Baked Triple Berry Cheesecake Recipe

This is a different kind of cheesecake - when it bakes, the cheesecake filling mixes with berries and makes the batter beautifully moist.

It’s great when there is a great selection of fresh berries at very reasonable prices this time of the year! I had some strawberries, blueberries and raspberries in the fridge, so I thought that I will create a recipe, combining the basics of making a coffee cake and cheesecake and add the berries. The result was better than I thought. Yes – I do have to admit that there are times I “create” recipes and the results are…. well – not so good. But this one is an exception – very moist and deliciously tasty. Try it – you will love it!

Baked Triple Berry Cheesecake



  • 1-1/2 cups of flour
  • 2 envelopes of Fleishman’s RapidRise yeast
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • 2/3 cup of milk (very warm – 120F)
  • ¼ cup of butter, melted
  • 1 egg

Berry Sauce:

  • 1 cup of blueberries
  • 1 cup of strawberries (cut into smaller pieces)
  • 1 cup of raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon of corn starch
  • 2 tablespoons of cold water
  • 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract

Cheesecake mix:

  • 1 package (8 oz.) of cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of corn starch
  • ½ teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • 1 egg


Prepare your berries – cleaning and washing them gently and cutting strawberries into smaller pieces

Fresh berries are easy to get now and this is a very good use for them - if you want to use frozen berries, make sure you drain them well and reduce liquids you use as well

Mix all batter ingredients together in a medium bowl. Let mixture rest while preparing the sauce and cheesecake mix.

All dry ingredients get mixed together first, then add the liquid ones and let the better rest while preparing the berry sauce and cheesecake filling

This is what the batter looks like after all ingredients are gently mixed together

To make sauce, mix berries together gently with all other sauce ingredients in a cooking pan. Bring to boil and cook for couple of minutes, until sauce thickens.

Making the triple berry sauce is quick and easy - make sure you mix it gently while cooking so that you don;t end up with mashed up berries

To make cheesecake mix, combine all recipe ingredients and mix with electric mixer until smooth

Having the cream cheese at room temperature will keep it soft and easy to mix with all remaining cheesecake ingredients

Use electric mixer to make the cheesecake filling - mine looks a bit darker then it should - I used more vanilla than the recipe calls for

Transfer batter into baking pan that you sprayed with non-stick cooking or baking spray

Spread the batter evenly into a baking dish (I used glass one but you can use metal one) that is sprayed with non stick baking spray

Top the batter with dollops of cheesecake mixture and berry sauce. Swirl mixture together using butter knife

Drop cheesecake filling in spoonfuls over the batter first and then do the same with the berry sauce. Run butter knife through several times and get the cheesecake filling and berries into the batter

Bake at 350F for 40-45 minutes or until the cheesecake is set.

This is what my triple berry cheesecake looked like when it was finished baking - when cut, every piece had a generous amount of berries and cheese filling - yummy!

Serve this cheesecake warm with French Vanilla ice cream and you will have a hit for sure!
