This really is the best low-carb and keto cheesecake. Even my non-keto family declared, “This is the best cheesecake I’ve ever had!”
There isn’t much difference between a “regular” cheesecake and a keto cheesecake. The only thing we need to substitute is the sweetener to make it sugar-free, and the crust to make it gluten-free. mission accomplished!
I really wanted to make a keto cheesecake that was very thick and creamy but didn’t have to use a water bath or any weird ingredients.

10-inch springform frying pan
for the crust
1 1/2 cups almond flour
1/4 cup local powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
6 tablespoons melted butter
6 8-ounce packages of full-fat cream cheese, room temperature
2 cups of local powder
5 large eggs, room temperature
8 ounces sour cream, room temperature
1 tablespoon vanilla
Set the rack in the broiler Combine dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Mix the butter. Pour the crust mixture into a 10-inch by 4-inch skillet and press halfway down both sides with your fingers. Use a flat cup to press the mixture to the bottom. Put the crust in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
In an enormous blending bowl, beat room temperature cream cheddar with a hand blender until light and fleecy. If you are using a stand mixer, use the included paddle.
Add the sweetener a little at a time (about 1/3) and beat with a hand mixer.
Add the room temperature eggs one at a time and beat until well combined.
Finally, add the vanilla and room temperature sour cream and whisk until completely combined.
Empty the cheesecake combination into the hull and, surprisingly, out the top.. Bake in the preheated oven. Check after 50 minutes. The top should not be shiny and the center should still be shaky.
Turn off the oven and break the door. Allow the cheesecake to sit in the broiler for 30 minutes. Remove the cheesecake from the oven, running a sharp paring knife between the cheesecake and the tray (this is to ensure the cake does not stick. Do not remove the spring). Leave it on the table for an hour.
Cover with saran wrap and spot in the cooler for something like 8 hours.
Remove the sides of the springform mold, decorate the top, and serve. Makes 12 slices.
Nut Free Version: If you can’t stand almonds, you can make a 1-for-1 swap for sunflower seed flour!
Pan size: This cheesecake recipe calls for a large bowl of springtime. I linked one in the carb recipe above. If you use a very small one, you will have padding-left.
Low-carb cheesecake without a crust: To make this without a crust, line the inside of a springform pan with parchment paper. You can also grease the sides and bottom well. Then continue with the cheesecake as usual.
KETO PUMPKIN CHEESE PAN: Simply replace the sour cream with pumpkin puree and add 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice.
VERY IMPORTANT: The most important thing to know when it comes to making cheesecake is that all of your ingredients are at room temperature. Anything should be left to cool for at least 2 hours, preferably 4. ie eggs, sour cream, and cream cheese. Dipping eggs in warm water will help speed up the process of bringing the ingredients to room temperature, as well as separating the cream cheese and cutting it into smaller pieces.
Freezing: This is a great keto cheesecake but the good news, is it freezes really well! You can freeze individual slices or a whole cake…or half a cake!
This is a decent reference for freezing entire cheesecake
To freeze individual slices, simply slice the cheesecake pieces and place them on individual pieces of plastic wrap. Wrap tightly, place in a freezer bag or bowl, and store in the freezer for up to two weeks. Any more than two weeks and they will lose quality.
