Mini blueberry cheesecake

It is April already ?! 

How time flies ! 

And I haven't baked cheesecake for more than 2 months ?

Shame ......

It's easier and faster to use a 9-inch or an 8-inch springform pan but since I've been making smaller portion of this and that , what's another bite-size portion , right ?

Okay , when it comes to cheesecakes , mini is the way to go , why ? I just can't slice neatly to save my life ugh ! -___-

Need to ask Lizzy ! lol 

If you've seen some of my cheesecakes , don't worry if the recipes are not always the same ; adding a little this and that , reducing the baking time - nothing drastic , mind you and so far , it always works out in the end ....

Good thing coz cream cheese is not that cheap ! 

This is the first time that I've added some grated lemon and lime zest and it gives the rich and dense cheesecake a more fresher and lighter taste .

The blueberry topping itself is a beaut . I think I've found my ideal blueberry topping ! 

So , have you had a neat slice of cheesecake lately ? lol 

Please check original recipe @ Martha Stewart 

Makes 19 mini cheesecakes or one 9-( about 1 1/4-inch high ) or 8-inch ( this is much more thicker ) round cake

For the blueberry sauce : You can use frozen blueberries when making a purée but use fresh for your add-in , the crunch of the fresh blueberries is really wonderful .

* Combine 1 1/4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries and 1 1/2 teaspoons tapioca starch in a food processor and process until smooth . Transfer mixture into a small saucepan and bring to a boil ; cook until slightly thick , stirring constantly , transfer to a small bowl and wash the saucepan .

* Combine the puréed blueberries , 1/4 cup sugar and 1/3 cup water in a saucepan . Cook over medium heat for 8 minutes or until sauce is thick , stirring constantly . Gently fold in 1/2 cup fresh blueberries . Remove from heat and let cool completely before using .


  1. Anne, you've been making so many nice cute food lately..that I'm dreaming of moving into your kitchen:) Can I? Please??

  4. Hi Anne, those babies are gorgeous. You make really good cheese cakes!

  5. So lovely these mini cheesecakes :). Sounds pretty easy too, i hv never attempted making one, but might give this a go.

  6. Your mini cheesecakes look so gorgeous, now I want to ask you, how do you manage to unmould them so neatly:P

    1. Jeannie , just lightly grease the small tins , only the top part usually sticks so run a paring knife around the tin but not all the way through . Unmold only after they are completely cool . Using small muffin liners are great as well , you don't have to transfer each cheesecake and just serve it as it is , saves time on cleaning up :D

  7. These are just stunning, Anne!!! You are the cheesecake queen!!!!
