Why Make Cheesecake In Instant Pot

I enjoy making cheesecakes in my instant pot because it is a really fast and easy method that I don’t really have to put a lot of work into. Basically, you prepare the cheesecake, cook it in the instant pot, and let it sit up in the fridge overnight. It’s pretty much effortless and saves you a lot of time. Plus, the creaminess that you get from cooking a cheesecake in the instant pot is one of the best things you’ll ever taste.  

Storing Cheesecake 

Red velvet cheesecake, you will need to be sure that it has cooled down after cooking. After it’s cooked, you’ll place it in the refrigerator overnight. The cheesecake will actually last in the refrigerator for up to four days.

Can you Freeze Leftover Red Velvet Cheesecake?

Yes, absolutely, you can freeze this leftover red velvet cheesecake. You can either slice it up individually and store each piece of cake, or you can keep the entire cheesecake. Wrap it up with a piece of plastic wrap then place the cheesecake inside of a freezer container. It will last in the freezer for up to three months. 

Topping Ideas for Cheesecake 

I like to add a ganache on top of the cheesecake, along with chocolate whipped cream. However, you could also sprinkle the top of the cake with crushed Oreos, mini chocolate chips, or white chocolate chips. All of those ideas would be absolutely delicious and be the perfect way to add some elegance to your red velvet cheesecake. 

What Does Natural Release Mean 

A natural lease means that you let the pressure in the instant pot release on its own. Sometimes this can take 15 or 20 minutes to complete a natural release. You will know in the natural release is done once you hear your instant pot beep. Then you’ll be able to remove the lid from your instant pot. Alternatively, a quick-release means that you physically remove the pressure from the instant pot by switching the valve to the venting position using a wooden spoon or kitchen towel.
