Cherry Cheesecake

To finish up the cherries at home, here’s another cherry bake. HB likes it as he is a great fan of alcoholic cakes. But as I do not have cherry brandy, I have replaced it with Grand Marnier instead. It turns out to be equally fine. Recommended for those who loves alcoholic bakes.
