recipe image Violife Baked Cheesecake
Crust:
  • ¼ cup melted Violife Plant Butter - ½ cup
  • 1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs - 3 cups
  • 3 tablespoons sugar - 6 T
Filling:
  • 4 (8 oz) packages Violife Cream Cheese block, at room temperature - 8
  • 1 cup granulated sugar - 2 cups
  • ¼ cup cornstarch - ½ cup
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla bean powder, or ground vanilla - 1 tsp
  • 4 eggs, at room temperature - 8
  • 1 egg white, at room temperature - 2
  1. Stir ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Transfer to a 9’’ springform pan and press into the bottom and a little bit up the sides of the pan. Set aside in the refrigerator to chill while you prepare the filling.
  2. Whisk sugar and cornstarch together in a mixing bowl. Set aside.
  3. Using an electric stand mixer outfitted with the paddle attachment, beat cream cheese and vanilla extract on medium speed until smooth. Add the sugar and cornstarch mix and beat for another minute or so. Do not overmix.
  4. Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the eggs and egg white, one at a time.
  5. Retrieve the springform pan from the refrigerator. Wrap the pan with one large piece of heavy duty aluminum foil.
  6. Pour cheesecake batter into the pan.
  7. Create a water bath. Place the springform pan in a large roasting pan. Pour boiling water into the roasting pan until the water is about 1’’ up the side of the springform pan.
  8. Bake cheesecake at 300 degrees F for 1 hour 15 minutes - 1 hour 30 minutes. The cheesecake should be almost set, with a slight jiggle in the middle.
  9. It needs to chill for a while for optimal texture and eating experience. At least 4 hours, but preferably overnight.
