I have been wondering what to add as my new post for this week. I have been a bit behind this month as there were so many things going on and this week is winter break for us so I thought I may not even be able to do any new post at all.

Thankfully, I have quite a few recipes in draft form that I can pull out in emergency cases although some of them are just that – recipes and no accompanying photos.

Looking beyond my 2015 drafts I noticed this post hidden near the bottom and I couldn’t believe I haven’t posted this cheesecake recipe though I have made this over a year ago and actually took some photos of it!

I remember making this one summer for our friends and kept a slice for us (see photo below) to eat for later.

At any rate, I am so delighted to find this post as that means that I have at least one delicious offer for our dear readers this week (who knows, perhaps another one for later?).

And, I sure hope you try this cake which is hubby’s ultimate favorite….or was it the one with raspberry??? He sure loves them all, after all it’s cheesecake.

NOTES on Ingredients for No Bake White Chocolate Blueberry Cheesecake

 For the crust (Gluten-Free Option)

    • ground Almonds (you may ground the almonds yourself or buy it pre-ground)
    • finely shredded dried Coconut (don’t omit unless you’re allergic as it add extra layer of flavor and texture)
    • packet of Pecans or Walnuts, crushed (optional but for extra crunch it’s great!)
    • Sugar (adjust to taste).
    • Butter (regular or unsalted is both fine)


For the crust (Regular)

    • Shortbread Cookies (may be replaced with graham crackers or digestive biscuits)
    • Pecans/walnuts (optional)
    • Sugar
    • Butter


For the No Bake Cheesecake

    • good quality White Chocolate (it has to be the kind of chocolate you want to eat – do not use baking ones, if possible)
    • Butter
    • Cream Cheese – (make sure it’s softened before using cheesecake won’t end up lumpy) 
    • Caster or super-fine white Sugar
    • Heavy (double or whipping) Cream
    • Vanilla Extract

For the Lemon Blueberry Topping

    • Blueberries – (fresh or frozen blueberries may be used so you can make this any season!)
    •  Zest of 1 lemon plus juice of 1/2 a lemon
    • Sugar – (adjust to taste)

Instructions

  1. To make the crust, combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix until evenly moistened. Press the crumb mixture into a 9-inch springform pan using the smooth bottom of a glass. Refrigerate the crust while you are making the filling. For easier removal, line the springform pan with cut-up parchment paper before adding the crumbs.
  2. In a heat-proof bowl over barely simmering water, melt the chocolate and butter. Stir occasionally until smooth. Let it cool for a couple of minutes afterward.
  3. While the butter and chocolate are slowly melting, prepare the other ingredients. In a separate bowl or in the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together the softened cream cheese, heavy cream and sugar until it has a smooth consistency, roughly 3-4 minutes. Pour in the vanilla extract. Mix just until it’s fully blended in.
  4. Stir the cooled chocolate mixture into the cream mixture until smooth. Pour the mixture onto the prepared tin. Refrigerate until fully set. This can be made 2 days ahead. Before serving, drizzle some lemon blueberry sauce.
  5. To make the lemon blueberry sauce, add all the ingredients in a small saucepan and simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes or until the fruit begins to break down slightly and the sauce has thickened to your liking. Leave to cool before spreading on cheesecake. Enjoy!

    Sometimes answers come when we don't even know we have a question. Blueberries and Chocolate together in one cheesecake, that is a tasty answer! 🙂

    I made this with the gluten free crust and it was so delicious! Only things I would have changed is add more white chocolate and no walnuts in the crust. But seriously, this is a very good recipe.

    • July 14, 2016 / 6:53 pm

      I love your comment! Someone noted before that there's too much chocolate – this recipe calls for 1 pound of chocolate and I love that you want to add more! You go Tiffany, you are a girl after my own heart – there can never be too much chocolate, right? So glad you enjoyed it! Thanks!!!
