Soft Fruit Cheesecake

This delectable cheesecake recipe can be made with either frozen or fresh fruit. But if you are going to use frozen fruit, you will need to thaw the fruit thoroughly before you use it, and don't add the thawed liquid to the mix.

The best fruits are berries, and the best berries are raspberries and strawberries. You can even mix the two together. Blueberries and blackberries, even gooseberries, can also work, but they aren't as sweet and don't always please everyone the same way as strawberries and raspberries do.

Soft Fruit Cheesecake Ingredients

50 g butter
140 g castor sugar
50 g walnuts
100 g digestive biscuits
225 g full fat soft cream cheese
2 large eggs
150 ml plain yogurt
15 g gelatine powder
4 tablespoons warm water
225 g fruit, preferably berries

Method

Even though you won't be cooking this cheesecake, you will still need a 20 to 22 cm cake tin to make it. It should have a removable base so that you can slide the cake out when it has set. Grease the base and sides and then mix the ingredients together.

Start by making the base for the cheesecake. You do this by melting the butter and then stirring in the sugar together with the walnuts which need to be finely chopped. Then stir in the biscuits which should be finely crushed. Press this mixture into the greased tin and set on one side.

Before you go any further, separate the eggs and put the yolks and egg whites in two separate bowls. Now cream the cheese with the sugar and work in the egg yolks and the yogurt. Mix the gelatine with the water so that it melts, and then add to the cheese mixture. Put the fruit into a blender to make a puree, and then add to the mix which should, by now, be smooth and creamy.

Beat the egg whites until they are frothy and firm, and fold into the mixture.

Pour the soft fruit cheesecake mix into the greased cake tin and pop into your refrigerator until it is firm. When you are ready to serve this delicious pudding, you can add a topping of lightly whipped cream together with some whole berries. Undoubtedly it will be a really yummy soft fruit cheesecake.
