How to Make Instant Pot Orange Creamsicle Cheesecake Step By Step
Step #1: Combine graham cracker crumbs with sugar and melted butter and pat down on the bottom of a 7-inch springform pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
Step #2: Cream together the cream cheese and sugar until smooth and then mix in the eggs one at a time. Mix in the vanilla extract and sour cream until smooth.
Step #3: Pour mixture into springform pan on top of the graham cracker crust.
Step #4: Swirl orange food coloring into the cheesecake batter and run a fork back and forth through the cheesecake several times to remove air bubbles. Cover with foil.
Step #5: Pour two cups of water into the inner pot of the Instant Pot. Make a sling out of aluminum foil to help lower the pan into the pressure cooker.
Step #6: Close the lid of the Instant Pot and turn to sealing position. Set for a manual high-pressure time of 35 minutes. When the time has finished, allow for a natural release for 12 minutes before letting out the rest of the steam.
Step #7: Cool on the counter for an hour and then put in the refrigerator and cool for an additional 4 hours. Then slice, serve & enjoy!
Supplies to Make Instant Pot Cheesecake
- 6-inch by 3-inch Push Pan or 7-inch by 3-inch Push Pan- I recently started using a high push pan instead of a spring-form pan. In my opinion, the cheesecake looks amazing this way.
- Silicone Sling- This is an essential unless you want to make a sling out of foil every time you make a cheesecake or use a pan in the Instant Pot that needs to be lifted out.
- Large Decorating Tips- I used a decorating tip and reusable icing bag to pipe frosting onto the top of the cake. It gives the cake a prettier, more professional style.
- Reusable Decorating Bag- Do yourself a favor and invest in a nice reusable bag for decorating cakes and cupcakes. It works so much better than the disposable bags and is better for the environment. Even better, they are pretty inexpensive.
- Parchment Rounds- Pre-cut parchment rounds (and squares) are available in a variety of sizes depending on your needs. This can be a huge time-saver so you don't have to measure and cut a circle out.
Did you know that unflavored dental floss is a very popular way to cut cheesecake?
Learn how to cut cheesecake with dental floss. Simply slice the cheesecake and let go of one edge of the floss and pull through. It will offer a nice and clean cut each and every time.
This is one of the best ways to cut cheesecake! You will also find there is a cheesecake cutting machine you can buy if you enjoy eating cheesecake a lot.
Did you know you can buy pre-cut parchment paper at your local grocery store or online at Amazon. I find that round parchment paper sheets are best.
How to cut parchment paper for a round pan?
Tear off the parchment paper and then fold it in half.
Then you will find the parchment in half. Repeat and fold the parchment in half again. Then create a triangle shape.
Then do the triangle shape again. Then place it next to the pan and cut with the parchment paper. Unfold it and it will be a round shape to fit your pan.
I am a huge fan of the fat daddio push pan, I find they fit great. You need to buy one that fits into your Instant Pot depending on the size of your pan.
Fat Daddio cheesecake pans come in both push pan and springform styles. They both are removable bottom cake pans. You can also call the pan a cheesecake mold.
The instant pot cheesecake pan generally ranges 6-7 inches. You can also use cheesecake without a springform pan, you just won't be able to slice and serve the cheesecake. Just reach for a cake pan.
You will want to slightly jiggle your cheesecake and see that it is set. The quarter-size in the center of the cheesecake will jiggle just a bit.
If you find it is still extra wiggly, then pressure cooks it another 5-10 minutes.
Here are tips to prevent cracking in your cheesecake. Use room temperature ingredients, don't overmix once you add in the eggs. Make sure to not over-cook your pressure cooker cheesecake.
