Mum shares how to make the perfect cheesecake in a slow cooker

Order from Twisted London now!

A mom has taken to social media to share her brilliantly simple chocolate chip and Nutella cheesecake recipe.

Posting in the Facebook group Crockpot/Slow Cooker Recipes & Tips Leanne Short shared her recipe, and it's so easy that you'll be wondering why you never thought of it before - especially during lockdown!

Check out this recipe for Twisted's giant apple crumble cheesecake: 

Pictured below is the finished creation, and as we're sure you'll agree, it looks absolutely delicious.

She captioned the post: "I had a go at a cheesecake today, this is the recipe I used.

"I had to adjust it for my small slow cooker, if doing it in a large one, you may want to double the mix and cook for longer."

This is the exact list of ingredients that you'll need to make the cheesecake:

  • 120g biscuits
  • 80g melted butter
  • 250g cream cheese
  • 100ml sour cream
  • 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon plain flour
  • 1 tbs cornflour
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Chocolate chunks and Nutella

The recipe involves creating a biscuit base from the biscuit and melted butter and mixing and pouring the remaining ingredients on top. It must then be cooked on a low setting in a slow cooker for four to five hours.

After, let the cake chill for three hours in the fridge, and it will be ready to serve. It really is, well, a piece of cake!

While Short used chocolate to flavor her cheesecake, as you'll tell from the recipe, it can be altered slightly to allow a variety of ingredients like orange zest and blueberries.

Needless to say, members of the Facebook group where Short shared the recipe were impressed.

One wrote: "Yet another thing I NEVER knew that one could make in a slow cooker!"

A second added: "Omg someone pass be a massive spoon"

Meanwhile, a third simply remarked: "Looks delicious."
