How to Make Apple Cheesecake
Crust | The first thing you will do is work on your almond flour-based crust. Mix it up and press down into your springform or push pan that fits your Instant Pot.
Apple Cheesecake Filling | Mix up your base cheesecake filling making sure to not overmix. Pour into the pan on top of the crust. Cover tightly and pressure cook.
Cool and Refrigerate | Once your apple cheesecake is cooked, remove and allow to cool for an hour. Then cover and refrigerator for at least 6 hours to overnight to set up the cheesecake.
Apple Cinnamon Topping | Now you will work on your apple topping and sauce and decorate the cheesecake. Then slice and serve up your apple cinnamon cheesecake.
What makes cheesecake fall?
Cheesecakes can fall from overmixing the batter or having too much air in the cheesecake. Once you add the eggs to the batter it is important to not overmix.
Why do you put eggs in cheesecake?
Eggs act as a thickening agent that gives you that creamy texture you enjoy from cheesecake. Without the eggs, in the cheesecake, the whole cheesecake wouldn't be the right texture and hold together the way you want.
Do you need a water bath for cheesecake for pressure cooker cheesecake?
For this pressure cooker cheesecake, you will add water into the pressure cooker. Liquid has to be used in the Instant Pot, as that is what brings the pressure cooker to pressure.
Now, you will sit your cheesecake on a trivet, as you do not want your cheesecake to be submerged in the water in your pressure cooker.
Is cheesecake still jiggly when done?
You will find if you gently shake your cheesecake and just the center wiggles slightly the cheesecake is done. It will be around a 2 inch section, and you don't want any liquid to show when you jiggle.
If the cheesecake jiggles anymore than that, you will want to re-cover and re-pressure cook for another 5 minutes or so.
Is it okay if my cheesecake cracks?
Cheesecake cracks happen, and while they might not provide a stunning presentation, they are fine. It just means that you have either over-baked or air released as it baked.
With this recipe, you top with apples and glaze, so that it will hide any imperfections of your cheesecake.
