How to Make an Instant Pot Vanilla Cheesecake Recipe

Combine the crumbs and the melted butter together.

Press the crumbs together into a crust and press it up the sides of the springform pans.

Place the pan in the freezer while making the batter.

To make the batter, combine the sugar and cornstarch together in a bowl.

In another bowl, beat together the cream cheese and add the sugar mixture. Beat it until it is smooth.

Add in one egg at a time until it is completely combined.

Then add in the vanilla.

Pour the cheesecake batter into the crust and cover it with foil.

Pour a cup of water in the Instant Pot and then place the trivet inside.

Place the springform pan in the Instant Pot and place the lid on top making sure it is on sealing.

Set the pressure cooker to 40 minutes and allow a 20 minute natural release.

Remove the lid and use a paper towel to remove the condensation.

Remove the pan and allow to cool completely.
Then move the pan to the refrigerator overnight.

The next day melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave.

Beat in the heavy cream until it starts to form soft peaks.

Beat the sugar in and beat until it forms stiff peaks.

In another bowl, beat the cream cheese until it is smooth and then add it to the melted chocolate.

Make the whipped cream and scoop half of it into a piping bag.

Fold in the other half of the whipped cream and spread mixture over the cheesecake.

Refrigerate the cheesecake for 4 hours.

Pipe dollops along the edge of the cheesecake.Instant Pot Vanilla Cheesecake Recipe

Can I Use Vanilla Powder Instead of Vanilla Extract?

You can use vanilla powder instead of vanilla extract. You will need to know the right conversion to replace the extract.

Does This Cheesecake Have Sour Cream?

This cheesecake does not have sour cream in it. I wanted to keep the vanilla flavor strong and the sour cream would slightly compete with the flavor.
