Blueberry bliss!

Jessica @ How Sweet

Do you need help eating it??


Wow - yum! That looks amazing, Amanda!


This looks fantastic, and I'm a huge fan of lemon and blueberry together...and cheesecake in general.

Brenda @ a farmgirl's dabbles

This looks really, really good! I did previously print off Tyler's recipe when you recommended it before - looks like I have another one to try! You spoke of your cheesecake cracking - have you tried a water bath? I always have good luck with that.


mmmmm cheesecake!


I am most definitely NOT a baker, but you always make it seem so easy and pleasurable that I'm inspired to try. :-)

Jennifer @ The Hudson Cakery

Awesome idea to combine both - that Cheesecake looks amazing!


Is this the cheesecake that was ready for the oven when you lost power? If so, it certainly doesn't look any worse for wear. How beautiful is all that blueberry juice floating on top and drizzling over the sides!


Deliciously gorgeous!

megan @ whatmegansmaking

Just beautiful! I've only made one cheesecake and it cracked terribly, but I had a blueberry topping as well, so no one even knew :) Great tip about room temperature ingredients - I didn't know that!

Looks fantastic!
I love plain cheesecake, but it it's going to be topped with anything, than I'm right with you on this one! It has to be blueberries. I believe the cracking comes from over mixing or so I've been told. My mom makes a perfect cheesecake, so I let her do it whenever she feels like spoiling me :) I was just thinking of blueberries on cheesecake when I blogged a recipe yesterday. It's Cranberry Cheesecake Pie,yes-in a pie, I was shocked I liked it with the cranberries in it, the pie part I loved! YUM!!!! It may become a staple for Thanksgiving :)
I'm sure everyone enjoyed your delicious looking cheesecake!

Amy from She Wears Many Hats

So pretty!

Erica B.

That looks so yummy. I attempted cheesecake once and I hated the way it turned it.


Yummy, yummy, yummy!

Your 'poor quality' pictures look like my 'best quality' shots!

Nikki (Pennies on a Platter)

Love Tyler Florence! Made a recipe of his last week...decadent! This looks really good...even your photos!


Bless your sweet little baker's heart, Amanda. This looks just like culinary heaven to me - I'm a HUGE fan of cheesecake... Maybe that's because I eat too much of it... Ha ha ha :) I am a big fan of mixing recipes to make them "just right for me", too!

When I was about eight I sold my soul for some blueberry cheesecake. Now, I have nothing to offer for a slice of this cheesecake. How sad.
Beautiful photo. I have camera skill envy.


I adore cheesecake and this looks like a *must* make a.s.a.p.!

Grandpa Dennis

Just so you know...it was good yesterday....and my second piece is still great today. Thanks to my great DIL Amanda!

Xiaolu @ 6 Bittersweets

This is so pretty. I've been in a cheesecake state of mind recently. What perfect timing you have :).

marla {family fresh cooking}

Oh yes! I am very sure these calories would be well worth it. Amanda this cheesecake looks great!

Amy's blah, blah, blog

Cheesecake is my absolute favorite. Particularly pumpkin. Oh, but I bet I would love that. My mouth is watering now...mmmmmm....

Jen @ My Kitchen Addiction

Ooh... I love that cheesecake! It looks so incredible!


Wow, this looks amazing.
I make Junior's Cheesecake recipe and love it but may have to try this! :) Juniors recipe is a tad too sweet.


I heard that if you turn the oven off when the cheesecake is done baking and leave it in there for an hour it's supposed to keep it from cracking. It's worth a try!


If you put your cheesecake in a water bath it should significantly better your chances of a crack-free cheesecake! a water bath keeps the high heat away from the sides of the cheesecake. Water can only get to a certain temperature in the oven and shouldn't have a chance to boil (with no direct flame there is not enough energy to boil water). Since it wont be so hot around the sides your cheesecake will be able to bake more evenly into the center. It will also help to keep the cheesecake in the water bath after you take it out of the oven. a dramatic temperature change can cause it to crack, so letting it cool in the water bath will also help it cool evenly and slowly. I learned this from my chef at the culinary institute of america, and she was selling her 6 inch cheesecakes for $50, so i always try and follow/share her tips!

This looks sooooo good!!

Cheesecake is a little intimidating to me...I usually resort to mini cheesecakes...that way if they are a little cracked, they are still cute and little!! ;)

And I still think your pictures turned out great.

Happy Wednesday!!

abby jenkins

This is not a good blog to find when you are trying to loose weight! I better get over to TMZ or somewhere where the cheese is calorie free, be back when I drop 10.

Great looking cake by the way!


Um, yeah I'm having this, by that I mean the whole thing. I love cheesecake!


If I made one of those, it would be half gone in a day! That looks totally awesome!


Best comment was from Grandpa Dennis! How sweet!
Wish I were your husband's cousin...or some relative that would get invited to these venues where you bring food!
I went through a cheesecake baking phase...now I just bake Amanda's Amazing Sugar Cookies. They're quite tasty and make me oober popular! ;)


i'd like to jump into a puddle of blueberry goo much like the one atop your marvelous cheesecake. gadzooks. :)


Hello there! I wanted to let you know that I nominated your blog for an award! Your recipes and pictures are always so yummy!

Take a look if you'd like to participate!



Okay before Tyler - I put cinnamon in my crust and a hint of nutmeg. So there Tyler! LOL

Hypnotherapy London

Looks amazing! Every time I come on this site I found more amazing things to try. Thank you, keep the great ideas coming!


I made it, and you're right it's perfect!! So much so that I turned right around and have already made it again-and found out that it's also a delicious and gorgeous showstopper with a cranberry/honey/Gran Marnier topping :-)

Cheesecake of the Month

My girlfriend and I are looking at a cheesecake to bake. I think that this Ultimate Blueberry Cheesecake might be a strong contender.
