The ingredients for baked pumpkin cheesecake are as under:
- Coconut flour – quarter cup
- Almond flour – 6 cups
- Cinamon – half teaspoonful
- Granulated swerve – 2 tablespoonful
- Melted butter – 7 tablespoonful
- Kosher salt – quarter teaspoonful
Following are the ingredients for pumpkin cheesecake filling:
- Softened cream cheese (8 ounce) – 4 blocks
- Pumpkin puree – 1 cup
- Large eggs – 3
- Brown sugar swerve – half cup
- Cinamon – 1 teaspoonful
- Pure vanilla extract – 1 teaspoonful
- Kosher Salt – quarter teaspoonful
- Ground ginger – Half teaspoonful
- Whipped cream and chopped toasted pecans as a finishing touch
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Blend coconut and almond flour, cinnamon, Swerve, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Shake the melted butter until the respective ingredients are nicely mixed. In an 8″ springform pan, flatten the crust into an equal layer that extends a bit up the sides. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until it turns slightly brown.
- Preheat the oven to 325°F. Beat the cream cheese and Swerve in a large mixing bowl until the mix gets light and fluffy. Whisk the pumpkin purée until no lumps exist. Add the eggs one at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition. Combine the cinnamon, vanilla, salt, and ginger in a mixing bowl. With the help of an offset spatula, smooth the butter on top of the crust.
- Wrap aluminum foil around the bottom of the pan and place it in a big roasting pan. Pour sufficient boiling water into the baking pan to fill it halfway.
- Bake for 1 hour, or until the middle of the cheesecake slightly vibrates. Turn off the heat, keep the oven door open, and leave the cheesecake to cool for a minimum of 1 hour in the oven.
- Remove the foil from the cheesecake and chill it for at least 5 hours.
- Garnish with caramelized pecans and a spoonful of whipped cream.
You can also make vegan pumpkin cheesecake. The only difference is the absence of eggs. It’s a good diet for veggies who want to enjoy the same taste and aroma.
