Tips For Making The Perfect Keto Cheesecake

Use Room Temperature Ingredients

Almost every cheesecake recipe calls for “room temperature” cream cheese – but I recommend using only room temperature ingredients, so they blend beautifully together and deliver a smooth and creamy cheesecake filling.

If you forgot to soften cream cheese here’s what you can do: Add your cream cheese bricks in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 20-30—second until softened, but not hot.

Use full-fat cream cheese (around 33% fat) and sour cream. Philadelphia is the best cream cheese for cheesecake

Take It Easy On The Eggs

Avoid overbeating the egg because it can ruin your cheesecake.

Overmixing can cause cracks due to too much air incorporated into the mixture. Stop mixing from time to time to scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl to make sure there are no lumps.

Don’t Open The Oven!

Try not to open the oven door during baking the cheesecake. It can cause cracks.

Avoid Over-Baking The Keto Cheesecake

How do I know if the Keto Cheesecake is cooked? Well, the middle should be set but “jiggly” and have a pale color. I bake it for about 50-60 minutes at a very low temperature. Overbaking is another cause of cracking which we are trying to avoid.

Cool It Correctly

It’s extremely important to cool the cheesecake at room temperature before moving to the fridge. This can take between an hour or two. The extreme temperature change can make cracks in the cheesecake,

How To Store Low Carb Keto Cheesecake?

Always store the keto cheesecake in the fridge for up to one week.

Can I Freeze the Keto Cheesecake?

This keto cheesecake is freezer friendly because it is made using full-fat cream cheese. Wrap it tightly with plastic wrap and keep it in the freezer for 2-3 months.

When you are ready to serve, let it thaw in the fridge overnight, and consume within 2 days. I prefer freezing individual slices.

Ingredients


For the crust

For the filling

  • 5 (8oz ea.) packages full-fat cream cheese  room temperature
  • cups  Powdered Erythritol
  • Large Eggs room temperature
  • oz.  Sour cream  room temperature
  • tbsp  Vanilla Extract

Instructions


  • Preheat the oven to 325F / 160C.  Adjust the rack to the middle of the oven.

Crust

  • In a medium bowl combine the almond flour and powdered sweetener. Add in the melted butter and vanilla extract. Use a spatula or a fork to combine well the ingredients.
  • Pour the crust mixture into a 9″ springform pan and press firmly into the bottom and halfway up the sides using a spatula or your fingers. Refrigerate the keto crust for 20 minutes.

Keto Cheesecake

  • In a large mixing bowl, add the softened cream cheese and beat with a hand mixer until smooth and fluffy, scraping the sides if necessary.
  • Turn the mixer to a lower speed and add in the powdered sweetener little by little.
  • Add the eggs one by one and stir until just incorporated.
  • Incorporate the sour cream and vanilla extract. Use a spatula to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl.
  • Pour the cheesecake batter over the crust and even out the top using a spatula.
  • Transfer to the preheated oven and bake for about 50-55 minutes. You know it’s ready when the edges have a pale brown color, and the center is firm but “jiggly” like jello.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool at room temperature for about one hour before transferring to the refrigerator. Refrigerate overnight or at least 6hours before serving. Enjoy!

  1. Hi, I am going to bake the cheesecake but could not find at what temperature it is to be baked. Could you please advise me on the temp. Thank you.

    1. I’m not sure how that one line instruction went missing. I updated the post! You should bake the cheesecake at 325F for about 50-60 minutes. Thank you!

      1. Hi there, Sylvia! You can find the recipe for the raspberry topping on this blog, just search “raspberry sauce” 🙂

    1. Yes, you can use a smaller cheesecake pan. You’ll probably end up with leftover cheesecake batter. But that’s no problem because you can use it to make some crustless mini cheesecakes.
