Blackberry Marble Cheesecake


For this round of the Martha Stewart Cupcake Club (MSCC), we're making Blackberry Marble Cheesecake.  Well, actually it's supposed to be Raspberry Marble Cheesecake.......but when I decided to make this I had all of the ingredients except for raspberries.  So, after rummaging around in the fridge and the pantry, I found a jar of seedless blackberry jam.  Since the raspberries were going to be pureed and swirled into the cheesecake anyways, I figured that using the jam would be a fine substitute.....and it was!  The only difference is that instead of a pretty pink/red swirl, I had a purple swirl....fine by me....I love purple!!

These were really easy to put together.......throw together a quick graham cracker crumb crust and put a tablespoon or so into the bottom of each cupcake liner......bake for a few minutes until set......mix together the cream cheese/sugar/egg mixture......divide evenly between the cupcake liners and swirl in a couple of dots of the blackberry/raspberry mixture.  Then you'll bake them in a water bath.  They came out perfect and were a huge hit at my niece's birthday party!

For the recipe, go to Martha Stewart.....and for the rest of the baker's results, check out the MSCC.......and Enjoy!!

  5. So glad you liked them! I agree I thought they were a delicious cheesecake! I'm so glad you used the jam because I seriously thought about doing that. It would speed up the project a bit if I were in a time crunch! (Which seems to be always :-) Thanks so much for baking with us! Hope to see you next month!

  8. The purple is definitely pretty. And you didn't have to spend $4.99 on the half pint of raspberries... I swear they were upcharging for valentine's day.

  10. These are tempting me. The idea of using blackberry is great. For some reason, that never occurred to me. This is being featured, tomorrow evening, at Bake with Bizzy. Thanks for the inspiration.
