Medium Sized Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake

Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake | Perfect for Spring + Summer

A lemon cheesecake with a classic graham cracker crust, all topped with a sweet blueberry compote (fancy word for cooked fruit in syrup). These babies are perfect for spring or summer, not only because of the fresh lemony taste but also because blueberries are in season from April till September here in the states.

So, making these are pretty simple! You press the crust into the bottoms, whip the cheesecake filling together, top the crusts, and bake. Refrigerate until chilled and top with the blueberry compote {that is 3 ingredients and takes 3 minutes to make}. Ready to make Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake?

Main Ingredients Needed

10 ingredients and a bit of effort yields such great results! Here is everything you’ll need to make a Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake:

  • Graham Cracker Crumbs, Butter + Sugar – these three come together to create the crust. The sugar sweetens while the melted butter holds the crust together.
  • Cream Cheese – tangy creaminess which is the main ingredient in the cheesecake mixture.
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk – this sweetens and thickens the mixture.
  • Sugar – to sweeten some more!
  • Eggs – this adds structure and richness.
  • Vanilla – to flavor.
  • Lemon Juice + Zest – both are used to flavor the cheesecake with fresh zingy flavor.

Feel free to add blueberries into the filling before baking!

For the Blueberry Compote

  • Blueberries – use fresh or frozen blueberries. If using frozen you may need a splash of water.
  • Lemon Juice – this brightens the sauce.
  • Sugar – to sweeten! Use as much or as little as you’d like.

How to Make Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake

For full details on how to make Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake, see the recipe card down below 🙂

1. Preheat + Prep

Preheat oven. Lightly grease individual cheesecake pans with nonstick cooking spray and set them aside. {My pans were 4 x 1 1/4 inches}.

2. Make Crust

In a small bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter together until thoroughly moistened. Divide evenly among the cheesecake pans and press into the bottom and up the sides.

3. Make Lemon Cheesecake Filling

In a large mixing bowl, whip cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk together until combined. {If the cream cheese isn’t at room temperature, you will have lumps! Beware!} Scrape sides and mix again to ensure the mixture is smooth. With the mixer on low, stir in granulated sugar, eggs {one at a time}, vanilla extract, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Scrape sides and mix again.

4. Bake + Cool

Spoon cheesecake filling evenly into prepared crusts and smooth the tops. Bake until the filling has set. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature. Transfer to refrigerator to chill completely.

5. Make Blueberry Compote

In the meantime, stir blueberries, lemon juice, and sugar together in a small pot. Place on high heat and stir until sugar crystals dissolve and a purple sauce has formed. Remove from heat and store in an airtight container until ready to serve.

6. Serve!

To serve, unlatch sides of cheesecake pans and remove. If desired, remove bottoms as well. Place onto plates and top with blueberry compote.

Can I Use a Regular Sized Springform Pan?

Yes, you can use a regular-sized springform pan for this recipe! I originally made 8 individual 4 x 1.25 inch cheesecakes but a 9- or 10-inch springform pan works too. Just note that the batter might not fully fill the pan, resulting in a shorter cheesecake. The baking time is also going to increase (40-50 minutes).

    This looks lovely. I’m making it for my sister in law’s birthday . I wondered how many small pans you used or what size spring form pan it would fit in.
    I just discovered your blog through face book and am having fun looking at all your recipes and figuring out what i want to make. i did make the cheese sticks the other day. yum. I am a fellow lemon lover. give me lemon over chocolate any day. So thanks for all your inspiration.

    I have been wanting to make this for ages but just havent been able to bring myself to purchase individual pans. Any idea if it would work all together in a springform?

  9. Rebecca

    I’m going to hope this fits in a standard springform, haven’t been able to figure it out but I’m making it just for fun so why not
