Baked Cheesecake with Blueberries

This cheesecake is made upon request from my daughter when she was reading her Geronimo Stilton - The Quest for Paradise book. There in the middle if the book was a cheesecake recipe! Actually not surprised because cheese is a mouse favourite food!

Here is the original recipe 

I have reduced and replaced the ingredients
