Can I make this Cheesecake in the Oven?

Yes! The instant pot definitely makes the process of making a cheesecake easier and provides more consistent results, but you can still bake this cheesecake in the oven if desired!

To adjust the instructions for baking, you will need to bake your crust in the oven at 350 degrees F for 8 minutes instead of freezing it.

For an oven-baked cheesecake you need to be really careful about the filling, and only mix until the ingredients are combined. Oven baking a cheesecake is less forgiving, and over-mixing will result in a cracked and/or deflated cheesecake.

The next adjustment is making the water bath. You will need to start with pouring in 1 inch of boiling water into a large roasting pan.

You still need to wrap aluminum foil around your springform pan. Place the pan with your prepared cheesecake inside of the roasting pan, then pour in your boiling water. Carefully place in the oven and bake for 55-70 minutes or until the center is almost set.

Turn the oven off and open the oven door slightly. Leave the cheesecake in the oven as it cools down for about 1 hour.

Then remove and allow the cheesecake to completely, uncovered at room temperature.

Then refrigerate overnight.

How to know when the Cheesecake is Done

Although the directions in the recipe should reliably results in a perfectly cooked cheesecake, there are a number of factors than can affect cook time.

When the cheesecake is done, the outside should appear set with a small 2-inch circle that jiggles in the middle. 

If you want to be sure, you use an instant-read thermometer. Your cheesecake is ready when the middle hits between 140 to 150°F.

If after the natural release your cheesecake isn’t quite done, just seal up your instant pot again and cook at High Pressure for a further 5 minutes, followed with a 10 minute natural release.

Equipment needed to make Instant Pot Cheesecake

Springform Pan – You need a 6 or 7-inch Springform pan for a 6 quart instant pot. I use the official 7.5″ Instant Pot Springform pan.

Instant Pot Sling – This makes it so much easier to get the pan in and out of the instant pot.

Instant Pot – I have the instant pot ultra, when I was shopping around I felt it was the best value.

Stand Mixer – A stand mixer will save your arms, its the best and fastest way to get the best results.

How to Store Peach Melba Cheesecake

You can store the cheesecake whole or cut into portions.

If you will be eating the cheesecake immediately and need only worry about it keeping for a few days then the best storage method is to simply store in the fridge wrapped in plastic wrap or in an air-tight container.

If you want to make the cheesecake and enjoy it later then freezing is your best option. A properly stored and frozen cheesecake is goof for up to 3 months!

Once your cheesecake has chilled, move it to the freezer and let it freeze, uncovered, for about an hour.

Next you will want to remove the cheesecake from the bottom of the pan and place it on a round piece of cardboard cut to size.

Wrap your cheesecake tightly in plastic wrap before placing it in a large freezer bag or wrapping it in heavy duty aluminum foil.

Then freeze until ready to enjoy.

To defrost, leave it overnight in the refrigerator.

Ingredients for the Instant Pot Peach Melba Cheesecake

Here are the main ingredients for this Cheesecake including the swaps you need to make if you choose to go Keto or Low-Carb.

Vanilla Wafers – You can substitute with graham crackers if desired but using vanilla wafers fits the flavour profile of a peach melba better. If going low-carb or keto, swap the crumbs for equal amount almond flour instead and add about 2 Tbsp of Xylitol instead of the sugar.

Brown Sugar – Sweetens the crust a little more.

Butter – Use salted butter for the best flavour.

Cream Cheese – Room temperature full fat cream cheese is best.

Sugar – Plain old granulated sugar. You can also substitute with equal amount Xylitol sweetener if making this cheesecake Keto or low-carb.

Vanilla extract – Adds a nice punch of flavour to the cheesecake.

Flour – You can also use equal amount cornstarch. If making this Keto or low-carb you can omit altogether or use Xanthan Gum.

Sour Cream – Full fat cream cheese here, it helps create a rich and smooth texture and flavour.

Eggs – Make sure your eggs are room temperature so the filling mixture combines smoothly.

Peaches – If going low carb or keto use only fresh or frozen peaches. Peaches are naturally low carb!

Raspberries – Another awesome low carb fruit, fresh is best but frozen can work too.
