Recipe For Cheesecake | Mixed Berries Cheesecake

This Mixed Berry Cheesecake Is A Crowd Pleaser
If you are looking for a great recipe for cheesecake and you love the rich sweet and sour flavours of mixed berries then this is the dessert for you. Here at our place we all love cheesecake and the kids all love to pitch in and help to make it. This year for their birthday, my daughters decided they wanted a cheesecake for their birthday cake. At first I was reluctant but as I thought more about it I thought "why not?" Firstly, I could play around with the flavours easily (I hate mucking around with cake recipes because of my fear of failure), secondly, once I decided on a flavour I also knew the exact colour it would turn out and knew this would be a winner with a crowd of pre-teen girls. And so it was decided. It was to be a cheesecake.

Mixed Berries Cheesecake

Smooth and Creamy and a Pretty Colour as Well

I decided to make this mixed berries cheesecake for the girls' birthday cake. My girls love cheesecake and that suits me because I love making them. I can always rely on them turning out beautifully and baking is not my forte.
  • Serves: 8 - 12
  • Prep Time:
  • Total Time:


  • Packet Sweet Plain Biscuits
  • 125g (4oz) butter melted
  • 2 Tablespoons Cocoa
  • 500g (16oz) cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 teaspoons gelatin in half cup boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • About a cup of fresh or frozen mixed berries
  • Dark chocolate for drizzling
  • Strawberries for garnish


  1. Use about three quarters of the biscuits and process in a food processor until you have about a cup of biscuit crumbs. Place with the cocoa and the melted butter in a bowl and mix well. Empty bowl into a spring-form pan. It doesn't matter whether it is a large or smaller one. A smaller pan will make your cheesecake taller. spread the crumb mixture evenly across the bottom of the pan then press with the back of a spoon until smooth. Place in fridge to cool.
  2. Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to the boil until sugar dissolves. Add the berries to the pan and cook until soft. Pour this mixture into a sieve placed over a bowl or jug and push the fruit through with the back of a spoon until you have extracted as much puree as possible. Set aside. Place the cream cheese into a large bowl and mix with a wooden spoon or mixer until it is smooth and soft. Add combined water, gelatin and lemon juice and mix well. Now add fruit puree and mix until smooth. Pour mixture over biscuit base and refrigerate until set.
  3. Take a punnet of strawberries and rinse them then remove the leaves and stalks. Garnish the cheesecake as you desire with the strawberries. I placed whole strawberries, bottoms down all over the cheesecake. Melt about a quarter block of dark chocolate in a bowl over boiling water or in a microwave safe dish. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cheesecake.
