When you get the chance to make one, the baked cheesecake can be one of the most amazing desserts, especially when it’s custard flavoured with raspberry coulis whirls and a custard cream buttery biscuit base.
This is the most creamiest baked cheesecake you will ever taste. The custard powder in the recipe gives the cheesecake a texture between a custard tart and a baked cheesecake. It’s honestly a really easy cheesecake to make and is not as difficult to make as you might think either! If you follow my easy recipe step by step it will create the perfect baked cheesecake every time. You literally can’t go wrong!

The baked cheesecakes have a bit of a bad reputation compared to their no bake counterpart. No bake cheesecakes are quick & easy to make, with a light whipped creamy texture and always a guaranteed hit. Put a little time and effort into making a baked cheesecake though, and you will create something so wonderful people will literally be begging you for the recipe! The baked cheesecakes tend to have a slightly heavier texture, this custard cheesecake recipe is much lighter and creamier. I whole heartedly recommend you give it a try for yourself and see!
Top Tips for Making The Perfect Baked Cheesecake!
- Bring all of the ingredients to room temperature. This is particularly important of the cream cheese as it’s much easier to beat until creamy & smooth.
- Does your baked cheesecake always crack on top? When the cooking time is finished, switch the oven off, open the door ajar and let it cool on the shelf for 10 minutes. Then remove from the oven and allow to cool fully in the tin before removing.
- Bake your base a little before adding the filling to prevent a soggy bottom. (In this recipe I recommend 8 minutes at 160°C fan until golden.)
- Always use a springform pan when baking a cheesecake. It makes it so much easier to remove from the tin. The finished baked cheesecake is also delicate and you don’t want it to crack.
