prepared graham cracker crust
the problem that everyone has with the cheesecake being runny is mostly attributed to the tofu. you need to press the tofu and remove a lot of its excess moisture prior to using it in the recipe. just draining the water from the tofu package isnt enough. after removing the tofu from the package and rinsing it off, wrap the tofu in some thick paper towels. then press down on the tofu, not so hard that it squishes, just enough to moisten the paper towels and remove some excess moisture. you may have to do this a few times over before youve removed a sufficient amount of water from the tofu.
very easy but i did NOT like the overwhelming syrupy/vanilla-y taste. if i make it again, i will reduce both very much and add fruit to sweeten.
This recipe, while delicious, is NOT vegan. Graham Crackers are made with honey, and thus not a vegan option. When I make this recipe I just line the finished cake with slivered almonds and unsweetened coconut. Please don't feed vegans graham cracker crust.
WAY BETTER than normal cheesecake. I've made this several times and everyone loves it (even the kids who will never eat my cooking). To fix the texture issues others have mentioned, I used either medium or firm tofu (both worked), added a few tbsp flour, and backed WAY longer than specified (almost 50 minutes with medium tofu). Also decreased the sugar a tad and sometimes add a splash of lemon juice to liven it up a bit. YUM!
This is excellent -- even the cheese-eaters loved it! I used half soft and half firm tofu, and also added a Tbsp of flour and a tsp of lemon juice, and used a pre-made shortbread crust. I made a simple berry sauce for the top. Unbelievably easy!
WOW...I ended up baking it for 50 minutes. It was great!
i brought this vegan cheesecake to our family Easter celebration last year and all the NON vegan went nuts over it too! it's delicious, i always have to cook a bit longer till its not runny in the middle, but it's worth it!! best with the graham crust! SO EASY!
Outstanding! This really tastes like the real thing. I am going to try it next with orange flavoring instead of maple syrup.
