Baked Vegan Cheesecake – An Easy Treat For Diabetic Friends

Baked Vegan Cheesecake is a relatively new dessert, but it is a popular one. Typically baked cheesecakes aren’t vegan unless you replace the cheese with another ingredient. Most typically, they are made with soft cheese such as ricotta or cream cheese, eggs, and even cream.

To make the perfect baked vegan cheesecake, you need to look for the following factors. The filling should be: rich and dense. Try for a consistency that is slightly springy, not too runny, and has a texture similar to cake. You also want it to taste delicious.

Know The Preparation

Preparing baked vegan cheesecake can be a breeze. It usually takes about one hour for the preparation and baking of a dessert. To make this easy dessert, you simply need two cups of cream cheese, a tutti, a mixing bowl, non-stick spray, about an hour for preparation time, and about a quarter-hour for baking. If you’re in a hurry or have more guests than you have dessert plates for, you might want to prepare the other ingredients and desserts at once.

Baked Vegan Cheesecake can be baking using a tutti, which is simply a pastry shell that comes in the shape of a circle. Alternatively, you can bake the dessert in an aluminum foil-lined pan. This method requires slightly less preparation time, but the finished product is usually of lower quality. If the Tofutti is too heavy, you might find that it loses its shape when it bakes.

The most important ingredients in baked vegan cheesecake recipes are baking powder and baking soda. These will help keep the crumb mixture from sticking together. Other necessary ingredients include a semi-thick chocolate chips cookie mix, a pinch of nutmeg, a tablespoon of lemon juice, a pinch of cinnamon, and about a quarter teaspoon of baking powder or baking soda. Also, you will need about one cup of whole-grain flour, enough vegan butter or shortening to create a paste, nonfat milk or soy milk, non-dairy cream or milk substitute, and fresh berries.

The Process

The baking of this cake is rather simple. Start with about a half cup of nonfat dry milk, about two tablespoons of finely chopped and cooked vegan cream cheese, about a half cup of finely chopped non-dairy sugar, and about a quarter cup of freshly chopped and frozen blueberries. Mix all of these ingredients in a food processor, and then blend all of the ingredients until they become smooth and creamy. Next, add in the rest of the ingredients, including the baked fruit and the cake batter.

Once you have all of the main ingredients mixed well, you will want to add the arrowroot and cornstarch mixture, along with about two teaspoons of water at a time. When you blend the ingredients well, you will end up with a thick and sticky pudding cake that will rise and collapse while baking in the oven. You may find it helpful to put an unpeeled, washed arbor green apple in the blender, or some chopped dried fruit. When this is blended well with the other ingredients, you will end up with a delicious and nutritious baked vegan cheesecake.


For health-conscious bakers, there is no single recipe for this popular dessert. There are many variations on the theme, but each one is based on the basic ingredients listed above. Some of the more common fillings for vegan cheesecakes include strawberry sauce, mascarpone cheese, cashews, coconut meat, wheat flour, almond meal, nutritional yeast, cinnamon, and cranberries. If you would like to include a few vegetables and a bit of nut in your baked vegan cheesecake recipe, feel free to do so. A tossed salad or carrot stick might be a nice addition to the dessert.
