Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake Bread


Cheesecake bread with raspberry jam! A light and delicious quick loaf cake which looks and tastes amazing too.

This post was to make up for a disappointing cheesecake I had recently. I love cheesecake and it’s one of my favourite desserts, however I’m not a fan of cream or Bailey’s, so a Bailey’s cheesecake that tasted like cream wasn’t my favourite of desserts.

To fill you in a little more, I had my ball recently for my course. It’s one of the highlights of the year where everyone dresses up in beautiful dresses and we have a three course meal with free wine and small chocolates or sweets on the table and then we are treated to a three course meal before a small ‘awards’ ceremony by the Pharmacy society for various things like power couple of the year or gymshark.

Then we have a live band and music before afters at a bar. It’s a lovely night and something I look forward to, however it’s hard cooking for a large amount of meal and appealing to everyone, so sometimes the food can be hit or miss with people. I enjoyed the vegetable soup and the chicken was alright, but seeing as I don’t like coffee, Bailey’s or plain cream, the cheesecake wasn’t what I enjoyed.


Such a shame as I forever proclaim my love for cheesecake.

However, this one made up for it ten times over and I had an amazing night and raspberry cheesecake bread for the next day.

This is pretty straightforward, just mix the various batters and then scrape into a load pan and then swirl around with a toothpick or fork and swirl in the jam and then bake.


Like a normal cheesecake, allow to chill for a few hours to let the cheesecake filling set and then slice and serve.

Oh and cover with foil after 20 minutes to prevent overbrowning, but otherwise this one’s easy in all the best ways 🙂

A strawberry jam would also be nice here. Feel free to substitute another jam if desired. Cover with foil after 20 minutes to prevent overbrowning.
