Sweet Melissa Sunday, Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake

28 comments
I've never really been that keen on cheesecake, something about it just never appealed to me. With this in mind I was planning on giving this week a miss but in a fit of utter boredom I threw caution to the wind and decided to give it a shot. Unfortunately, and not down to a lack of searching, I simply couldn't find course cornmeal, if I'm honest I'm not even sure I know what it is. So, my cheesecake is made with a plain digestive crust and rather than making the blueberry sauce I decided to bake them right into the cake. Another obstacle I hit was my lack of a Bain Marie, in other words my roasting pan isn't big enough so I reduced the cooking time by 30 minutes and just stuck it in the oven. I actually prefer the look of a baked cheesecake to those done in a Bain Marie, it's those delightfully golden sides that do it for me.



The result was absolutely delicious and has totally changed my previous opinion on the humble cheesecake. I'll defiantly be baking this one again, trying different fruits according to the season.

Please, don't forge to check the SMS blogroll for more fabulous cheesecake and if you want to give this one a try the recipe is over at Elianas A Chica Bakes.

  12. What a beautiful cheesecake! I think you are right about the bain marie - it makes the cheesecakes look rather bland. Yippee! Another great blog from across the Pond.

  16. Hi Katie!

    How are you? Thanks so much for stopping by my site and saying hello- hearing from you was a lovely way to start my day :) Your cheesecake came out awesome! Great idea to incorporate the blueberries right into the cake... when I first read the recipe title, that's actually what I pictured, but then I realized that the blueberries were only in the topping. I'm glad you decided to participate, and great job on your cake!

    Can't wait to talk to you again after next week's post. Have a fabulous week!

    -Joy

  26. It looks great with the blueberries in it! Cheesecake isn't on the top of my dessert list either, but this one was better than your average cheesecake.

  27. I also love the look of this cheesecake, it's glorious. However I am completely appalled at the fact you've only warmed to cheesecake now. Had you not have liked it, I would have had to come to your house and eat it all whilst you watched.

    Damn, I lost out, didn't it?

  28. That looks brilliant! I've never had much luck with baked cheesecakes.
