This amazing Baked Raspberry Cheesecake is sure to impress your friends and family.
Hey I'm Grace! I'm one of Vanya's sisters and I love baking. She's asked me to contribute some of my favourite recipes to the website which is so exciting.
I'm a qualified chef and have worked in kitchens in New Zealand and overseas. I have even had my own dessert caravan which was super fun, I hope you enjoy my recipes!
Gosh, there's something so decadent about a baked cheesecake. Because of how epic they are, I love to share this dessert with friends and family. This recipe for my Baked Raspberry Cheesecake is sure to impress your guests.
The base is made from plain crushed biscuits. I like to use Vanilla Wines but by all means use your favourite. Super Wines, Maries, Arrowroots etc will all work.
How to make this Cheesecake:
To begin, preheat the oven to 150°C fan bake. Line a 23 cm cake tin with baking paper. Blitz the biscuits in a food processor until fine.
Mix in the melted butter and lemon zest then press into a lined cake tin with the back of a spoon. Refrigerate.
Beat the cream cheese and sugar together then mix in the the cream, lemon juice and vanilla. Add the eggs one at a time and mix well.
Pour the mixture on top of the base in the tin, then gently stir in the raspberries.
Bake for 1 hour. At this point the cheesecake will still have a wobble in the centre. Turn off and cool in the oven with the door ajar.
Refrigerate until cold before cutting.
To make the coulis, add all of the ingredients to a saucepan and bring to a simmer for a few minutes, then whisk. Chill in the fridge.
Serve with whipped cream or greek yoghurt and top with raspberry coulis.
And if you love creamy, berry desserts, you can't go past my Ambrosia - a great Christmas Pudding!
Common questions and tips for baked cheesecake:
How do I know when the cheesecake is ready? The cheesecake will have a nice golden colour to it when it is ready. It will still be a little wobbly but will firm up in the oven as it rests and in the fridge as it cools.
Can I make this the day before? Yes! The cheesecake needs to be completely cooled before cutting so I would recommend making this the day before you eat it and allowing it to cool in the fridge overnight.
- The best tin to make cheesecake in is a round, springform tin. This makes it easy to get out.
- When lining a tin for cheesecake you really need the sides covered. Start by placing a piece of baking paper across the base, then put the sides on and lock the clip. Next, line the edge with two pieces so that they overlap.
