Cheesecake is believed to have originated in Greece, and was more like the cooked cheesecakes we have today, the biscuit based creamy cheesecakes are believed to have been created in America in New York.
Our cheesecake is a New York style cheesecake, with crushed digestive biscuits mixed with butter to form a crunchy crust. Our creamy cheese layer is made with creme fraiche, cream cheese, eggs and sugar. Unlike the traditional fruit cheesecakes, which place the fruit topping on top of the cream cheese layer, our cheesecake has the blueberry sauce swirled inside the cheese layer. The cheese cake is served with additional blueberry sauce.
