Instant Pot Cheesecake – Two Ways

Are you ready for cheesecake?

This recipe uses keto friendly ingredients but you definitely do not have to make it keto friendly.

AND the best part, you get New York style and a chocolate lover’s delight in one delicious recipe. Perfect, right?

Instant Pot Cheesecake–Two Ways Recipe by Author Terra Kelly

I’m so excited to share this recipe because I love making cheesecake. If you’ve read my books before, then you know all about the special cheesecake Izzy made for Drew in Hard To Resist (The Winters Family Book One). The Please Forgive Me cheesecake is simply irresistible. Are you curious now?

First, let’s chat about the instant pot cheesecake.

I first learned about instant pot cheesecake one year ago for my birthday. Since whipping up the first batch we have made this recipe four more times. It is that good. Plus, it’s really easy to make.

Fast forward to January 2020, it’s time for another birthday and of course, another cake. Hubby requested we switch things up and make a chocolate version of our favorite cheesecake. I went a little crazy and even added chocolate ganache for the occasion.

Holy cats, both versions are AMAZING!

Like I said earlier, you don’t have to make this keto friendly. You can add your favorite sugar. The sugar is the biggest difference to traditional style cheesecake. Well, that and the fact that we also cook it in an instant pot.

NOTE: The pan I used is six inches in diameter. I have a springform pan and one where the bottom separates from the sides. We found one on Amazon and the other at Sur La Table kitchen supply store. Either pan will work with this recipe.
