Instant Pot cheesecake –
Who wants Cheesecake Factory cheesecake?
Everybody and their mama! Duh.
Are you missing nights out and celebrations with family and friends at The Cheesecake Factory?
On a stroll down memory lane, you enter the restaurant to excuse your way through a crowd of wall to wall people, all waiting with buzzers for the next available table. Just like it were Groundhog Day, on repeat, the wait is always 25-45 minutes— and they don’t take weekend reservations.
Then while you wait, there’s the dilemma of what cheesecake you’ll choose. All those calories are calling your name. Every cake they make in every flavor is staring at you from the glass display.
Will it be chocolate, Oreo, Snickers, red velvet or mango?
You select the Low Calorie Cheesecake on the menu. You deserve the Snickers Cheesecake for working so hard during the week. But the Low Calorie one gives you peace of mind.
Oh, the good ole days.
We didn’t even know how good we had it when part of the Cheesecake Factory’s identity was the eye-roll Saturday night crowd. (A recipe for disaster right now— no pun intended when I use the word recipe).

Instant Pot cheesecake filling instructions
1. In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, reduced-fat cream cheese, and 2/3 cup of the sugar.
2. Mix the ingredients on medium speed until the ingredients become light and fluffy, stopping periodically to scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula.

5. Cover the pan loosely with aluminum foil.
6. Place the Instant Pot steam rack in the inner pot and add 1 cup water to the bottom of the pot.
