Delectable blueberry cheesecake…..for me there isn’t a more satisfying dessert than a sumptuous slice of cheesecake. My whole family loves cheesecake so I have made different varieties through the years – from no bake, to plain, white chocolate, dark chocolate, with green tea, one with nutella, etc – you name it.

While I haven’t totally exhausted all kinds of cheesecake – we are always willing to try something new.

But of course, one should always make the classic blueberry cheesecake so when I saw some juicy blueberries on sale I bought a pack so I could finally make this cake.

I love the cheesecake itself because of its simplicity. Apart from the crust, it only has 4 ingredients – no frills – just plain delicious creamy cheesy goodness!

That’s the plain cheesecake, it’s so good that you can have it on its own without any topping.

But of course, for extra flavor and deliciousness, I highly recommended this sumptuous blueberry sauce to be drizzled on top!

Doesn’t it look luscious? It’s totally scrumptious!

Ingredients for Yummy Blueberry Cheesecake

NOTE: For the full recipe with instructions and for printing, see the recipe card below. Just scroll down.

For the crust

Graham crackers or digestive biscuits (hubby prefers the English digestive)
pecans or walnuts (optional)
sugar (just to add a little sweetness to the crust)
unsalted Butter

For the Cheesecake

Cream Cheese (use good quality cheesecake and make sure to allow them to soften and reach room temperature before using)
Eggs (room temperature)
Vanilla Extract

For the sauce/topping

Blueberries (fresh or frozen)
Zest of 1 lemon plus juice of 1/2 lemon

The cheesecake may sink slightly during baking and may even crack but don’t worry as that’s perfectly fine because by doing so it creates an area on top  of the cake where you could spoon the blueberry sauce!

Yummy Blueberry Cheesecake

Delicious and creamy blueberry cheesecake with a luscious sweet-tangy sauce that brings this dessert over the top. Fresh or frozen blueberries can be used so it's an all-season dessert. So yummy!

Course Dessert
Cuisine American, English
Keyword best blueberry cheesecake ever, blueberry cheesecake no sour cream, blueberry sauce for cheesecake topping, easy blueberry sauce, the best blueberry cheesecake, yummy blueberry cheesecake
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes


For the crust

  • cups finely crushed graham crackers, about 18 Graham Cracker Squares or about 10 digestive biscuits
  • 3/4 cup crushed walnuts or pecans, about one (2.5-3 oz) packet of pecans or walnuts
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 6 tbsp unsalted Butter, melted

For the cheesecake

  • 3 packs of (8-ounce block) cream cheese, softened (room temperature)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the blueberry sauce/topping

  • ¾ cup water
  • 1 pint plus 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 2-3 tbsp sugar, or to taste (I like it sweet-tangy)
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • juice of half a lemon


For the crust

  1. To make the crust, combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix until evenly moistened. Press the crumb mixture into a greased 9-inch springform pan using the smooth bottom of a glass. Set aside.

For the cheesecake

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 F. Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese in medium speed until soft, creamy, and completely smooth (no lumps). Add the sugar slowly and continue to beat until the mixture is smooth. Add the eggs one at a time beating well after each addition. Pour in the vanilla extract and beat again until just until it’s mixed. Occasionally scrape the sides of the mixing bowl to ensure that there are no lumps remaining on the side or at the bottom.

  2. Pour the cheesecake batter onto the prepared springform pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 50-55 minutes. The cake may brown on the edges and may even crack in the middle but that’s perfectly fine. If you don’t like the appearance of cracks, try to bake the cheesecake using a water bath. I don’t worry much about this as the cheesecake would be covered on top with the sauce anyway. Besides, the browning, sinking or cracking won’t affect the cheesecake’s taste one bit. When done, transfer the cake to a rack and cool completely. Refrigerate. The cake can be done two days ahead.

For the blueberry sauce/topping

  1. To make the sauce, in a small saucepan add all the ingredients and simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes or until the fruit begins to break down and the sauce has thickened slightly. Leave to cool before spreading on cheesecake.

  2. To serve, transfer the cheesecake to a serving platter. Spoon the blueberry sauce onto each slice of cake. Enjoy thoroughly.

Recipe Notes

This is best made a day ahead. Drizzle with blueberry sauce when you serve the cake.

    I love cheesecake and have made many kinds, but plain is still my favorite. adding fruit is great too – this looks SO good!

  2. September 17, 2015 / 2:14 am

    Since I absolutely adore blueberries and dream of cheesecake daily..this is probably the most perfect dessert I could ask for!!!

  3. September 17, 2015 / 3:23 am

    What a gorgeously delicious looking cheesecake! I love the addition of pecans into the crust and how the ingredients list is kept simple… yum!

  4. September 17, 2015 / 5:38 am

    Ahh this is gorgeous!! I have an affinity for cheesecake so this is totally getting pinned for later 😀


  5. September 17, 2015 / 11:19 am

    Let me start off by saying I am one of those weirdos who likes to make cheesecakes and this one looks out of this world!! That blueberry topping!! Cannot wait to give this a try!

  6. September 17, 2015 / 4:10 pm

    Yummy indeed — WOW! This cheesecake looks so delicious with that beautiful blueberry compote on top! Pinned. 🙂

  7. September 17, 2015 / 5:36 pm

    This cheesecake looks so good!! I haven't made a cheesecake…ever! Can you believe it? This really needs to change!

  8. September 18, 2015 / 12:08 am

    Your Blueberry cheesecake looks amazing, definitely something I would love to make.

  9. September 18, 2015 / 1:06 am

    Ooooh cheesecake is my all time fave dessert! Love the blueberry topping. Gotta make this before Summer is over!

  10. September 18, 2015 / 1:08 am

    I'm not usually a huge fan of fruit topping on cheesecake but man, those blueberries are pretty enticing!

  11. September 18, 2015 / 11:39 pm

    We love blueberry cheesecake in our family. I just want to eat it this minute! Gorgeous photos!

  12. September 19, 2015 / 1:44 am

    Oh, my gosh! I love, love cheesecake in the first place, but topped with all those lusicous blueberries make this one a showstopper!!!

  13. September 19, 2015 / 6:07 pm

    This is truly amazing looking, nicely done!! I want an extra big slice!!

  14. September 20, 2015 / 4:34 am

    I need a piece of this right now! I think I will be adding this to my Thanksgiving menu!

  15. September 20, 2015 / 3:17 pm

    This is some seriously luscious blueberry cheesecake. AHHHH! Love it. Pinning!

    Oh my, this is a gorgeous cheesecake. One worthy of a dinner party.

  17. September 20, 2015 / 7:35 pm

    This cake looks amazingly shiny!

  18. September 21, 2015 / 2:38 pm

    Look at all those blueberries. I love blueberries, and I can convince myself it is a healthy dessert choice as it has fruit 🙂

  19. November 29, 2015 / 8:28 am

    Could you please tell how did you do the empty space which filled by blueberry, as when you bake it and get it out of the oven it will be one level. did you empty some of its surface?

    • November 29, 2015 / 8:43 pm

      It naturally sinks as it cools down and creates that space above. 🙂

    • November 30, 2015 / 7:22 am

      thanks, i made it following your steps, it is very yummy. it needs 180 degrees C in my oven, i posted pics on my instagram maherabuzer

  20. January 10, 2016 / 2:33 am

    This was great! I substituted Labneh for the cream cheese to make it healthier and it went perfectly with the blueberries 🙂 Making it again tonight except using raspberry topping and adding lemon juice/zest to the base.

    • January 10, 2016 / 2:58 am

      Glad you enjoyed it and thanks for letting us know! I haven't tried Labneh and now I am intrigued and will check it out soon! Thanks!

  21. January 31, 2016 / 3:56 am

    This is a super hit recipe….each time comes out so well. Thanks a lot 🙂

  22. January 31, 2016 / 2:02 pm

    I cannot wait for fresh blueberry season to put this one together, Abby. In the mean time, I'm considering printing out one of these mouthwatering photos of this cheesecake and pinning it up on my bedroom wall; please don't judge me!

  23. January 31, 2016 / 11:45 pm

    The blueberries on this cheesecake look incredible! My son loves cheesecake.

    Made this last week and it was like velvet. so smooth and creamy. the best baked cheesecake recipe I've ever tried. making it again today and twisting it a bit by making it a cookies and cream cheesecake. choice biscuit base with crushed oreos through the batter. fingers crossed it works out just as delicious. i have no doubt that it will 🙂

    • February 25, 2016 / 9:28 pm

      I am so glad to know you enjoyed it!!! We really love this cheesecake! Thank you for letting us know!

  25. September 22, 2016 / 11:41 pm

    First time making cheesecake and it turned out perfect. Took me about 15-20 minutes for sauce to reduce, maybe because I had to use frozen berries? Sauce was a bit tart for me so I added a little sugar about a tablespoon…still tart but that's fine with me.

    Very easy recipe and definitely a keeper. Will make again.

    • September 23, 2016 / 2:20 am

      I am so delighted you enjoyed this cake! Such a favorite. I do like the sauce kind of sweet-tart to cut the richness of the cake, but I am glad you tweaked it to your liking. Appreciate you stopping by! 🙂

  26. December 1, 2016 / 2:09 am

    This cake is a work of art! It's just beautiful and looks delicious!

    I just made this cheesecake for Thanksgiving. It came out perfectly and is collapsing in the center like yours. It smells heavenly and I can’t wait to try it tomorrow. I will post a picture of it before cutting. Thank you for this easy recipe, I’m so excited about our cheesecake!

    How did your cheesecake sides rizen so high, it looks great.

    • abigail
      March 13, 2018 / 8:18 pm

      It just happens that way if you follow the instructions on the recipe. The middle sinks giving way to higher sides which makes it perfect for adding topping.

        I’ve made this cheesecake many times but I’m wondering, can I add peanut butter to the recipe for a peanut butter cheesecake?

        • abigail
          July 29, 2020 / 8:42 pm

          You can replace the blueberries with peanut butter for sure. Not sure about combining both. Thanks, and enjoy. Glad you love the cheesecake.

  29. December 15, 2018 / 9:49 am

    I never have been able to make a tasty cheesecake. This recipe is simply the best tasting and easiest to make. I love this recipe and I know you will too.

    I love you only have four ingredients for the cheesecake, simplicity is good. I know have blueberry bushes so all of the blueberry recipes will come in handy so I can use the fresh berries. The cheesecake is amazing.

    This has been my go-to cheesecake to make for the last few years. It’s so easy to make and is delicious. Everyone at work requests this whenever there’s a birthday. I just change out the topping based on the taste of the recipient. I even have one in the oven right now. Thank you for the recipe!
