Directions

  1. Grease an 8-inch springform pan that will fit inside the pressure cooker. Mix the chocolate wafer crumbs and cinnamon together. Sprinkle the crumb mixture on the bottom of springform pan, pressing gently to form the crust.
  2. Melt chocolate and butter together and set aside.
  3. With a food processor or electric mixer, process cream cheese until smooth. Add chocolate mixture, and process until mixture is well-mixed and uniformly colored. Pour in the cream, vanilla extract, sugar, and eggs. Beat well. Sieve cocoa powder over batter, and pulse or mix on low speed until cocoa is thoroughly incorporated. Pour mixture over crumbs in pan. Cover cake with a piece of waxed paper. Wrap the entire pan with aluminum foil.
  4. Add water to pressure cooker. Place pan on the trivet in pressure cooker. Seal the cooker and bring it up to 15 pounds (high) pressure. Reduce the heat to maintain the pressure, and cook 45 to 50 minutes. Remove cooker from heat, and let the pressure drop on its own. Remove cheesecake from cooker, and let cool to room temperature in pan on a wire rack.
  5. Remove cheesecake from pan, and refrigerate for 8 hours before serving.

Wasn't kidding about needing to wait overnight for it to set. It's delicious the next day. I don't know if a pressure cooker is the best idea for cheesecake, but this is the only one I've ever made and it came out great.

I have made this cheese cake many times. It's always the top hit at dinner parties and holiday dinners. After learning a few tips, my success rate is always 100%. I usually cut it into small slices and serve it topped with a red raspberry sauce. My guests just love it and can't believe it was "baked" in my pressure cooker. One thing that I've learned was to prepare mix only after ingredients have reached room temperature. Love this recipe!! Rick H
