How to Make A Sugar Free Cheesecake Taste Like The Real Thing

This sugar-free cheesecake does taste very similar to the real deal. The biggest difference is the almond flour crust I use, it will offer a bit of a different texture to a graham cracker crust, but trust me, it is fantastic all in its own.  While this cheesecake is low carb, sugar-free, keto friendly, and gluten-free, it still tastes beyond amazing. A creamy and smooth cheesecake filling swirled with strawberries. 

Why Did My Cheesecake Crack 

Cracking of cheesecake is a common issue many people face when making a homemade cheesecake. This can be due to over-whipping the ingredients causing a lot of air pockets in the cheesecake and as it bakes it cracks to release the air. Another reason you can see cracking in cheesecake is due to a quick temperature change. 

That is why you see many recipes use a water bath for baking cheesecake. I find this recipe does a pretty good job at not cracking, but even if it does you can add on some fresh slices of strawberries to hide the cracks. It will not affect the flavor of the keto cheesecake at all. 

How to Fix A Cracked Cheesecake 

Here are some simple tips and tricks for fixing a cracked cheesecake. These tips don't always work but worth a try! 

  • Chill the cheesecake in the fridge for the 4 hours. 
  • With a clean finger work at pressing the cracks together, gently. 
  • If that doesn't work get a spatula and dip in warm water to get it warm. Then use the spatula to work over the cracks. Just make sure all the water is off the spatula before using to press on cheesecake.

Can I Swap the Fruit In This Keto Cheesecake Recipe 

Absolutely. Don't want strawberries? Feel free to swap with another fruit you love. Raspberry would be good toss in a few blueberries or even do a mixed berry cheesecake. Just watch the fruit as some will have a higher carb count, like blueberries. 

Tips For Making The Best Low Carb Cheesecake

  • Cream Cheese | Make sure your cream cheese is softened. If you don't soften the cream cheese it will give it a cottage cheese curdle texture as it bakes up. You want the batter to be smooth and creamy. This will give you that velvety cheesecake texture. 
  • Allow to Rest | It is hard to resist a warm cheesecake, but allowing it to cool on the rack then transferring to the fridge is a must. This will help your low carb cheesecake to set up, so you can slice and serve with a gorgeous presentation. 
  • Almond Extract | I love the flavor of the almond extract in this recipe. It makes it unique and helps it stand out. If you are not a fan of almond, you can reach for a vanilla extract to replace it if you want.

How To Tell When Cheesecake Is Done

One way to tell when a cheesecake is done to is slightly jiggle the pan in the oven. You want it to slightly jiggle. If you bake until it is no longer jiggly it might be dry and overcooked. 

How Long Should Cheesecake Cool Before Going In Fridge?

I allow my cheesecake to cool on a wire rack on counter for around 30 minutes to a full hour before I transfer it to the fridge to finish cooling. 

Can Cheesecake Sit Out

A cheesecake should not be left out. Cheesecake will go bad if it is left out at room temperature. It can begin growing bacteria and going bad rather quickly. Always keep your cheesecake in the fridge until you are ready to serve. If you enjoy the flavors of warmer cheesecake slice the cheesecake and eat it at room temperature if you would like. Don't let the cheesecake sit out for more than 2-3 hours.
