Forest fruit cheesecake

Cheesecake is my favorite dessert, I love the combination of sweet cookies and cream cheese, especially if there are strawberries or any berries in the mix bringing that sour-sweet freshness. It is possibly the easiest cake to make and uses just a few ingredients that you probably already have in your fridge.

My first cheesecake wasn’t in a patisserie, it wasn’t as popular here then so you couldn’t find them at every patisserie. So I heard my friend talking about making one a few days back and I asked for the recipe. The recipe was scribbled down on a piece of paper and that same evening I made my first cheesecake, and immediately fell in love – you can say it was love at first bite.

I know that there are so many different options when making a cheesecake – so what is your favourite cheesecake? Maybe a chocolate cheesecake, cheery cheesecake or even a pumpkin cheesecake?
