Cherry Cheesecake (Nigella Lawson) 黑樱桃芝士蛋糕

Cherry Cheesecake (Nigella Lawson) 黑樱桃芝士蛋糕

Recipe source : Nigella Lawson

Nigella's cherry cheesecake tastes terrific! The only downside is, it is so rich and fattening.  The recipe calls for a 20cm spring form tin. I do not have a 20cm tin so I used a 23cm tin instead. That's why my cheesecake is much flatter.


125g crumbled digestive biscuits
75g soft butter
300g cream cheese
60g icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract  ( I did not use this )
1/2 tsp lemon juice
250ml double cream
1 jar black cherry spread


1.  Blitz the biscuits in a food processor until beginning to turn to crumbs, then add butter and whizz again.
2.  Press the mixture into a 20cm spring form tin. 
3.  Beat together the cream cheese, icing sugar, vanilla extract and lemon juice in a bowl until smooth.
4.  Slightly whip the double cream and then fold it into the cream cheese mixture.
5.  Spoon the cheese filling onto the biscuit base and smooth with a spatula.
6.  Put it in the fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight.
7.  When you are ready to serve the cheesecake, unmould it and spread the black cherry over the top.

  1. Hi Doris! How thin is your cake? Is that the reason all your pics are overhead shots? :D

    1. 3 cm.

      A bird's-eye view is always better.

  2. Hi Doris,
    I have been meaning to make one of Nigella's cheesecake recipes, but did not have enough of time! It will have to be after August!
    Your cake looks wonderful!
    Thanks for linking!

  3. Doris, I would love to have a slice of your cheesecake!

  4. Hi Doris,

    Thinner cake??? Nevermind!!! This means that you can eat a bigger slice of cake with the same amount of fat :p - Just joking!

    Enjoy your delicious cake... while I'm only feasting it with my eyes :p


  5. I love the Dalfour brand of preserves too. It looks great on this cheesecake!
