  • Line a piece of baking paper between the ring and the base of a springform pan and secure it (approx. 22 cm in diameter).
  • Mix butter and crushed biscuits well and put it in the pan.
  • Press well into an even base.
  • Soak gelatine leaves in cold water for approx. 5 minutes.
  • Sprinkle strawberries with sugar.
  • Stir cream cheese with approx. 50 ml of double cream to soften it and whip the rest of the double cream into a light foam.
  • Fold strawberries, cream cheese and whipped cream together.
  • Remove the gelatine sheets from the water (with the water that clings to it).
  • Melt it in a bowl in a water bath.
  • Cool gelatine leaves with lemon juice, sieve, and stir into the strawberry mixture.
  • Spread the strawberry cream cheese on the biscuit base, cover the cake and put it in the fridge for at least 4 hours until set.
  • Take the cheesecake out of the spring form, place it on a plate and decorate with strawberries.

The intensity of the flavour is essential for this strawberry cheesecake. For the best result, use ripe strawberries for a sweeter and fruitier flavour. You can also use frozen strawberries if it is outside of the strawberry season but remember to consider the extra liquid added.


The cream cheese is the key to a creamy and smooth filling. Take it out of the fridge about an hour before making the filling so it is softened to room temperature. This will make it blend with the other ingredients, so you avoid getting lumps in the cheesecake. Another way to avoid lumps is to sieve the cream.


To check if your strawberry cheesecake is set, look for a shiny top that is firm to the touch. If it still feels jiggly, leave it longer in the fridge or move it to the freezer for about 30 minutes before cutting the cake. Do not freeze it longer than that, or the cheesecake loses the creamy texture right before serving.
