Cheesecake frosting

  • 200g tub Philadelphia cheese
  • 100g icing sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to fan160C/ conventional 180C/gas 4 and butter and line the base of a loose-based 22cm round cake tin with non-stick baking paper or reusable Bake-o-glide.

  2. Put the butter, sugar, eggs,flour, baking powder and vanilla in a bowl. Beat with a wooden spoon for 2-3 minutes, or with a hand electric beater for 1-2 minutes, until lighter in colour and well mixed. Beat in 4 tbsp soured cream, then stir in half the blueberries with a large spoon.

  3. Tip the mixture into the tin and spread it level. Bake for 50 minutes until it is risen, feels firm to the touch and springs back when lightly pressed. Cool for 10 minutes, then take out of the tin and peel off the paper or lining. Leave to finish cooling on a wire rack.

  4. To make the frosting, beat the soft cheese with the icing sugar and the remaining soured cream in a bowl until smooth and creamy. Spread over the top of the cooled cake (don't be impatient as the frosting will melt if the cake is too warm) and scatter with the remaining blueberries. The cake will keep in the fridge for a couple of days. Bring it to room temperature for about an hour before serving.

It turned out really great, however I used creme fraiche instead of sour cream.

I made this today for my mums birthday. I was slightly apprehensive about it due to the mixed reviews but it turned out fantastic! The ingredients was all 100% right and it tastes delicious. Definitely recommend this to people and will absolutely be making this again.

Fab cake. I added half the blueberries to the cake mixture and then pressed the rest into the top of the cake before cooking. Solved the problem of sunken blueberries! I made 3/4 of the frosting and found this was ample. Cooked perfectly in 50mins. Will definitely be making this one again.

I have made this cake twice now and I am certain that it will feature in my kitchen many times in the future. The only mistake that I made the second time was using frozen berries (which I forgot to defrost) as the cake was very wet, taking longer to cook and was no as light tasting. Great for those special occasions.

It's a well known fact that I unable to cook, especially bake. I attempted this recipe with no expecations due to previous failures. Surprisingly it was a complete success and everone loved it. It was very easy, the sponge was a delicious moist vanilla and the frosing set it off a treat. Best thing i've eaten in ages.
