This recipe for Thermomix Blackberry cheesecake is for anyone with a Thermomix but it can easily be converted. However we have had some readers ask about my Thermomix as they have spotted it in photos of my kitchen. I do not have the most recent version but I am very happy with my one which cooks/chops/mixes extremely well. The Thermomix recipes are always very reliable so I am happy to share this one even though I have not cooked it yet but I will be cooking it later this week. If you are thinking about investing in a Thermomix it is wonderful for steaming some fish and vegetables and cooking rice for a couple of people which can all be done in the baskets provided. I love frying onions in it as it never burns the onions so I often use it to make a tomato sauce base and then freeze it for later use in bolognese sauces etc.
This Thermomix Blackberry cheesecake has a sponge base which is slightly different to a normal cheesecake biscuit base.
