How to make homemade strawberry cheesecake

Cheesecake with strawberry glaze

What you need:


  • 275 g (1 1/4 c) crumbled graham crackers
  • 55 ml (4 tbsp) butter or margarine, melted
  • 50 g (1/4 c) sugarFilling:
  • 3 250 g (1 c) packages cream cheese
  • 250 g (1 c) sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 250 g (1 c) sour creamStrawberry Glaze:
  • 50 ml (1/4 c) strawberry jelly
  • 15 ml (1 tbsp) water
  • 500 g (2 c) fresh strawberries, hulled and thinly slicedWhat to do:

    1. Prepare the crust: Preheat the oven to 160°C (325°F). In a medium bowl, using a fork, toss the crumbs, butter and sugar until well blended. Press the crust mixture firmly over the bottom of a 23 centimetre (nine inch) springform pan.

    2. Prepare the filling: In the bowl of a food processor or blender, combine the cream cheese and sugar, and pulse until they are well blended and smooth. With the motor running, add the eggs one at a time. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, add the sour cream, and whirl until the filling is smooth and well blended.

    3. Pour the filling into the prepared pan and bake until the filling is only slightly loose in the centre of the cheesecake, about 50 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let the cheesecake cool to room temperature. Remove the sides of the pan before glazing the cheesecake.

    4. Prepare the glaze: In a small pot over moderately high heat, combine the jelly and water, and bring the mixture to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat and let the glaze cool slightly. Brush the cheesecake with about one third of the glaze. Beginning along an outside edge of the cake top, arrange the sliced strawberries in overlapping concentric circles. Brush the remaining glaze lightly over the strawberries. Makes one 23 centimetre (nine inch) cheesecake or six to eight servings.
