It’s amazing how a tin of sweetened condensed milk can be transformed into a delicious dessert, and this condensed milk berry cheesecake slice is no exception.
The condensed milk cheesecake mixture could really be used to make any variety of cheesecake, from salted caramel to chocolate or french vanilla. But adding mixed berries makes for the perfect summer dessert that is perfectly creamy and sweet without being too sweet.
Condensed milk cheesecake slice is the perfect dessert to take to summer get togethers. It can easily feed a crowd, and cheesecakes are one of those classic desserts that you can be sure everyone will love.
You could use fresh berries if you preferred, but to keep it simple I just grab a bag of mixed berries from the freezer section of the supermarket. Using frozen berries is definitely the budget friendly option when it comes to berries, and gives a great variety of berries without having to buy 4 seperate punnets of berries.
To make the condensed milk berry cheesecake slice, as with most cheesecakes recipes you will first need to start with the biscuit base. A combination of biscuit crumbs and melted butter is a failsafe cheesecake base that tastes delicious and always holds together, even when the cheesecake is cut.
Before making a start on the slice, preheat the oven to 150c and line a slice tin with baking paper.
First, crush a packet of biscuits in a food processor until the biscuit and finely crushed. Next, add the melted butter and process again until well combined. Transfer the mixture to a slice tin lined with baking paper, and press down firmly with your fingers or the back of a spoon. Transfer the slice tin to firm up slightly while you make a start on the cheesecake layer.
Add the room temperature cream cheese to the food processor and process until smooth. Add the tin of sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice and eggs to the food processor and process once again until smooth and well combined.
Sprinkle half of the mixed berries over the biscuit base, then pour the cheesecake mixture over the top. Top the cheesecake mixture with the remaining mixed berries and bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
Allow the cheesecake slice to cool completely, before transferring to the fridge for around 2 hours. Then slice and serve!
