Eggless Blueberry and White Chocolate Baked Cheesecake

Eggless Blueberry and White Chocolate Baked Cheesecake

Blueberries are just coming into season here in the UK so when I spotted a stack of boxes containing the little blue jewels I knew I had to have some. Berries remind me of everything summery and cheesecake is one of my favourite desserts. Eggless baked cheesecake is a rare and delicious treat, which I only make once in a while. I’ve been using Kurma Dasa’s wonderful recipe for years and the finished product is always breathtakingly yummy. As a child I used to read my mum’s copies of Great Vegetarian Dishes, Cooking with Kurma and Quick Vegetarian Dishes like they were storybooks; of course, admiring the stunning pictures was the most captivating and exciting part. As I grew older I was able to cook and sample the vast array of dishes showcased in these most treasured books, and the original version of this eggless baked cheesecake was one of the best I had ever tasted. Since then, I have been experimenting with the countless flavour combinations that there are. Blueberry and white chocolate? Win.

I love how the berries burst in the oven and stain the pristine white of the soft cheese a shade of striking deep purple. Beautiful.

Blueberry and White Chocolate Baked Cheesecake
Adapted from Kurma Dasa’s Great Vegetarian Dishes
(Serves 10-12)


For the base:

1/4 cup butter, melted
2 ½ cups digestive biscuits, crushed

For the filling:

500g ricotta cheese
500g cream cheese, at room temperature
1 ½ cups granulated sugar
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 tbsp cornflour
1 1/3 cups double cream
1 ½ tsps vanilla extract
½ cup white chocolate, melted
1 cup blueberries, dusted with a little plain flour

Method for the base:

1. Combine the crushed digestive biscuits with the melted butter and mix thoroughly.

2. Firmly press the mixture into a greased 10 inch springform tin.

Method for the filling:

1. Beat together all of the ingredients (excluding the blueberries) until it has thickened. Kurma suggests not to overmix this.

2. Pour ¾ of the mixture on top of the crust and scatter on the blueberries. Pour the rest of the cheese mixture over the blueberries. This method protects the blueberries from burning in the oven and the flour they are dusted in will stop them from sinking to the bottom of the cheesecake during cooking.

3. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 1 ¼ hours until set (I left mine for 1 hour because my fan oven cooks things a little quicker).

4. Allow to cool and refrigerate for at least 8 hours.

5. Cut into (extra) large wedges and serve to your nearest and dearest yourself.

P.S. I’ve also frozen this cheesecake whole and it still tastes great when defrosted (although the base may lose some of its crunch) but you can always make it ahead of time.

[…] I originally decided to make this Raw Fig Cheesecake by Oh, Ladycakes, but sadly last week I didn’t get around to do all the prep and food shopping because of a crazy week of work projects and deadlines. So I ended up making a fairly easy baked Chocolate Cheesecake instead, which I adapted from this blueberry and white chocolate Korasoi recipe. […]

Heyy, I love your recipe. It looks soo yummy. I stay in india, so I was wondering if ricotta cheese is similar to paneer here? Ricotta cheese is a lil difficult to find.

I also made this,  I reduced the amount of sugar to just 1 and 1/2 and it also worked very well and set without any problem after chilled.

This recipe was a fantastic discovery, thank you!

I just came across this cheesecake recipe and it looks fabulous! 

I wanted to enquire about something, you see... we don't get blueberries in India where i live, i was wondering if i could substitute it with some other fruit. I would like your opinion on if it would taste just as good and which fruit should i subustitute it with.
