I love a creamy cheesecake. It is one of my favorite desserts. I love finding new ways to make it. Using a brownie mix to create the crust of this cheesecake is pure heaven.

Ingredients

  • Brownie mix envelope
  • Canola oil
  • Water
  • Eggs
  • Cream cheese
  • Flour
  • Sour cream
  • Vanilla extract
  • Semi sweet chocolate chips
  • Heavy whipping cream
  • Powder sugar

How to Make a Brownie Bottom Cheesecake in the Instant Pot

Prepare a 7 inch springform pan with cooking spray and parchment paper.
Mix the brownie batter together and take about 1/4 cup out to use for later.
Pour the brownie batter into the springform pan.
Mix together the cream cheese and sugar in a bowl until it is smooth and creamy.
Mix in the eggs, one at a time, until it is well combined.
Add in the flour, sour cream and vanilla and mix until combined.
Pour the cheesecake into the pan and top with the reserved brownie batter.
Using a knife, swirl the two batters together.
Cover the pan with foil.
Place the trivet inside the Instant Pot and add 1 1/2 cups of water.
Place the pan on top of the trivet and close and seal the lid.
Cook on manual high heat for 35 minutes and then allow for a natural release.
Remove the cheesecake from the Instant Pot and allow it to cool on a wire rack.
Place the cheesecake into the fridge to cool overnight.
The next day, make the ganache.
Bring the heavy whipping cream to a simmer in a saucepan.
Pour the chocolate chips into a glass bowl and add the heated heavy cream. Let it sit for 2 minutes.
Whisk it together until creamy and smooth and then spoon it over the cheesecake. Spread it evenly with a spatula.
Spoon onto the top of the cheesecake and spread evenly with the spatula.
Place the cheesecake into the fridge to harden.
Using a mixer, beat together the heavy whipped cream and powder sugar until it is well combined and forms stiff peaks.
Scoop the whipped cream into the piping bag and pipe dollops around the edge of the cheesecake.

Sprinkle chocolate sprinkles around the edge of the cheesecake.

How do I Know the Cheesecake is Done Cooking?

When you are close to the end of the baking time, check the cheesecake. There should a slight jiggle in the center. If the cheesecake is solid and has no jiggle, then the cheesecake is overbaked.

Can I Freeze This Instant Pot Cheesecake?

Once the cheesecake is cooled, you can take some of the slices and freeze them so you have this Brownie Bottom Cheesecake whenever you want it. After slicing the cheesecake, you can wrap each slice in parchment paper and wrap it in plastic wrap. I like to place the cheesecake in a freezer bag for added protection and to keep them all together in one place.
