Cheesecake with Berry Sauce
Total TimePrep: 1 hour Bake: 50 min. + chilling
This cheesecake is absolutely delicious! I overbeat and overcooked the first one I made, and it was STILL good! I used mixed berries for the topping and added some whole blueberries in after processing. Plus - I will NEVER buy whipped cream again! I had no idea how amazing it was homemade!
awesome cheesecake. the eggs made it extra light. Upon first removing it from the oven, i tried it and it had a very odd texture, like a souffle, but the secret was refrigerating it overnight at which time it returned to the traditional cheese cake texture. I made a blueberry compote, however, instead of the berry sauce. I always have frozen blueberries in freezer from the summer and i think it makes a much better presentation along with taste. the cheesecake is not sweet and needs the extra berry sauce on top. I also had to bake mine for 1 1/2 hrs. I used a 9 inch springform pan so maybe that is why it took longer. the directions called for a 10 inch pan. I also took some out of the pan and put it in a small pyrex dish to bake as it came up to nearly the top of the pan!
This is delicious. I made it a day ahead and it was great but even better the next day. I served it with elderberry syrup. I'm going to freeze a piece and see how it makes out. Everyone loved it. Janet. VFE
Quick question: Would this work with fresh berries as well? I've made the cheesecake many times, and it is DIVINE!
New favorite cheesecake recipe! Great served with fresh strawberries as well.
Absolutely delicious - the raspberry sauce was easy and mouth watering.
An idea for junetennant: I've had great luck freezing cheesecake. Wrap pieces individually and place in a freezer bag. Another idea would be to make the whole cake and share the excess with your neighbors. They'll love you!
I have not tried this yet, as I just barely got it in my email box, but I fully intend to. You piqued my curiosity right off when you said you shipped it in dry ice. Where can I buy dry ice? I have a son and three sisters out of state, so I would like to copy your recipe and shipping method. By the way, the cheesecake sounds great to eat at home too! Thanks!
Too bad it is for so many servings. Looks hard to scale down to 4.
