Berry cheesecake in a glass

Hungry but in a hurry? This easy berrylicious cheesecake can be whipped-up in a flash.


Preparation method

  1. Heat the berries, caster sugar and one tablespoon of the lemon juice in a small pan, stirring well to combine, for 3-4 minutes, or until the sugar has dissolved and the berries have broken down. Set aside to cool.

  2. Place the biscuits into a freezer bag and crush using a rolling pin until they resemble breadcrumbs.

  3. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over a low to medium heat.

  4. Mix together the crushed biscuits and melted butter in a bowl until well combined. Spoon the mixture into the bottom of two large serving glasses.

  5. Place the mascarpone into a large mixing bowl and fold in the lemon zest, remaining lemon juice and icing sugar.

  6. Spoon the mascarpone into the glasses, then spoon over the berries and juice. Serve immediately.
