Elderberry syrup is an unusual ingredient for our desserts. In Ukraine, it is used mainly for making lemonades and cocktails. But in Great Britain, elderberry syrup is used to make cakes, especially after the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan.



I promise: once you taste cheesecake with elderberry syrup, it will become a permanent ingredient in your desserts.


The recipe is designed for two molds of 10 cm in diameter and 8 cm in height. Forms should be wrapped in foil.

Ingredients for the base

Crush the cookies, mix with butter, divide into two molds and form the bottom of the cheesecake.

Bake for 1 hour at 140 degrees. Turn off the oven and leave the cheesecakes in the molds for another hour to gradually cool.

Remove from the oven and let cool completely at room temperature. Place in the refrigerator for at least 5 hours to stabilize.
