🍓 Gluten-Free Strawberry Cheesecake Recipe 🍰 | Sweet Sea Man
Gluten-Free Strawberry Cheesecake
You will need:
- 2 cups gluten-free graham cracker crumbs
- 1/2 cup melted unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 lbs cream cheese, room temperature
- 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup strawberry puree
- First, preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C). This is the perfect temperature for baking a cheesecake as it allows it to cook slowly and evenly.
- In a medium bowl, combine 2 cups of gluten-free graham cracker crumbs, 1/2 cup of melted unsalted butter, and 1/4 cup of granulated sugar. The butter will help bind the crumbs together to form a solid crust.
- Next, press this mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Make sure it's evenly distributed and packed tightly. This will form the crust of your cheesecake.
- In a large bowl, beat 2 lbs of room temperature cream cheese until it's smooth and creamy. It's important that the cream cheese is at room temperature to ensure a smooth, lump-free cheesecake.
- Gradually add 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar, 1 tsp of vanilla extract, and 1/2 cup of sour cream to the cream cheese, beating until well combined. These ingredients add sweetness, flavor, and a creamy texture to the cheesecake.
- Add 4 large eggs one at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Be careful not to overbeat as this can incorporate too much air and cause the cheesecake to crack.
- Pour half of the cream cheese mixture over the crust in the springform pan. This will be the base layer of your cheesecake.
- Add 1 cup of strawberry puree to the remaining cream cheese mixture and mix well. This will give your cheesecake a delightful strawberry flavor and a beautiful pink color.
- Pour this strawberry mixture over the cream cheese layer in the pan, creating a lovely two-tone effect.
- Bake the cheesecake in your preheated oven for 55-60 minutes or until the center is set. The cheesecake should still have a slight wobble in the center – it will firm up as it cools.
- Once baked, cool the cheesecake completely in the pan on a wire rack. This will help prevent the cheesecake from cracking.
- Finally, refrigerate your cheesecake for at least 4 hours before serving. This will allow it to fully set and develop its flavors.
For the strawberry puree, you can use fresh or frozen strawberries. Simply blend them until smooth. If you'd like a sweeter cheesecake, feel free to add more sugar.
