LEMON BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE BACKSTORY
So I’ve been doing some research into cheesecake recipes using a Crock Pot or Slow Cooker. This Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake is adapted from a basic cheesecake recipe I found on This Old Gal.
The blog also has some great tips on cooking with Crock Pots and Instant Pots. I just made an amazing Mint Chocolate Cheesecake in my Instant Pot, so if you are wanting to try that as well, check it out!
This blueberry lemon cheesecake is the perfect summer recipe. You can plug in the crockpot or slow cooker indoors or out. We’re at the trailer so it’s the perfect way to add a delicious dessert to our weekend plans!
TIPS TO MAKE A PERFECT LEMON BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE
In addition to your Crock Pot, you will need a 7″ spring form pan and some parchment paper.
It’s really important to fully grease your pan and that also includes the parchment paper. That way your beautiful Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake will easily slide out.
Follow the instructions exactly.
Make sure you put the paper towel underneath the lid while baking. This keeps condensation from forming on your cheesecake.
This cheesecake really is better after being in the refrigerator overnight, so make sure you bake it the day before you want to serve!
CROCK POT LEMON BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE FAQs
What is the best crockpot or slow cooker size to use?
The best size of slow cooker to use is a 6 quarter with a clear glass lid. I use the Crock Pot brand, and have included a link below as well.
Why do I need to use a trivet in the bottom of the crockpot?
There is an inch of water on the bottom of the slow cooker, so it keeps your cheesecake from getting wet!
Won’t my cheesecake get wet from condensation?
No, putting the thick layer of paper towels across the top of the slow cooker, just under the lid will prevent this.
Isn’t it easier just to bake the cheesecake in a regular oven?
Not really. Both take a little care when baking, but I prefer the Crock Pot since I can set the timer and go away and leave it. Sit outside on the deck with a cold drink and read a book, or just relax.
