elderflower cheesecake

img_7424Elderflower is something very Swedish (from where my family originates), and one of my favorite flavors during summer. It’s fresh and just wonderful. This cheesecake was the desert during a family dinner, and there was barley anything left after… It tastes delicious; it’s a little sour and a perfect ending to a dinner. It has the perfect level in between sweet and sour. PS Elderflower concentrate can be bought at IKEA.



For the crust:

 12 digestive biscuits

100 g butter / 9/10 of one stick butter


4 Gelatin leaves

250grams / 8.8 ounces of curd

250 grams / 8.8 ounces of Vanilla curd

4 dl/ 1.6 cups of sour cream

2.5 dl / 0.8 cups of Elderflower concentrate

1.5 dl/ 0.6 cups of icing sugar

1/2 lemon, juice and peel


Fresh strawberries 



  1. Heat the oven to 175°C/ 350 Fahrenheit, mix all the ingredients to the crust in a mixer and put in a thin with removable edges. Bake in the oven for 10- 15 min. Let cool.
  2. Let the gelatin leaves soak in cold water for 5 min.
  3. Boil all ingredients for the filling together, except the gelatin leaves, in a pot, whisk until even.
  4. Let the gelatin leaves melt into the mix while whisking lightly.
  5. Let cool, pour over the crust and put the cheesecake in the fridge for at least 4 h before serving. Garnish with fresh strawberries.
  6. Enjoy!

      Thank you 😊 gelatin leaves are often called gelatin sheets ( depending on ones country) it can be substituted with gelatin powder. 1 tbsp gelatin powder = 3 gelatin leaves or sheets 🙂
