Recipe: Raspberry Cheesecake

 This week has been very strange. My parents had to go away for a night so I had to play mum and look after my younger brother and sister. 

Everything is back to normal now but I just feel a little 'out of sync'. January is generally a weird month for me..I guess it takes me a while to get back into the flow of normal..whatever that is?
-----------------------


I haven't had a lot to blog about so I thought i'd share this recipe with you...








I made a gorgeous Cheesecake for boxing day dessert at Christmas. It has a really light texture with bursts of raspberry and then a yummy biscuit base..so good! My nan usually doesn't like Cheesecake but she was converted when she tried this.

I found the recipe here . People who reviewed it said they used other fruits like blueberries or strawberries instead and it worked perfectly. I prefer Raspberries...


 Ingredients

* 8 digestive biscuits
* 50g butter, melted
* 600g cream cheese
* 2 tbsp plain / all purpose flour
* 175g caster sugar
* Vanilla extract
* 2 eggs, plus 1 yolk
* 142ml pot soured cream
* 150g raspberries
*icing sugar to dust
* 20cm springform tin






Method


Pre-heat  the oven to 180C/ 350f /gas 4. Crush 8 biscuits. I put them in a plastic bag and crushed with a rolling pin.

Mix with the melted butter and press into a  tin and bake for 5 minutes, then cool. Mix the cream cheese with the flour, caster sugar, a few drops of vanilla extract, 2 eggs and yolk and the soured cream. Then stir in the raspberries and pour into the tin.

Bake for 40 minutes and check for a slightly wobbly centre. Turn the oven off and open to door, leaving the cheesecake to cool in the oven.

You can dust icing sugar over the top or serve it with a raspberry coulis.




This would be great to serve as a BBQ dessert on those hot summer days which are yet to come. They seem so far off but I bet once Easter is here time will fly by!

  1. Hiya,

    Thank you for the comments on my blog :) I was so excited to read them :)

    That recipe looks yummy :) I love cheesecake but my husband isn't really a fan so if I baked one I'd HAVE to eat it all myself!!

    Little F is MUCH better today :) He's still not quite right but he's not as unsettled so that's good :)

    Take care,
