Hi Bold Bakers!
By popular demand, I’m sharing my recipe for a 5-Minute Microwave Cheesecake. Now, not to toot my own horn or anything, but I have been called the micro-baking maven! From over 100 Microwave Mug Recipes, to Microwave Snacks, and even a 3 Layer Microwave Cake, you know I take full advantage of my most accessible kitchen appliance, the microwave. After the success of my 3 tier cake in the microwave I thought I had done it all. Then I thought if I can make a cake in the microwave, why not try to make a Microwave Cheesecake? With that, this recipe for Microwave Cheesecake, was born!

The more you think about it, making a cheesecake in the microwave makes so much sense. as A cheesecake is is a cooked custard consisting of cream cheese, cream, sugar and egg. An oven bakes this slowly, and with dry heat, which is why most home made baked cheesecakes crack. Microwaves cook things by vibrating the fat, sugar and water molecules of the food, distributing the heat internally.
This method of cooking a cheesecake in the microwave works like a charm, gently cooking the ingredients, leaving a perfectly set, rich, cream cheese custard. Honestly, starting out I was not sure about this, but lo-and-behold, a Microwave Cheesecake, made in just 10 minutes, can you believe that?
For this microwave rendition I decided to go for a classic New York style cheesecake. In one bowl you simply mix cream cheese, sugar and cream like you would for a no-bake cheesecake. The addition of 2 eggs make this rich and creamy and perfect for cooking in the microwave.
This classic New York style cheesecake complete with graham cracker crust is the real deal only made in way less time and with so much more ease. If you’ve ever felt intimidated by making a baked cheesecake you have got to trust me on this one! You are going to love this Microwave Cheesecake!
The recipe is similar to my super popular No-Bake Cheesecakes which I’ve made in flavors like Fudge Brownie and Cookie Butter. Look out Cheesecake Factory, with my recipes anyone can make delicious cheesecakes at home.
