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.

Worked perfectly, after having frozen the sponge, and it was still moist a few days later

This cake is fantastic, I used frozen blueberries and was just as nice. Finished in a sitting!

I made this cake today for a birthday tomorrow and it has cracked all over the annoying!

It was easy to make and turned out really yummy. Try making nice patterns out of the blueberries on the frosting to make it look pretty. :) Like someone suggested I added some raspberries into the mix and it worked really well.

Absolutely gorgeous cake - kinda like a really nice blueberry muffin with frosting on top. Don't be tempted to use low fat cheese for the frosting cos it'll probably go runny. Baked this for a dinner party and 4 of us scoffed the lot!

I made this for a charity cake stall and it was a big hit. It was very easy to make, lovely & moist and tasted gorgeous. But it did take a lot longer to cook than 50 minutes. I used frozen blueberries which were ok in the cake but didn't look so good on top! I will definitely use fresh fruit next time. I also used a traditional "carrot cake frosting" (butter, icing sugar and cream cheese) and not the sour cream version stated. Yummy.

This was so simple to make and tasted wonderfully moist. Got a big thumbs up from my guests for the soft cheese frosting too.

I used blackberries instead of blueberries the second time I made this and both times the cake was delicious!

made this for my friend birthday, and everyone love it. but i reduce the sugar as our taste of sugar is lower here. another friend of mine, took this recipe to make cupcake and it look so pretty and taste as delicious. you can add in other berries like raspberry too for a more colourful decor and flavour
