Keto Ricotta Cheesecake

Keto Ricotta Cheesecake

Before creating this Keno Ricotta Cheesecake, I didn’t know how to line a springform pan.

There, I said it.

I must have missed that class in Cooking in school. Every time I made something with a wobble or liquid filling, it would leak out and I thought it was my fault.

I assumed either I’d messed up or I’d bought cheap pans.

When I decided to create a Keto Cheesecake (because every Keto blogger has one, so it’s my turn!) I thought I better learn how to line a springform pan.

Luckily, YouTube saved the day with this handy video

You put the paper over the edges. Wow. It creates this seal that stops any filling leaking out, and makes it SUPER easy to remove after it’s cooked!

Because you’re not trying to peel off a perfect circle of paper!

Life changed.

Almost as life changing as this Keto Ricotta Cheesecake!

If you don’t like ricotta, don’t stress because it is beautifully blended into the cheesecake and complemented by the lemon in this recipe.

It is important to cook until it’s still a little bit wobbly in the middle. Not liquid, but ‘just set’ kind of thing.

You then remove the Keto Ricotta Cheesecake from the oven and let it cool, before placing in the fridge to cool completely.

This is where the real magic happens because it becomes so dense and beautifully smooth.

The Keto Cheesecake will sink a bit in the middle and might crack a little (this depends on your oven, but it’s ok!)

I then pile it high with fresh berries because it looks SO fresh and summery.

If you were wanting to serve this Keto Ricotta Cheesecake in winter though, I’d make a berry compote or jam instead.

You could even just serve with a bit of my Keto Lemon Curd – hmmm that could be delicious!

I have used a Smooth Ricotta here, which I just bought from the supermarket. It is literally just that – smooth.

I find there’s no water in it and it’s great for cooking dishes like this. I used to use it quite bit for making Ricotta Gnocchi, before I ate Keto.

I might have to try and make that Keto because I miss that dish.

Lastly, on the almond flour, I always get asked whether almond flour is the same as almond meal. In some shops, yes it is.

Essentially what you want is a fine, blanched almond flour with skins removed – ie. no grainy brown skin bits.

Enjoy!

Keto Ricotta Cheesecake

This delicious Keto Ricotta Cheesecake is so decadent and moist, you will be in Keto Dessert Heaven! Easy to make but very impressive, add this to your Keto Celebration repertoire. 

Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 5 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Servings 12
Calories 251 kcal

Ingredients

Base

  • 1.5 cups almond flour
  • 70 grams butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons xylitol
  • 1 pinch salt

Filling

  • 250 grams cream cheese at room temperature
  • 375 grams smooth ricotta
  • 1/2 cup xylitol
  • 1 lemon juice and rind
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 4 medium size eggs

To Serve

  • Fresh berries

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 160C / 320F. 

  2. Grease and line a 20cm springform pan (see note and video above)

  3. Combine the base ingredients in a small bowl and combine evenly. Press into the bottom of the lined springform pan using your hand or the back of a flat glass of measuring cup.

  4. Prick all over with a form and bake for 10 minutes until just gold, remove to cool. 

  5. Meanwhile, in a food processor or using hand mixers, blend together all filling ingredients except the eggs. Continue mixing on high speed until the cream cheese is blended evenly though with no lumps (this is why it must be room temperature)

  6. Stir through the eggs one by one until just combined.

  7. Pour the filling mixture over the base and bake for 45 - 50 minutes. I put it on a baking tray so its easier to transport and catch any leaks

  8. Remove from the oven when it is golden around the edges and just a little bit wobbly in the middle. 

  9. Let it cool in the pan, and then refrigerate to completely set. Remove gently from the springform pan and remove the baking paper. 

  10. It will sink a bit in the middle which helps create the lovely dense texture.

  11. Top with fresh berries or your favourite keto compote.
