Ingredients

Scale

For the crust:

  • 8.1 oz Digestive biscuits
  • 2.8 oz melted butter

For the filling:

  • 31.7 oz cream cheese
  • 12.7 oz granulated sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

Lemon zest

  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • For the mixed berry sauce:
  • 10.6 oz mixed berries (strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, whatever you like)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Juice of ½ lemon

Instructions

  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (180°C). Crush the Digestive biscuits into fine crumbs and combine with the melted butter. Press this mixture firmly into the bottom of a 9-inch pan, creating an even layer.
  2. Bake the crust for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven and allow to cool while you prepare the filling.

Making the Filling:

  1. In a mixer, combine the cream cheese and granulated sugar, beating until smooth. Add the eggs one at a time, ensuring each is fully incorporated before adding the next.
  2. Mix in the heavy cream, vanilla extract, and lemon zest, blending until smooth. Finally, sift in the all-purpose flour and mix until just combined.
  3. Pour this filling over your cooled crust, smoothing the top with a spatula. To avoid moisture from the water bath seeping in, wrap the bottom of the pan with aluminum foil.
  4. Place the cheesecake pan inside a larger pan and fill the outer pan with hot water. Bake at 300°F (150°C) for about 1 hour, or until the top is golden and the center is just set.
  5. Remove from the oven and let cool to room temperature. Then, chill in the refrigerator, covered, for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Crafting the Mixed Berry Sauce:

  1. Combine the mixed berries, sugar, and lemon juice in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir occasionally, allowing the mixture to simmer and reduce until it thickens into a jam-like consistency.
  2. Once cooled, the sauce can be spread over the chilled cheesecake or served on the side for guests to add as they please.

Serving and Storage Tips

Serving:

For the ultimate presentation, allow the cheesecake to chill thoroughly before serving. This not only ensures it sets properly but also makes slicing smoother. Drizzle the mixed berry sauce generously over the top, allowing some to cascade down the sides for an enticing look. For an added touch of elegance, garnish with fresh berries and a mint leaf just before serving. Serve the cheesecake slices on individual plates with extra sauce on the side for those who desire a bit more of the fruity goodness.

Storage:

This cheesecake, along with its berry sauce, can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Ensure the cheesecake is covered with plastic wrap or stored in an airtight container to maintain its freshness and prevent it from absorbing other flavors from the refrigerator. If you find yourself with leftovers, the cheesecake freezes beautifully. Wrap individual slices in plastic wrap followed by aluminum foil and freeze for up to 2 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before serving to enjoy the cheesecake as if it was freshly made.

Conclusion

Crafting the perfect Cheesecake with Homemade Mixed Berry Sauce is more than just following a recipe; it’s about creating moments of joy and indulgence. With each bite, experience the creamy texture of the cheesecake harmoniously paired with the tangy and sweet berry sauce. This recipe not only promises a dessert that’s a feast for the taste buds but also a delightful journey in making it.
