The recipe of this blueberry cheesecake has been delayed for almost 4 years. For those who’s been readers of my old blog might have known the reason. Although I have not gotten any answer from my friend, I decided to post the recipe as I altered it.
After baking this cake several times, I tried to modify the recipe by substituting cream cheese to mascarpone cheese and I never looked back considering the result, it was heavenly delicious!
I know for some people especially those who live in Indonesia, changing cream cheese to mascarpone cheese means more cost. Yes, in Indonesia, diary products are expensive hence I did not bake regularly as I used to in Germany. So, if you prefer to have cream cheese instead of mascarpone cheese, do not worry, it was delish too.
For the crust, you can either make it from scratch or use biscuit base. On my first attempt, I made it from scratch but nowadays I use digestive biscuit instead. Which one is better in taste depends on your liking, but using biscuit as the base is safe you a lot, both in time and ingredients consumed.
If you want to make the crust from scratch, you can use the recipe below:
Recipe from Sheila

My Entry for Foodography Photo Contest
By the way, I will be hosting DMBLGIT February 2012 edition and I cannot wait for it as the last time I hosted this event was 4 years ago. Means it has been more than 3 years I didn’t participate in DMBLGIT. Yup, I decided to stop joining this photo contest as participants since my last badge. The reasons are simply because I was (am still) busy with my son and I believe DMBLGIT needs new comers in its event. But then I came across Tika’s blog and read about this photo contest. I think I have to give myself a try after my loooonnngggg hiatus in food photography event. So, I am sending the blueberry cheesecake photo above to Foodography Photo Contest held by Nella of Beloved Star for celebrating her 18th birthday. Happy Birthday Nella!

Have a nice day and enjoy your cheesecake 😉
