Baked Blueberry Cheesecake


This week on The Great British Bake Off is Dessert week. We've made a Baked Blueberry Cheesecake here at AT HQ. This dessert is quick to make but takes a while in the oven. It can be made in advance as it tastes better chilled we think. The topping can get a little messy at the end so it's best to use a glass worktop saver for easier cleaning up.


You'll Need...
125g digestive biscuits
125g gingernuts
90g butter
550g cream cheese
125g caster sugar
2 tsp lemons juice
seeds from 1 vanilla pod
200g crème fraiche
100g Natural yogurt
3 eggs

For the topping...
2 punnets of blueberries
2 tsp cornflour
3 tbsp water
50g caster sugar

To Make...
Crush the biscuits.
Melt the butter and stir into the biscuits crumbs.
Press the mixture into a 20cm loose bottomed cake in.
Beat the cheese, sugar, lemon and seeds together.
Mix in crème fraiche, yogurt and eggs until smooth.
Pour filling over the base, smooth the top.
Bake at 160oC for 50mins or until it is set
Leave to cool completely.
Meanwhile mix the topping ingredients together in a saucepan and Heat gently until the sugar dissolves and the sauce thickens.
Leave to cool, then spoon over the cheesecake. (Can get very messy!)
Put in the fridge to set overnight.
