april: jasmine’s fluffy berry cheesecake

IMG_4638

We had family in town this month and I wanted to bake something for an afternoon tea at home. I went through snippets of recipes that I have collected over the years and came across a recipe for a fluffy berry cheesecake. The recipe is quick and easy and the step that takes the longest to prepare is the baking! It is also pretty and delicious!! Perfect for an afternoon with guests AND to have as an indulgent afternoon pick-me-up with a cup of tea (umm…that is if there is left over cake for the next day ;p).

I was able to prepare the cake and wash-up during Baby A’s 40 min morning nap, bake the cake while I fed baby A her lunch and then let the cake cool while I took baby A for a walk. By the time her arvo nap came around, I dusted icing sugar over the cake and was able to prep tea for my guests :)

As for the cake – it is light…it is like a vanilla cake in texture and the cream cheese in the recipe adds moisture and a bit of rich decadence – without being too heavy or gluggy. I am generally not a fan of baked cheesecake because most that I have tried tends to be too rich for my liking.

Oh…and I didn’t mention that the recipe includes 350g of berries! That has got to be good for the health :)
