Berry Cheesecake

My cousin makes this cheesecake every year for our family christmas and it tastes divine, so light and fluffy. She kindly shared her recipe with me and I made it for a friend’s dinner party. As it was my first attempt at baking a cheesecake, I was pleased with how it came out and how easy it was to make. My Gramps loved it so much he told me that I can make it for him any time.

I only took the photos after it was in the fridge for an hour and not properly set, so as I was taking the photos I could see the edges slowly starting to melt, making it a bit more difficult to get a nice photo of it! Also, my camera is slightly broken at the moment (as in it won’t take any photos) so I had to use my sisters old camera, so the photo quality isn’t as good as normal.
