I love all kinds of cheesecake and today I would like to share with you my favorite recipe for a delicious homemade cheesecake. It is really easy to make, tastes great and looks beautiful. I hope you enjoy this blueberry cheesecake recipe!

You can enjoy this cake plain, but I’ve included a recipe for a blueberry topping. If you don’t like blueberries, you can make a strawberry or raspberry topping.

  • 3 cups blueberries (can use fresh or frozen )
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar

  5. Preheat oven to 430 F.
  6. In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, mix together cream cheese and sugar, until fluffy. (You can use a regular electric mixer and a bowl). Make sure you scrape the bowl, so you don’t get any cream cheese chunks.
  7. Add eggs, one at a time and mix on low speed. Add vanilla.
  8. Add greek yogurt and mix well on low speed.
  9. Pour into crust .
  10. Bake on 430 F for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 275 F and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Turn the oven off and let the cheesecake sit inside for 1 hour. Then cool at room temperature. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
  11. Blueberry Sauce:
  12. In a large pan over medium heat, combine water, sugar, lemon juice and flour. When this mixture begins to thicken add blueberries and mix well, so they are evenly coated. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until sauce begins to bubble.
  13. Cool at room temperature and serve on top of chilled cheesecake.
