Nothing says summer like lashings of cream and beautiful berries and this berry cheesecake recipe is full to the brim with both! If like us your small humans with forever rumbling tummies rule your roost (& your kitchen!) then this is sure to go down a storm with them and trust us it won’t be a hardship for you to eat either.
Everyone deserves a sweet treat from time to time, even our small humans! On a sunny summer Sunday we took to our local farm for a spot of family fruit picking. They worked super hard filling their little punnets with blueberries and raspberries in the knowledge that this would lead to good things….
On a sweet tooth mission our petite Fores get their hands dirty! Here we share a berry cheesecake recipe – one of family Fore’s top treats! Many hands make light work – not so hot on the cleaning up though!
Berry Cheesecake Recipe
Time 30 minutes to make – 8 hours to set
Makes one large cheesecake
- 1 punnet of raspberries
- 150 grams of butter
- 1 punnet of blueberries
- 100 grams of icing sugar
- 300 grams of crushed biscuits (we used gluten free chocolate cookies)
- 1 pot of double cream
- 3 pots of cream cheese
How to make your berry cheesecake:
Firstly, wash the fruit thoroughly and set aside.
Secondly. place your biscuits into a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin. Melt your butter and mix together with the biscuits then spread out evenly across the base of your cake tin. Place in the fridge whilst you get on with the topping.
In a separate bowl mix together your cream and cream cheese until smooth then add the sieved icing sugar.
Next, add the fruit and mix together and add this to the top of the biscuit base. Lastly, place back in the fridge for 8 hours. (If you’re feeling extra naughty put it in the fridge to set overnight so you can eat berry cheesecake for breakfast!)
