Blueberry Cheesecake

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:

Cheesecake Crust

Recipe from Sheila

What you need:
150 gr all-purpose-flour
1 egg yolk
50 gr icing sugar
1 pack vanilla sugar
100 margarine/butter

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until incorporated and non-sticky. Cover the bowl with aluminum foil, store in a fridge for 1 hour. After 1 hour, form the dough on the baking pan, pin with the fork. Bake in the oven of 180°C for 10 minutes . Remove from oven and spring with 1 teaspoon of bread crumb before pouring the cheesecake mixture.

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!

  1. Blueberrynya mahal, mascarponenya mahal juga :)But it really worth the price.
    Glad you join the contest too, Sefa !

    • bener! worth the price banget!
      btw, kalo mau beli blueberry segar/frozen dimana ya?

      gue nih kalo bisa bawa kulkas, gue borong deh itu keju-kejuan :)

      • Di Carrefour, Giant atau Lottemart gitu ada kok. Harga 1 box biasanya di bawah 50 rb. Variatif sih harganya.

        Kadang lucu aja, kita di Indonesia kalo mo beli blueberry mesti mikir2 dulu. Lha temen gw di Switzerland doyan rambutan, tapi harga di sana gila2an. Di sini lagi musim rambutan sampe berjejer di pinggir jalan.

        • thank you infonya, deket rumah di jakarta adanya c4 aja nih, kalo giant and lottemart gak tau dimana :D
          eh btw, itu yg frozen atau fresh?
          disinipun sebetulnya blueberry udah hitungan mahal kok

          hehehe, Allah Maha Adil ya :)
          disini pengen makan pepaya aja susahnya minta ampun :D

          • Fresh blueberry, Sef. Ntar kalo di Jkt coba dilihat2, soalnya C4, Giant, Lottemart itu pasti deket2an :D Persaingan bisnis !

            Betul banget Allah Maha Adil. Kadang kita suka menganggap yang tidak kita punya itu lebih bagus dan indah. Sampai2 kita ga bersyukur dengan apa yang ada di depan kita.

            Contohnya rambutan, pas lihat banyak banget di pasar males banget belinya. :P Malah kepengen beli blueberry.Hihihihi

  2. Hasil fotonya keren-keren Sefa!
    It seems that the pictures perfectly show how delicious the cake is.
