake would do me very nicely thank you:)

Very yummy looking desserts -- but Rowan mentioned chocolate flakes and now I can't get past the thoughts of a "99". Do they still make them I wonder. I will now have to visit the English Store downtown and buy some flakes -- I'm an addict.

I didn't know you can still buy it, I think I'll have to indulge because I don't think I've ever tried it. Love the look and sound of your dessert, did you start with avocado and prawns followed by gammon and pineapple?

Happy weekend x

Haven't had a Babycham for years! Must look out for some and see if I still like it.

I suppose you could use any sparkling white wine, although Babycham is a perry, isn't it, made from pears rather than grapes and is very sweet indeed. And you could use crushed ginger biscuits, too, perhaps to cut through the sweetness? Just a thought! But I love the umbrellas, where on earth do you buy those these days?

Hi
Just to let you know that I intend making this tonight as a treat for me and my hubby. I had to buy a pack of four Babychams which I will be forced to drink Ha Ha.
I found your site via Rojer Bunting who featured my wool stall. If you fancy a look at my blog it is www.needlecraftcorner.blogspot.com
Many thanks for the recipe. I will let you know how it goes.
Regards
