5 Minute Gluten Free Cheesecake - So Easy, So Good!

Well, I have certainly plumped up while here at home visiting my folks - but I do it all in the name of research! And so I can proudly say that any of my mom's gluten free recipes that I post have been well and truly tested before hand!

Cheesecake, I guess it's kind of hard to make a bad cheesecake, but there are plenty of mediocre recipes floating about, and plenty, to the chagrin of the gluten intolerant among us, that manage to sneak a fair amount of flour into the mix.

Well, here's a 5 minute, couldn't by easier, everyday cheesecake recipe that you takes no forethought, contains no wheat and is very very good.

5 Min Gluten Free Everyday Cheesecake

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 packages of cream cheese (1 lb in total, and it's easier to work with if you let it soften out of the fridge for an hour or so – but not at all necessary).
  • ½ cup of white granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of full fat sour cream
  1. Pre heat the oven to 350
  2. Mix up the eggs, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in a mixer or blender until well incorporated.
  3. Scrape into a medium pie pan (about 8 inches)
  4. Bake for about 40 minutes, or until the top has set well
  5. Right away, while it is still piping hot, spread on your full fat regular sour cream (Cheesecake baking time is not the time to go and start worrying about counting grams of fat). Lower fat sour creams do not spread well, and do not get absorbed by the cooling cheese. The sour cream will stop the cake from cracking.

Let cool and eat, or refrigerate and eat for days and days. This cake actually tastes better the day after baking, making it perfect for an easy entertaining dessert.

I like it topped with some fresh fruit or good homemade jam…and just a little bit more whipped cream on top.

Enjoy.

This recipe is AWESOME!!! I made it for my friend's birthday dinner and everyone LOVED it!! I increased the recipe by 1/2 and baked it in a greased springform pan. I also added one teaspoon of almond extract. When cooled topped with a can of cherry pie filling. SSSSSOOO delicious!!! Will be making it again for a Valentine's party I'll be going to.

A little disappointed in consistency & taste. I would beat the cream cheese with sugar first, add eggs & vanilla last to get a creamy texture. I would double the ingredients & bake in a springform pan & cook longer until set. It definitely will taste better the next day. I put a scoop of cherry pie filling on each serving.

You can do an almond crust

2 cups whole unblanched almonds

5 tablespoons of sugar

1/4 teaspoon almond extract

5 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a food processor, blend the almonds, sugar and almond extract until the almonds are coarsely chopped. Add unsalted butter and process until almonds are finely chopped. With your hands, press the almond mixture firmly onto the bottom and 2 inches up the side of a 9-inch-diameter springform pan. Fill a small glass (no handle) with coins and use it to gently press the crust onto the bottom and sides, allowing the weight from the coins to do the work for you.

Bake crust until light brown, about 15-20 minutes. Allow the crust to cool in the pan on a rack. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F.

We used your cheesecake recipe last week http://wp.me/p1VzJI-4b it was decidedly the best cheesecake ever.

I made this cheesecake last week and my crust was:

1/2 package frozen Kinnikinnick cookie KToo's http://www.glutenfreeproductsusa.com/products/kinn... (GF)

processed in food processor until crumb like. Then I put them in a bowl with 6T butter then mixed and pressed into the bottom of an 8x8 glass pie pan.

Then I put the cheesecake mixture on top of the crust and baked as usual. DELICIOUS! Absolute perfection.

More cookie crusts http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/cookie-crus... if you're going for GF, use GF foods of course.

I'm glad some of the comments bothered to offer a wheat/gluten free crust option, since that was what I was looking for. The main article is basically just a normal cheesecake recipe minus the crust; and that wasn't what I wanted.

my bff has been loooking for the perfect cheescake recipe - not to watery and not to dry, she LOVED this, and ofcourse i made this one of my top recipes - super delicious and super easy! thank you so much!

I served this for a dinner party over the weekend. The best cheesecake anyone had eaten! So simple, yet so delicious! I used the almond crust Elizabeth gave the recipe for, here in the comments. Perfect!

At first I was concerned about the sour cream melting over the hot cheesecake, but it firmed up nicely and become one with the cheesecake.

Quick question - I am thinking about making these into miniature cheese cakes in a muffin pan- do you think it will work out if I use baking cups??


Madeleine 19 months ago

Looks amazing I will try it with this sugar instead http://www.tiana-coconut.com/products/coconut-supe... because I am now on a low GI diet and let's see how it works :)

Thank you for this recipe. I want to make it for my friend and she does not like the unbaked cheese cakes and I do not like making pie crusts so this is ideal.
