Instant Pot Cheesecake

Cheesecake came from Greek cuisine (I know you didn’t know that…),  and it’s a great dessert you can make using your Instant Pot or any other pressure cooker.

When I crave for something sweet, this is one of my favorite options.

If you are looking for a simple version (only 3 ingredients!) , try this Instant Pot Japanese Cheesecake.

For topping, you can use strawberry jam or this lemon curd.
