Baked Raspberry Streusel Cheesecake

Sweet and tangy baked cheesecake studded with raspberries and a buttery oat streusel

One of my favourite cakes EVER is cheesecake, but not just any cheesecake, a luscious and creamy baked cheesecake. There is something about a good baked cheesecake that just hits the spot. I’ve spent years trying to perfect my cheesecake recipe and this is it! Tangy, sweet and creamy.

  I was thinking of how I should share the cheesecake recipe, and thought instead of posting a regular baked cheesecake recipe why not make it a little more interesting. I’ve always been a massive fan of cheesecake crust, so why not top the cheesecake with more crust. The oaty crumble adds a little more texture to the cheesecake and the raspberries add an extra pop of flavour which cuts through the rich cheesecake.

If you have ever made a baked cheesecake before you will know the struggle with cracks. Cheesecakes can be very sensitive to heat and the tops can split if not baked at the right temperature and for the right time. That’s why this recipe is a great introduction to baked cheesecakes! Since the top has been covered in a delicious oaty crumble you won’t have to worry about cracks, and still have a stunning (and delicious) cake.

Once day I’ll post my baked cheesecake recipe with all the tips on achieving a smooth, crack free top and creamy interior, but for now enjoy this one! If you do make this recipe make sure to tag me on instagram @catherine.justdessertsau and hashtag #cattycakes so I can find and share your recipes. Until next time… happy caking!

    Hi Catherine,

    This recipe looks amazing and I can’t wait to try it! Just one thing – the thickened cream ingredient seems to be missing from the ingredient list, but it’s used in the recipe steps. Would you be able to let me know the amount of thickened cream to use? Thank you so much!

      Hi Jodie, Sorry about that! I’ve been updating the website and I must’ve missed it when I retyped the recipe. I’ll add it in now 🙂
