First Booze Cake Pic - Margarita Cheesecake

So I'm in love with the book "Booze Cakes" by Kristina Castella and Terry Long

It should be wrong to love a cookbook this much but I LOVE to bake. I don't know why. Maybe because it's soothing and 9 times out of 10, even if you screw up you can still have something sweet to eat at the end. I like that baking can be adaptable yet there must be certain absolutes. I suppose that if I had to sum myself up in a few words I'd say; "I'm like a recipe. Willing to adapt, am different in every situation but I will always need salt, baking powder and flour to work".

Anyway, this recipe is "Top-Shelf Margarita Cheesecake" as with every recipe I've adapted it a bit. Tweaked it where I didn't like a lot of an ingredient and so forth but pretty much kept to the laid out plans (all I really did was reduce the amount of lime zest because that shit just bugs me).

I'd give you the recipe but something tells me that you should just by or take the book out from the library. Trust me. If you like booze and you like cake, there isn't much that can go wrong here :)

Pics of the cheesecake before it becomes a full cheesecake:

Proof that I actually made this, because no one in their right mind would just randomly crack eggs for this purpose. You can also see my toaster oven, spice rack, flour on the counter and wine. And the beer.

The beer.
The batter.

Tomorrow you'll get the goods ;)
