History of National Blueberry Cheesecake Day

Cheesecake is a rich dessert cake made with cream and soft cheese on a graham cracker, cookie, or pastry shell. Usually, it is topped with a fruit puree or puree.

Every year on May 26th, people across America celebrate National Blueberry Cheesecake Day. Legend has it that blueberry cheesecake was served to athletes at the Olympic Games in Greece. It is a historical dessert that has been continued through the centuries without losing popularity.

While cheesecake can be traced back to ancient Greece, the cheesecake that people eat now is a more recent innovation. People have come up with various interesting flavors for cheesecake, but May 26th is the celebration of the classic blueberry cheesecake.

When cheesecake was brought to different countries, more and more ingredients were added to create a lot of different varieties. While in the US, cream cheese is the main ingredient for cheesecake, Italians prefer ricotta. On the other hand, Germany and Poland use quark, a special type of curd cheese.

As cheesecake became localized over time, bakers came up with newer improvements to it. One of the most popular innovations is the addition of fruit to the cheesecake and perhaps the most delicious of all are the sweet and savory blueberries!

Blueberry cheesecake, too, comes in several varieties. Some of the most unique blueberry cheesecakes include mint blueberry cheesecake, chocolate blueberry cheesecake and kombucha blueberry cheesecake!
