If you're a berry fan you'll love this. I made this with malt biscuits .... divine! When it comes to desserts I can't cook for peanuts so when I made this for a family dinner (mum, dad, siblings, neies and nephews), they loved it (not to mention, blown away!)... that's how simple it is!

Rebecca's Review | Rating

very yum and rich. people loved it. was hard to get it to look like the picture with the gelatin topping nice and even. also the biscuits quantities in the recipe dont make the thick and high crust as viewed in the pic. used arnots choc fudge cookies for rich chocolate base.

great pudding

Cara's Review | Rating

This recipe is awesome, I've made it a few times now and is always good. A tip for combining the cheesecake filling with the boysenberries is to use a potato masher, worked better than an electric mixer for me! I always need more gelatin mixture too, maybe because I'm using a bigger dish.

Abbey's Review | Rating

Delicious......use Oreo for base and crushed flake and fresh boysenberries on top!

Lisa's Review | Rating

It was easy and yummy!
Just didnt spread the biscuits up the side enough!
so the jelly didnt work haha.
Plus USE a flan dish!!!! dont be like me and use a cke tin with a slip off bottom thing!!!(Not Good)

Danny's Review | Rating

This cheesecake is fantastic. I made it for a potluck dinner and someone told me it was the best cheesecake they'd ever tasted! The berry juice topping looks really impressive but is easy to make. If you cannot find suitable chocolate biscuits just use plain wine biscuits with a couple of tablespoons of cocoa like I did.

Tracy's Review | Rating

I have made this many times and it is always a huge hit. I use chocolate wheaten biscuits for the base - tastes great!!

Alexis Simmonds's Review | Rating

Very yummy! I will be making this again with less filling so that the top might (fingers crossed) sit on top better. I recommend leaving it to chill longer than 2 hours. I used Farmbake Chocolate Chip Fudge biscuits - YUM!

Penelope Frost's Review | Rating

This is really easy to make, but I found it hard to get it to look as neat as the one in the picture but i will try a flan dish next time. Not that it matters as it tastes great!

Sarsha's Review | Rating

I just made this tonight (with some minor modifications) and it came out exactly like in the picture! As tasty as it looks too, if not tastier.

Here are the changes I made:
- I used 1.5 packets of biscuits and melted enough butter for them to clump together. I read the comments about the crust not being high or thick enough, so I thought it was better to make a bit too much and have enough for a solid base with high sides to keep in the top jelly part. I used Farmbake Triple Chocolate cookies (my favorite!). I'm not sure if it was the type of cookie or the amount I used, but I needed a surprisingly large amount of butter (I expected to need 150g, but I ended up using 400-500!). Not all of the crust mixture went into the cake though, there was plenty left. I'm thinking about using muffin trays to mold the extras into little cups and eating it with ice cream.
- I added a 1/4 cup of water to the boysenberry juice. When I looked at what came out of the can (and I tried to drain as much as I could), it just didn't seem like enough to cover everything nicely. Worked a treat.
- I let the crust and cheesecake filling chill in the fridge for 30 mins before adding the gelatin top. The juice mixed with gelatin was left on the countertop to cook down a bit during this too. I was worried about adding the warm mixture to the still-soft filling, so I took this little precaution.

I also tried Cara's tip about the potato masher. I still used an electric beater in the end, but I'm glad I used the masher first. When you tip the berries and the filling into the bowl, you'll probably see what I mean. Approaching that with a beater was an intimidating thought.

Overall, a great dessert! It's pretty simple to put together, but it looks very very impressive.

have been making this cheesecake for 8 years now and the recipe is just perfect - we usually make it at Christmas time and it is always asked for as it is just devine. love it :):)

Delicious dessert. I always get asked for this recipe

Raquel's Review | Rating

Would this be just as great if made a day before needed?

Christine's Review | Rating

I made this for Christmas Day and it was a big hit. I used a slightly smaller 20cm loose bottomed tin and Oreo biscuits for the base which were perfect. I made my own filling with 250gr cream cheese, 1/2 cup berry yoghurt, 4 tsp gelatine and 2 Tbsp sugar dissolved in 1/2 cup of hot water and 1 Tbsp of lemon juice. I also used the back of a spoon to pour the liquid topping over so it would not disturb the cheesecake mix too much. I will definitely be making this again.
