Instant Pot White Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake

HAPPY FRIDAY ALL!

Sorry that I didn't get a chance to post yesterday, my husband and I enjoyed a kid free night out celebrating our Anniversary! However, I do have a special little recipe from the occasion. 

It's funny because I think my husband is starting to become more addicted to the Instant Pot than me.. but that's OK! Especially when he surprises me with beautiful chocolate creations like he did yesterday!

I got to give him credit here, this one was entirely his recipe. He did some digging on the Internet and put together his own twist to a few different Cheesecake recipes and the results were simply AMAZING. Not only that, he watched some YouTube videos ( I think this is his link here?  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Ni5z7E7_3E ) and figured out how to do these cute little Strawberry Rose's on top! I was amazed, not only because I didn't think he had the patience for that, but because this might have been the BEST cheesecake I have ever tasted.

  • Hi Grace. Sorry to hear your cheesecake didn’t turn out. Due to the pan being smaller, you had a much thicker cheesecake. Without trying to change the recipe, I would have just stuck it in for 5-minute increments (10-minutes if really soupy) until it was done. It will come back to pressure quicker due to your water temp being hot.

    Peter, you are correct. All of our other cheesecake recipes in the book mention that. We appreciate you bringing that up and will get it noted in this one, too! 😀

  • I made this in 7 " pan and middle wasn’t done. How should I have changed the recipe. I do not have 8 " oan. Will 8" fit in the eight qt. I was using my 6 qt instant pot. Thank you. Even with middle not set. It was still good. Thank you.

  • Sounds good, only one comment. The cheesecake should come to room temp, then to the refrigerator. If you put warm/hot things in the refrigerator they can spoil while cooling.
