Baked Blackberry Ricotta Cheesecake

I had ricotta leftover from this savory recipe that I needed to use. I hate wasting ingredients. Therefore, I made a Classic Ricotta Pound cake but wanted a new ricotta dessert. That’s when I decided on this simple lighter cheesecake recipe.

Baked Blackberry Ricotta Cheesecake has a creamy filling, and fresh fruit. This combo makes this dessert irresistible!

The combination of creamy ricotta filling and fresh, juicy blackberries makes this lighter dessert irresistible. As well, this cheesecake is easy, smooth, and sensational. The texture is perfectly silky, not what you’d expect from ricotta. The fruit adds just a hint of flavor without taking away from the actual cheesecake.

  1. What is ricotta? Ricotta is an Italian whey cheese that’s made from sheep milk whey left over from the production of cheese. As well, this is creamy, white, mild, and fresh cheese with a soft texture and a slightly sweet flavor.
  2. If you don’t have agave nectar, you can substitute honey in this recipe.
  3. I made mini-cheesecakes because I just love individual portions. They’re great for entertaining and portion control. As well, you could make this recipe in a 6 or 8-inch springform pan. In that case, I would bake at 400º F for 45 minutes. At 45 minutes, start watching the cake. You’ll want the center to be slightly ‘jiggly’. The top should not be brown.
  4. Finally, you can substitute raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, mangos or peaches for the blackberries.
