I made this delicious Keto Cheesecake recipe for my Dad on his birthday. He loves cheesecakes.. almost as much as me! I guess the keto cheesecake taste must run in the family.
This recipe has been updated since I first posted this back in 2017, so be sure to follow this recipe, as opposed to my old one for perfect results.
I’ve made this Keto Cheesecake before, however, I have since upgraded my photography skills. It was about time this recipe got some more thought and care on the decoration.
This Keto Cheesecake recipe contains eggs, which give it a magnificent rising effect. This also gives it the ability to crack on the top, However, this is easily fixed with some cream and strawberries (or any other berries you so desire).
Straining the ingredients of this cheesecake through a sieve is a trick I learned from Sarah over at Broma Bakery as it helps remove any clumps that might form in the filling, which can ruin your cheesecake.
Making sure you bake this cake using a water bath is important, since the top can crack easily due to the rising and falling temperatures in the oven. Here I’ve wrapped some aluminium foil around the bottom so that while it’s sitting in the water, no water actually enters into the cake tin from below.
Keto Cheesecake (new york baked cheesecake) is a simple recipe. The only downside to it is that it just takes a while to let the oven cool once the cooking time has completed.
I made a quick strawberry compote using 1 punnet strawberries and 1/2 cup water in a saucepan over medium heat, then mashing the berries into a paste. Let that cool, and you have a perfect topper for your keto cheesecake.

Fewer Ingredients, less waste!
Nobody likes recipes that require hundreds of different ingredients just to make it taste like “The Real Thing”.
On top of that, no one likes it when they have to buy all of those different ingredients, only to throw them away a week later because none of the other recipes required any of the same ingredients.
I’ve done the keto recipes that contain hundreds of different ingredients, and as much fun as they are to make and share with your friends, I’m not sure anyone would have actually made them…
Finding simple ideas for ingredients that you already have is what I strive to turn my website FatForWeightLoss into. A helpful resource to aid in simple ketogenic nutrition without all the complications and associated costs.
