Variations To Recipe

Strawberries, blueberries, and even blackberries would all go perfectly in this cheesecake recipe. Additionally, you can swap out the graham crackers for any of your favorite cookies.

Vanilla wafers, Oreos, or any other cookie that you think would make a good crust would work. You could also add chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, or crushed candy bars to the cheesecake as well. Another fun option would be to melt some white chocolate and drizzle it over the cheesecake right before serving.

It’s a fun way to add some extra charm and elegance to this recipe.

Tips For Making Cheesecake In Instant Pot 

I know it can be a little bit intimidating, making cheesecake in your instant pot for the first time. So I have a few tips to help you get started, so you can have the best results possible.

The most and important thing is to make sure that you adequately cover the cheesecake before you begin cooking it. You can cover it with a piece of aluminum foil, and that will work perfectly. You just don’t want water or condensation to fall onto the actual cheesecake. So after you remove the lid of the instant pot, you want to make sure to dry it off before you take the cheesecake out of the pan. 

Another very and important step is to make sure to let the cheesecake sit in the refrigerator overnight. I know it can be very tempting, and you’ll want to eat the cheesecake right away, but it’s so and essential to let it set up all the way. Keeping it cold in the refrigerator is the number one way to help the cheesecake set up properly. 

Storing Cheesecake 

This instant pot raspberry cheesecake needs to be refrigerated. You should never let any kind of cheesecake sit out for longer than 2 hours at a time. If you do, bacteria will start to grow, and the cheesecake will begin to spoil. If the cheesecake is ever going to be sitting out for longer than 2 hours, your best bet is to keep the cheesecake on ice. The cheesecake will last in the refrigerator for 4 to 5 days.

Does Raspberry Cheesecake Freeze Well

Yes, you can easily freeze this raspberry cheesecake recipe. You’ll need to wrap up the cheesecake and place it in an airtight container. The cheesecake will last in the freezer for up to three months. You can thaw it in the refrigerator before serving or eat it frozen for an extra-special treat.

How to Make Instant Pot Raspberry Cheesecake

2. Run the raspberry mixture through a strainer to remove any seeds. Then set the raspberry sauce aside.

2. Take a large bowl and combine the melted butter and crushed graham crackers. 

3. Carefully push the crust into the springform pan. I how found it is easiest to do this by using the back of a measuring, glass, or your fingers.

Vanilla cheesecake Directions:

1. Whisk the sugar and cornstarch together in a small bowl until well-combined.

4. Add in the vanilla bean extract. 

5. Pour the cheesecake batter into the crust. 

Building and baking the cheesecake:

1. Take one fourth of the raspberry sauce and poured it on top of the cheesecake. Swirl it lightly with a fork. Then cover tightly with aluminum foil. 

2. Add the trivet to the instant pot. 

3. Pour in 1 and 1/2 cups of water into the instant pot. 

4. Carefully lower the cheesecake on to the trivet and put the lid on the instant pot. 

5. Turn the instant pot on to the manual high pressure position and cook for 34 minutes. 

6. After the cheesecake is done, cooking allow it to complete a natural release. 

7. Place the cheesecake on the countertop after it is cooked so it can cool all the way down properly. 

8. Keep the cheesecake in the refrigerator overnight to allow it to set up properly. 

9. When you’re ready to serve the cheesecake, add fresh whipped cream topping, raspberries, and mint to the top.
