Creamy and soft, no bake, lemon curd cheesecake marbled with blueberry pie filling.
Another favorite cheesecake to start the week. This time the creamiest, softest cheesecake I have ever made, topped with homemade canned blueberry pie filling. A treat for everybody!
This might also be the quickest, simplest cheesecake I have ever made. Main reason for that is the use of canned ingredients, ingredients I already had in the fridge/pantry, like homemade lemon curd and blueberry pie filling from last year. I still had quite a lot of lemon curd leftover after making the filling for a wedding cake and the last opened jar of blueberry pie filling. I had opened the jar to eat it over milk rice and I used the rest to marble this cheesecake.
I made and canned this blueberry pie filling at the end of last summer and meant to use, well, for making blueberry pies. I have to admit that although I had about 5 or 6 jars of this filling, I have not made one single blueberry pie. We ate all of it, with the exception of this last half jar used for this cheesecake, over milk rice, crepes or pancakes. Amazingly delicious! Of course, if you don’t have homemade blueberry pie filling, you can definitely used the bought version, I am sure it would work just as well. Sorry, for not posting the pie filling last summer, it is too late now, there is nothing left to take pictures of. But as I will make some again in August, I hope to get to post the recipe sometimes soon. Otherwise take a look at this link, this is the recipe I followed. Or you could use this black currant refrigerator jam or this blueberry curd instead, I think it would be great on top of this cheesecake.
If you would like to make the lemon curd yourself, this is my lemon curd recipe – the sweet version, the one I make most of the times. You can use bought one as well to simplify the matters. I did not take any sugar when making the filling, I found it unnecessary. Still, taste the mixture and add some if you like things sweeter. The cake is still very soft even after firming up. Keep this in mind when transferring the cake onto a serving platter, you don’t want to ruin its aspect. I loved its softness and tenderness, I think that was the best thing about it, a creamy heaven, I would say.
Sorry for not having more time to write today, there is another wedding planned for next week for which I have to make the cake. I have been working on the roses and other little flowers for weeks now and I am still not finished… On top of that I still have to make a pair of fondant shoes for a Christening cake and prepare the posts for the next 3 weeks. We will be on holiday starting the 1st of August and I want to make as much as possible ahead. Busy, busy, busy… 🙂
I wish you all a great week!
