Berries Cheesecake (Microwave)

If there is an appliance I hardly ever use for actually cooking food, it is my microwave. These Microwave Berries Cheesecake in individual servings were a first in a long time.

I mainly use my microwave for making white sauce (or cheese sauce) as I can not for the life of me make it on the stove top !

My daughter is the opposite again, stove top for her when making the sauces. 

Other than that I only use the microwave for re-heating food.  Since I am taking care of my granddaughter, she is just over 3 months now, I also use it to sterilize her bottles etc.

After trying this recipe, which I found in a dairy brand’s booklet, I decided to use my microwave more. 

Actually went as far as buying a brand spanking new microwave !  But, I have to admit, my old one was around 15 plus years old.

I am definitely going to make more dishes using the microwave, even if it is only the dessert.

Anyhow, back to the recipe ! The first batch I made, I used too small serving dishes and the filling boiled over.

What a mess ! However, lesson learned and now I know not to fill the dish more than two thirds. Leave at least a third open at the top. You can always add more fruit, or a variety of Berries.

Once the Berries Cheesecake bowls cooled down, I covered them in plastic cling wrap and into the refrigerator.

Make-Ahead friendly cheesecake recipe !

This also means the Cheesecakes are perfect to make ahead (even a day or three should be fine). As long as you then keep them covered with plastic cling wrap.

This was also the first time I made cheesecake which did not actually have any cream cheese as the main ingredient. Yogurt instead is the main ingredient and I believe it is more commonly known as a yogurt cheesecake.
