Cheesecake in a pressure cooker? Yes it is. A creamy cheesecake relies on beating lots of air into the mixture before cooking it. It also requires steaming. When you bake a cheesecake in the oven, you also need to put a tray of hot water underneath the tin to ensure the top of the cheesecake does not crack. In an Instant Pot®, all you need is a little water and the trivet. The result is a decadent cheesecake with no fuss. Serve with fruit on top, such as ripe blackberries.
This recipe calls for a 15cm springform tin (or loose bottomed cake tin), but a 17.5cm tin should also fit the largest Instant Pot® size.
