Ginger Nut Cheesecake with a Berry Sauce

Ginger Nut Cheesecake with a Berry Sauce

Posted 2018-04-15 by Red Solacefollow
This is a variation of a basic strawberry cheesecake recipe that I've made over the years. Thought I'd try it with a ginger nut base and different berries and it tastes delicious.



Preparation Time: 1 hour, plus overnight chilling
Serves: 8-10

Ingredients
For the base
250g ginger nut biscuits
100g unsalted butter

For the filling
600g cream cheese
100g icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
280ml double cream

For the sauce
120g blueberries
120g raspberries
30g Icing sugar
150ml water

Method
  • Grease a 25cm loose-bottomed or spring form cake tin.
  • Place the biscuits in a plastic food bag and crush using a rolling pin. Transfer the crumbs to a bowl.
  • Melt the butter in a small pan then pour over the biscuits. Mix well.
  • Put the biscuit mixture into the cake tin pressing down with the back of a spoon to create an even layer. Allow to set in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.



  • Whisk together the cream cheese and icing sugar until smooth.
  • Add the vanilla and double cream and continue to whisk until the mixture thickens.
  • Spread the mixture on top of the ginger nut base and smooth out.
  • Leave to set in the refrigerator overnight.



  • Pour the water into a small pan and add the majority of blueberries and raspberries, keeping a small amount aside for decoration.



  • Using a potato masher, mash the berries as much as possible.
  • Simmer, then gradually stir in the icing sugar. Continue to stir occasionally for 10 minutes.
  • Using a sieve, strain into a bowl. Use the back of a spoon to press as much juice through the sieve as possible.



  • Leave to cool then pop into the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  • Cut a slice of cheesecake and pour the sauce over it.
  • Decorate with berries.
