How to Know When Cheesecake Is Done

To know when the cheesecake is done you will gently jiggle the cheesecake. All but just a little jiggle in the center.

Another way to tell is ensure your internal temperature is 150 degrees.

Why Do You Have To Let Cheescake Set Up Overnight

Instant Pot cheesecake takes quite some time to set up. If you want that thick and creamy texture you know and love, then let it cool in the fridge overnight.

This allows your cheesecake to slowly cool down and set the way it should. If you slice into it warm, you will find it can be the wrong texture you expect from cheesecake.

Tips For Making This Pecan Pie Cheesecake

  • Room temperature ingredients are a must.
  • Do not overmix once you begin to incorporate the eggs.
  • Gently tap the pan as you get ready to place it in the instant pot. This will help to release any trapped air bubbles.
  • Allow the cheesecake to naturally release. Do not quick release the pressure in your Instant Pot.
