Blueberry and Sloe Gin Cheesecake

Fruity, creamy and decadent.

This delicious cheesecake has been as welcome on a bright summer's day as it has been on a chilly autumn evening. The note of lemon and tang of blueberries offer a taste of summer, and the addition of Sloe Gin provides an exciting nod to Christmas. 

 

The fruit topping is the shining star, and the recipe can easily be adapted to use any berries you have to hand. Blackberries are another tasty choice we can vouch for. We tend to use frozen fruit as we always have several bags in our freezer, but do use fresh if you have them. Tinned fruit can also work well, making sure to drain the liquid first. 

 

Also, feel free to experiment with the biscuits used in the cheesecake base. Here we have suggested digestives, but ginger biscuits give a tasty hint of spice, and we've also made versions with Oreos and Bourbons. 

 

This recipe makes approx 8 to 10 portions.
