Discover the joy of baking with our ultimate Blueberry Cheesecake recipe—creamy, lush, and bursting with fresh blueberries!


  • For the crust:
  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs

  • 1/3 cup white sugar

  • 1/2 cup melted butter

  • For the filling:
  • 4 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (if using frozen, do not thaw)

  • 4 large eggs

  • For the blueberry topping:
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries

  • 1/2 cup white sugar

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • Juice of 1 lemon


  • Prepare the crust: In a mixing bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter until well blended. Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Set aside.
  • Make the filling: In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar, vanilla, and flour, beating until combined. Add eggs one at a time, beating just until blended. Gently fold in the blueberries.
  • Bake: Pour the filling over the crust in the springform pan. Place the pan in a preheated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for 50-55 minutes, or until the center is almost set.
  • Prepare the topping: While the cheesecake is baking, combine blueberries, sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook until the blueberries burst and the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Let cool.
  • Cool and chill: Once the cheesecake is done, allow it to cool on a wire rack for about an hour, then spread the blueberry topping over the top. Refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.

Variations and Toppings for Blueberry Cheesecake

The basic blueberry cheesecake recipe provided above is just the beginning. The beauty of cheesecake lies in its adaptability. Here are some exciting variations and toppings to try:


  1. Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake: Add the zest of one lemon to the cheesecake batter to infuse it with a citrusy zing that complements the blueberries wonderfully.
  2. Chocolate Blueberry Cheesecake: Mix in 1/2 cup of cocoa powder to the batter for a deep chocolate flavor. This pairs delightfully with the tartness of the blueberries.
  3. Vegan Blueberry Cheesecake: Substitute the cream cheese and eggs with blended cashews and coconut cream, and use a vegan crust for a dairy-free version.
  4. No-Bake Blueberry Cheesecake: Mix softened cream cheese with whipped cream and confectioner’s sugar for a no-bake version. Use a gelatin or agar mixture to set the cheesecake if desired.


  1. Streusel Topping: Combine flour, brown sugar, and butter to create a crumbly streusel topping that adds texture and flavor to the creamy cheesecake.
  2. Whipped Cream: A dollop of freshly whipped cream not only adds elegance but also a creamy texture that goes perfectly with the dense cheesecake.
  3. Mint and Lime: Sprinkle finely chopped mint and a zest of lime over the blueberry topping for a refreshing twist.

  3. Pairing: Pair the cheesecake with a light dessert wine such as a Riesling or a sparkling Moscato to enhance the dining experience.
