Berry Baked Cheesecake: There’s nothing like cheesecake

It’s been a tough week and you have friends coming over and looking for a real treat that everybody can enjoy. Cheesecake is one of the most versatile desserts because you can flavour it any way you want to. Today, we present the deliciousness of a Berry Baked Cheesecake with a biscuit crust. You get the soft, perfectly creamy cheesecake filling, topped with tart and sweet berries. This great recipe is perfect for those weekend celebrations and goes very well as the centre of the dessert table.
You can use any berries that you want and you can use them separately or as a combination. We have decided to use strawberries, blueberries and mulberries. They are nice and tart when you’ve cooked them a bit and the addition of honey adds to the sweetness. You can use some lemon juice too in this mixture if you want to. The biscuit crust is crunchy and just goes so perfectly well with the rest of the Berry Baked Cheesecake. Remember to only cover your cheesecake with the berry mixture once it has cooled.
Are you looking for a great dessert that the whole family can enjoy? The humble Berry Baked Cheesecake is a great dessert for your weekend parties.
