Best Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake Recipe


Welcome to another delicious adventure! Today, we are going to immerse ourselves in the delightful world of cheesecake. But not just any cheesecake, we’re making a Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake. This is a splendid dessert that beautifully marries the creamy richness of cheesecake with the sweet-tart twist of raspberries. Let’s start!


For this recipe, you will need:

  • 225 grams (8 ounces) of digestive biscuits or graham crackers
  • 110 grams (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted
  • 900 grams (32 ounces) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 250 grams (1 1/4 cups) granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 120 ml (1/2 cup) sour cream
  • 300 grams (2 cups) fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 100 grams (1/2 cup) granulated sugar (for raspberry sauce)


  1. Crush the biscuits or graham crackers until fine. Combine with the melted butter and press into a 9-inch springform pan. Bake at 180°C (350°F) for about 10 minutes, then let cool.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Gradually add the sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, and sour cream. Make sure to mix well after each addition.
  3. To make the raspberry sauce, combine the raspberries and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook until the raspberries break down and the sauce thickens. Let it cool, then strain to remove the seeds.
  4. Pour half of the cheesecake filling onto the crust, then spoon half of the raspberry sauce on top. Use a knife to create swirls. Repeat with the remaining cheesecake filling and raspberry sauce.
  5. Bake at 170°C (325°F) for about 1 hour, or until the edges are set and the center is slightly jiggly. Let it cool in the oven with the door slightly open to prevent cracking.
  6. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight, before serving.


  • Ensure all your ingredients are at room temperature before you start. This ensures a smoother, creamier texture for your cheesecake.
  • Don’t skip straining the raspberry sauce. The seeds can create a gritty texture in your cheesecake.
  • Remember, patience is key when making cheesecake. Don’t rush the cooling and chilling process.


And there you have it! A decadent Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake that is sure to impress. Remember, the beauty of cooking is in the journey, not just the destination. Don’t fret if your first attempt isn’t perfect, practice makes perfect. Enjoy the process and, most importantly, the delicious result!
