How do I bake this in the oven, please?
I don’t have an Instant Pot. Sounds heavenly !
Can I double this successfully? Would it alter the cook time?
Very easy to make, really good...
What button do I choose for cooking: poultry, steam, rice? With or without venting?
You should select the pressure cook function. And the vent should be closed to build up pressure in the pot. The vent only gets released at the very end of cooking (in this case, the recipe calls for a natural release, so the pressure will slowly vent over time without you turning the valve).
What adjustments need to be made for 8qt cooker?
In your recipes can you please put measurements also in grams?
Hi, chocolate doesn't work for me, although I love cheesecake! And I just got an instant pot. Any idea for something other than chocolate to add? Maybe this makes it a no-go, but I wanted to see....
Hmm... I know you can substitute dark, milk or white chocolate but I don't know about leaving it out. You can try adding sugar and a little extra cream cheese but it will likely affect the texture. There are also other cheesecake recipes on the blog like this one without chocolate: https://www.corriecooks.com/instant-pot-cherry-cheesecake/
Can the white chocolate be substituted for another ingredient? And if yes which one, I don’t care for white chocolate. Thank you!
Yes, you can use regular or dark chocolate. Please note you will get a different color and taste.
Can I use pressure cooker with the whisle on?
If you have a large enough stovetop pressure cooker then yes, you can use that for nearly all Instant Pot recipes.
I’m keen to make this cheesecake,
Just wondering if I could use a metal pudding tin with lid in the pressure cooker.
You can use a metal pudding tin and cover with foil.
