Strawberry Vanilla Cheescake!

At last. I have eventually  finished school and now i have the whole summer to bake, eat, bake some more and blog! I don't make cheesecake often and somehow i managed to throw out the magazine with this recipe in it but i decided to post it anyway!
The base of this recipe was what really made me make this. Instead of the usual crushed digestives it was a mixture of ground almonds butter and flour baked in the oven to make a cruchy almond base. Although i do really love crushed digestives mixed with melted butter i thought the almond base was slightly more sophisticated?

The topping consists of a tub of marscapone, i do remember that much! which made it lovely and smooth and creamy. I also added a tablespoon of vanilla bean paste (i know that seems rather a lot but i love it so much!) Then i folded in some whipped double cream and greek yoghurt and put strawberries on top!
i served it with some homemade strawberry coulis too.

My next post is definitely going to include more detail than this! I'm really looking forward to spending more time blogging, and i hope to try out some recipes i like from different blogs soon.


  1. Hi! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and for commenting. I am glad you liked it, it is definitely my passion! Your blog is also adorable, I love this cheesecake post, and I have to smile that you posted a red and white cake, with an almost Canadian flag in the center, on our national holiday (Canada Day)! I will definitely keep checking your site, I can't wait to try a few of your recipes and get inspired to bake new things.

  3. Mascarpone is lovely in cheese cake, better than cream cheese I think. And your strawberry cheesecake looks delicious.
