I caught up with some friends in a park recently. Even typing that, I know how lucky I am! One friend brought with her a delicious lemon and blackberry cake. It was so delightful; the combination of the lemon with the blackberries was wonderfully light and it had us reaching for an extra slice.
The blackberries also reminded me of a time when I’d pick blackberries from the tree and eat them until my mouth was stained. I couldn’t tell you whose tree it was though… I honestly can’t remember. But it was fun.
These experiences inspired my selection of a punnet of blackberries from the supermarket, which ultimately led to this recipe. Cheesecake is such a classic and I find that almost everyone enjoys it. This bite-sized dessert is great for casual get-togethers.
