Last year I was inspired by this recipe from Nigella.com Cherry Cheesecake recipe to do this in a great way with Blackberries I had picked and thought I would make a different kind of Cheesecake. I told my friends who asked for the recipe after my photos and I have been sharing this recipe with everyone so far. I also thought I would do this from scratch but have been trying different toppings to try out to see which looks the best.
- 250 grams hobnobs (crushed)
- 75 grams butter (melted)
- 3 leaves gelatine
- 1 juice of lemon
- 300 millilitres double cream
- 250 grams blackberries

- Crush the biscuits in a large bowl with a rolling pin handle until it turns to crumbs, then heat the butter in a pan and add the biscuits and mix well until all the butter has made the biscuits moist.
- Put Greaseproof or baking paper into the a 20 cm or 8 inch round tin with a bottom you can lift up.
- Press this mixture into the tin with a metal spoon; you can leave it flat on the bottom or put some along the sides at the bottom for a slight ridge if desired.
- Heat Blackberries (but leave some for decoration on the top) with 2 tablespoons of water and a little sugar until the Blackberries are soft then Sieve them with a metal spoon. (Put the seeds in a bowl and you can eat them with yoghurt as a desert.) Add the lemon juice and allow to cool.
- Whip the double cream until firm,
- Put Gelatine leaves in cold sieved Blackberry for 10 mins then heat until gelatine has dissolved and add to cream cheese and add to the whipped cream
- Spoon the cheesecake filling on top of the biscuit base and smooth with a spatula or metal spoon.
- Put it in the fridge for 3 hours or overnight.
- When you are ready to serve the cheesecake, pop up from the bottom of the tin and place on serving plate.
- Decorate on the top with Blackberry Jelly or Blackberry Icing or just Blackberries on their own or a combination of two of them.
