Divine (dairy-free) Cheesecake with Raspberry Sauce, from "The Cheese Trap"

Raspberry Dessert Sauce

Servings 1 cups


  • 3 cups fresh or frozen raspberries see note
  • 3 - 4 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • few pinches sea salt


  • Put berries, maple syrup (starting with 3 tbsp), vanilla, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring mixture to a slow boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and let cook for 15-20 minutes, until raspberries have softened and sauce has thickened slightly.  Taste, and add additional maple syrup if desired.  Serve sauce warm or cool (sauce will thicken more after cooling). Serve over “Divine Cheesecake”, p..

Note: If you’d like to substitute other berries like blueberries or chopped strawberries, go for it!
