Nutella Swirl Baked Cheese Cake Slices & Individual Baked Blueberry Cheese Cakes

I love Nutella.  When you are in a rush, it's tasty, it's easy and it's chocolate, with nuts.

When we had the visitors last weekend, I decided to make some cheese cakes.  I like baked cheese cakes better, so it's an easy choice.

Nutella Swirl Baked Cheese Cake Slices & Individual Baked Blueberry Cheese Cakes

Biscuit Base:
200g sweet biscuit, Hubby bought Arnott's Marnie (I prefer Scotch fingers)
100g butter, softened.

Crush biscuits in food processor and mix in butter.  Pour crumbs to the bottom of a lined lamington tray and the extra goes to 2 x 4.5" individual spring form tins.  Press hard with back of spoon, chill in fridge till firm.

Cheese Cake mixture:

500g cream cheese - room temperature
4 eggs
300ml double cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

Use a benchtop mixer (well, this can be done by hand, but I'm lazy), beat the cream cheese on low to medium till smooth, beat in eggs one by one, and add cream sugar, vanilla.

The mixture is enough to fill the lamington tin and the small springforms.  I added blue berries to the cheese cake mixture in the individual spring forms and added plenty of nutella to the lamington tin, use a skewer to make swirl pattern.

Bake in preheated 190C oven for 30 minutes. 
Keep oven door ajar to let cheese cakes cool done.

And put them in the fridge overnight, easier to cut into slices to serve. 

As for the individual blueberry cheese cakes, have it for one dessert or share...


  1. Both cheesecake options look delicious! I think I'd like the slices best, but then, they contain nutella so they have that advantage!

  2. Those nutella cheesecake bars look amazing! I love nutella, it's so good on everything!
