To make a good cheesecake you just need an idea and some time.
My cheesecake ready to serve

This is a recipe I made up for my birthday. I decided I wanted an Oreo biscuit base with a basic lemon cheesecake filling and topped with blueberries.

Preparation Time: 40 minutes
Cooking Time: overnight
Serves: 6-8

For the base
220 g unsalted butter melted
325 g of Oreo biscuit crumbs (about 4 packets of Oreo's)

For the filling
450 g cream cheese softened
395 g can of sweetened condensed milk
3 teaspoons gelatine dissolved in 60 mls boiling water
80 ml lemon juice
2 tablespoons lemon rind

For the topping
2 125 g punnets of blueberries
2 tablespoons of corn flour
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
100 g of castor sugar

  • To begin, add some of the biscuits into a ziplock bag and seal removing any air. Roll over the bag with a rolling pin to crush the biscuits. When biscuits are completely crushed pour them into a large mixing bowl.
  • Continue to crush biscuits and transfer to the mixing bowl until all done.
  • Next add in the melted butter and mix well with a wooden spoon until all well combined.
  • Pour the biscuit crumbs into your flan/quiche pan and spread out to the sides and up the edges if you desire.
  • Press the crumbs down firmly with your hands, making sure all areas are covered and there are no gaps.

  • Press the biscuit crumbs into the base making sure there are no gaps

  • Place the base into the fridge for half an hour or into the freezer until set (about 15 minutes) if you are short on time.
  • To make the filling add the softened cream cheese, condensed milk, lemon juice and lemon rind into a large mixing bowl, and mix with an electric mixer until all combined and smooth.
  • To make the gelatin, add the boiling water to a mug and add in the gelatin powder and mix well with a whisk. Never add the water to the gelatin powder. Once the gelatin has all dissolved, pour the liquid into the cream cheese mixture and fold through until well combined.
  • Pour the mixture over the base and place back into the fridge to set for at least 3 hours before you add the topping.

  • Pour the filling over the base and place in the fridge to set

  • While the cheesecake filling is setting prepare the topping.
  • Add the blueberries, lemon juice, sugar and cornflour into a small saucepan.

  • Add all topping ingredients to a small saucepan and stir continuously

  • Mix ingredients well and then heat on a low to medium heat until sugar dissolves and the mixture starts to thicken slightly.
  • Take the mixture off the heat and transfer to a bowl and place in the fridge to cool for about 30 minutes to an hour.
  • To finish the cheesecake pour the blueberries over the cream cheese filling, and spread out evenly over the filling.
  • Place the cheesecake back into the fridge to set overnight before serving.

  • Slice and enjoy
