I stumbled upon this recipe a while ago and have been making it ever since and everytime it turns out perfect . it is a wonderful cheesecake very light and airy in texture and above all very easy to make .


  • 450 gm cream cheese (room temperature)

  • 200 ml double cream

  • 110 gm caster sugar

  • 1 tsp lemon juice

  • 1/2 tsp vannilla essence

  • 1/2 cup melted butter

  • 10 digestive biscuits

  • fresh blueberries

  • icing sugar for dusting


  • 1.

    Crush the digestives into fine crumbs (use a food processor )

  • 2.

    Heat the butter ina large pan on low flame . Add the digestives and stir continuously until the crubs have absorbed the butter and you can a smell a nice roasted aroma .

  • 3.

    Remove from the heat and press down into a 10" or 9" inch loose base cake tin (spring form pan).Smooth over by using the base of a glass . Put in the freezer to cool .

  • 4.

    In a clean dry bowl whip the double cream until it forms soft peaks . Dont over whip ( it is all in the whipping ).

  • 5.

    In another bowl gently soften the cream cheese using a wooden spoon and add the lemon juice , vanilla and sugar .

  • 6.

    Next fold in the double cream . mix well .

  • 7.

    Pour the filling into the prepared cake tin . Arrange th blueberries on top and sprinkle with the icing sugar .

  • 8.

    Allow to set in the fridge for at least 2 hours . Serve with ice ceam, creme fraiche or additional fresh berries .


If you dont have fresh blueberries you can use blueberry jam , that too works very well but while using jam omit icing sugar and you can even add any berries you like . You can use any variety of cream cheese but i feel philadelphia cream cheese is the best .
