Cheesecake with blueberry topping

Cheesecake with blueberry topping
Recipe adapted from +ByronTalbott 

*I'm using a mini springform pan so double up the ingredients if you are making a bigger portion.



1/2 cup Digestive Biscuit
55g unsalted butter
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 pinch of salt

[Cheesecake Filings]

115g cream cheese
55g sour cream 
1/2 cup sugar (You can put a little lesser if you don't want it to be too sweet)
1 whole eggs
1 tbsp vanilla extract/ vanilla essence/ vanilla bean paste
1 tsp lemon zest (grated)

[Toppings] - Optional
Frozen Blueberries

Mini Springform Pan
Mixing Bowl
Small Rectangular Pan 
Aluminium foil
Food processor
Weighing Scale



1. Put the digestive biscuit into a food processor to form the crust. 

2. In a mixing bowl, put the digestive biscuit, butter, salt and brown sugar, and mixed it all well. Once the texture looks like wet sand, it's ready to go into the springform cake pan. 
*I would recommend you guys to get a springform pan as it can save you from all lots of trouble.

3. Brush the springform pan with some butter to make sure it won't stick on the bottom or sides.

4. Start lining your pan with the digestive biscuits and press them well against the pan. 
*You can just put the crust on the bottom its fine. I love the crust so I have added them along the side as well. It really depends on how you like them.

5. Put them in the fridge for 10mins for it to set.

[Cheesecake Filings]

1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius. 

2. In a mixing bowl, put the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, vanilla extract and the grated lemon zest; whisk it well until the sugar dissolve.

3. Crack 1 egg into the mixture and continue whisking for another 2-3mins.

4. Take the crust out from the fridge and pour the cheesecake mixture into the pan.

5. Place the springform pan onto a small rectangular pan, pour boiling water into the rectangular pan and cover it with aluminium foil so there will not be any coloration on the cheesecake.

6. Place them into the oven to bake for an hour.

7. Once it's ready, remove the aluminium foil and rectangular pan, let the cheesecake rest in it's springform pan for about 45mins, and put it into the fridge for another 1-2hours.

 8. When it's ready, remove the cheesecake from the springform pan. Top the cheesecake with some delicious frozen blueberries (or another other fruits you like) and it's ready to serve.
