Mini Cheesecakes

Wanted to bake cheesecake last night but short of eggs, then I went online and read about HHDD's cheesecake all the way made me have stronger desire to bake cheesecake! I checked out some recipes online but settled on a simple recipe from Dinner Tonight cookbook I have. Made minor adjustment to the recipe and baked two variation of mini cheesecakes, lime and blueberry.

Lime Cheesecake

Added lime zest and lime juice in this one, unique taste.

Blueberry Cheesecake

This one topped with frozen blueberries before bake.


Ingredients (makes 24):

  • 240g sweet biscuits, crushed
  • 120g butter, softened
  • 500g cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup blueberry
  • 1 lime (for zest and juice)


  1. Preheat oven to 175C. Line muffin pans with paper cases.
  2. Mix together crushed biscuits and butter. Pack one tablespoon of the mixture into each paper case.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the cream cheese, sugar, eggs and vanilla.
  4. Fill 12 paper cases with mixture, almost to the top. Add lime juice and zest to the remaining mixture, and fill another 12 paper cases.
  5. For blueberry cheesecakes, place 3-4 blueberries in the middle.
  6. Bake all cheesecakes in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Cool completely.

  1. These cheesecakes are so finger-friendly! Cool!

  2. That's probably the quickest entry to HHDD ever! These look great, I'm still not sure what kind of cheesecake I'm going to make.

  3. tigerfish & brilynn, i love mini cheesecakes cos i can bake in small amount for 2 persons the big cheesecake is too much for us. it'd be interesting to see all sort of cheesecakes from around the world.

  4. These would not last more than a day at our house! They are gorgeous and very appealing.

  5. This is brilliant! You are so right about the big full size cheesecake is just too much for two!
    Both are beautiful!

  6. helene, make sure you make lots of them.

    mykitcheninhalfcups, another advantange about the mini cakes is that I can play with the flavours.

  7. They both look yummy! And cute too :)

  8. Beautiful cheesecakes and beautiful photos. Thanks for entering.

  9. u make excellent cakes... very nice... :)

  10. Exactly what I was seeking - more chic, and with less cooking time.

    Halved the batch - didn't have the little paper cups and wasn't sure if they'd come out neatly from muffin pans, so made them in ramekins instead - had to increase the baking time to around 35mins... worked a treat though!

    Was a dinner that had to impress... and it did - so thanks!
