Welcome to my best ever Philips Airfryer Blueberry Cheesecake. We love cheesecake. I mean what is there not to love? You have delicious fresh blueberries, Philadelphia soft cheese, a crunchy base and a sweet flavour. Then you cook it your Philips Airfryer inside a spring form pan and you have a plateful of perfection.
But sadly blueberries are often not in season and expensive. But right now they are right in season in Portugal, full of deliciousness and great for a quick cheesecake in your Airfryer.
If you love cheesecake, patiently wait until blueberries are in season and make this!
The main person behind this recipe is our 15 year old (now that makes me feel ancient) son. He is brilliant at cooking and has a natural ability. I can imagine him wowing the girls with his cooking skills when he is older and makes me a brilliant pancake on a Sunday morning for breakfast.
His clearing up skills don’t have the same standards though and I must spend ages clearing up afterwards. But just to see how well he is progressing in the kitchen is worth it.
Plus quite often with kids they learn their skills from their parents. When his mum is a food blogger (and always trying new things) and your dad used to be a chef, there happens to be a lot of cooking going on.
We have cooked with Kyle since he was a baby and he loves to help with the cooking and will often be beside me when I am making brand new things. I remember the first time he made a cheese sauce with me, the first time he tossed a pancake and I will never forget the first time he made pasta.
All of these amazing memories in the kitchen!
Now he has also mastered the art of a blueberry cheesecake and you can test his recipe yourself with your own kids. And if you have an Airfryer then even better as the spring form pan can slot straight in and it is so simple!Best Ever #PhilipsAirfryer Blueberry #Cheesecake #Recipe via recipe_thisClick To Tweet
Preheat your Airfryer to 180c.
Flour the sides and bottom of your spring form pan so that when you cook your cheesecake that it wont stick.
Crumble the digestive biscuits and mix them with the melted butter. Push them down into the bottom of the spring form pan so that they form the base.
Cream the cheese and the sugar together with a hand mixer until they are light but incredibly thick and fluffy.
Add the eggs (one at a time), the Greek Yoghurt, vanilla essence and mix everything as you put it in.
Chop the blueberries into quarters. Place a quarter of them into the soft cheese mixture and mix well.
Using a big spoon (I used a soup spoon) spoon the mixture into the spring form pan and use a spatula to flatten any bubbles and to give it a very smooth feeling.
Place in the Airfryer and cook at 180c for 15 minutes, 160c for 10 minutes and then a further 15 minutes at 150c. This will ensure that it cooked everywhere and not just on the top.
When the Airfryer beeps, place it into the fridge and allow to cool for 12 hours.
Once cooled take the rest of the blueberries and cook them in a pan with a little icing sugar and once they are melted down to half their size, spoon over the cheesecake for the top layer.
This recipe is based on cooking it in a 10 inch spring form pan (using this one) in an XL Airfryer so if you have a smaller airfryer or spring form pan then please adjust timings.
Some Airfyers operate a low, medium and large settings. If this is the case replace 180c with high, 160c with medium and 150c with low.
Please note – fresh blueberries will always taste best in a blueberry cheesecake. If you are using frozen please add an extra tablespoon of honey to make way for the change in flavour.
