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.

I have made this cake several times and everyone who has tried it has loved it. One of my friend's loved it so much she has asked me to make it as a tier for her wedding cake (eeek!) I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to increase the measurements for a 12'' cake (34.5cm))?

Used frozen fruits of the forest berries from Asda instead of blueberries (just stirred them straight in). Then used double (rather than sour) cream for the topping and defrosted berries for the topping. Went down a treat over Easter!

I added a couple of tablespoons of lemon curd and the zest of one lemon to the sponge before splitting the batter into two tins. I then sandwiched them back together with my homemade lemon curd in the middle, it was divine! The only thing I didn't think was thick enough was the cheesecake topping, so I used my fail proof cream cheese topping from hummingbird bakery book, 300g icing sugar, 125g cream cheese and 50g soft butter and also added the juice of the lemon.... What a delight!

Made this today for Easter lunch. Really nice! Agree that it needed longer cooking time. After 50 mins at 160C I covered the top with greasepoof paper for another 15 mins.

This went down a treat with my guests and was simple to make. The icing didn't really set but was nevertheless delicious with grated lemon zest mixed in

Totally love this cake! Have made twice now, second time with buttermilk as forgot to buy soured cream and worked just fine. Defnitely takes longer to cook, unless you split the mix between 2 900g loaf tins.

I made this for our anniversary/valentine's day this week- Like many above, I added raspberries and it turned out beautifully. I used red icing to decorate 'Happy' at the top and 'Anniversary' at the bottom and then iced a red heart in the middle. Then arranged the blueberries and raspberries around it all which sounds busy but actually turned out stunning. I even posted it on FB and got a lot of great comments. That's two for two cakes I've made off this site which have been fantastic.
