Blueberry cheesecake

Light and creamy blueberry cheesecake and a nice, delicious summer dessert. Its vibrant and fantastic colour comes from the wild blueberries. Nestled on top of a crumbly biscuit base and topped with vanilla-soured cream reminds me of ‘London Cheesecake’ by Nigella Lawson. It steals the show at dinner parties!

Ingredients for the base:

  • 150 g digestive biscuits
  • 50 g butter, melted

Process the biscuits in a food processor until they resemble fine breadcrumbs. Add the butter and process until well combined (you can also put the digestive biscuits in a plastic bag, crush them to crumbs using a rolling pin, and then mix with melted butter).

Line the bottom of a 23 cm springform pan with parchment paper. Press the biscuit mixture evenly into the bottom of the springform pan. Put the tin in the fridge to set for 30 minutes.

Ingredients for the cheesecake filling:

  • 750 g curd cheese, minced three times
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 220 g caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp plain flour
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 250 g wild blueberries, blended and passed through a sieve

All ingredients should be at room temperature.

Place all the ingredients in a large bowl and beat until just combined. Pour the cheesecake filling into the chilled base and bake at 150ºC for about 60 – 75 minutes or until set in the centre. Remove from oven and spread the topping over the hot cheesecake. Return to oven to bake for 10 minutes. Cool in the oven with the door slightly ajar. Refrigerate overnight.

Decorate before serving.


  • 250 ml soured cream or crème fraîche
  • 2 Tbsp icing sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Combine the soured cream, sugar, and vanilla extract in a small bowl.
