Instant Pot Samoa Cheesecake — 48 Comments

  1. Your cheesecake looks delicious, but do you have a alternative recipe for baking this traditionally. Would love to make this for my family.

  2. What make is your instant put please? Can you use it for all cheesecakes as well? Many thanks. It looks delicious.

    • Hi Patricia, My Instant Pot is a 7-in-1 Pressure Cooker 6 qt. This was my first cheesecake in the instant pot. I would say yes, any cheesecake will work.

  3. Wondering how far ahead of time you can make this? I am hosting a party and making a couple of IP recipes and will be sharing about IP with ladies coming.

    • Hi Wanda, I think you can make it at least two days before you want to serve the cheesecake. I would hold off adding the topping until the day of your party.

      • I had two cups of water in the pot. My cheesecake was very thick Perhaps I need to adjust the time and allow it to release pressure naturally?

        • Maybe altitude (I’m at a mile high) has something to do with cooking times. I checked after suggested time and it still wasn’t set. I went far another 3 minutes but I’m thinking 5 or 6 would have been perfect. But the taste is amazing! Great recipe!

  4. Some cheesecake recipes say to put a paper towel over the filling then cover that with foil while cooking. Do you not cover yours with anything? Does the top get covered with condensation if you don’t?

    • Hi Dee, I would recommend you going ahead and making the full recipe. You may not use all the batter but there’s really no way to adjust it that small. Only fill the batter to 1-inch from the top of your pan. I would also adjust the crust a little. I hope this helps.

  5. OMG! This is the absolute best thing that has ever crossed my lips. My hubby ate last piece last nite then said ,” I’d like to have another one asap! I have never commented on any recipe ever but I just had to. The cheesecake itself was absolutely perfect and then adding toasted coconut caramel and chocolate, what???? Sent it ” to infinity and beyond!” I did make small adjustment and used homemade dulce de leche out of condensed milk ( in instapot of course) cause I’m just addicted to that stuff . Would give this a million stars if I could.making another today cause that is asap!!! Lol

  6. Remind me of Girls’ Scout Cookies! Need to make it!

    Why would I wrap foil around the pan? I understand the sling to help to lower and lift up the pan but wrap around.


  7. Made this recipe for a girl’s night and it was a total hit! I had to bake an extra 5 minutes, but I’m in Denver so it was probably the altitude.

  8. I am new to baking and cooking and haven’t even had the instant pot a year. So trying this was scary but i made it and it was SO good and easy. Thank you!!

  9. I make this cheese cake today it was my very first one in the instant pot. It came out beautiful. So much easier then the oven ( which is how I have always make them).

  10. Can I make this in a ninja foodi pressure cooker? 8 quart? I have made it in the instant pot before but upgraded to the ninja and was wandering if it would be the same cooking time

    • Hi Sarah, You’ll have to google that one. I’ve never worked with a ninja. If I had to guess I would say yes…it should be the same.

  11. Hi i was wondering after the cheesecake sits for an hour and i put topping on do i need to wait 4 hours in fridge before removing from springform pan? My problem is i want to make 2 but only have the one pan. And would need to make sooner then 4 hours.
