Instant Pot Bananas Foster Cheesecake Recipe
The biggest thing to keep in mind when you’re making this simple cheesecake recipe is that you need to pay attention to the cooking process. The cooking time in the Instant Pot is really an important process. Why spend all this time making the cheesecake and try to cut corners in the end?
My boys have eaten my cheesecakes their whole lives and they’re absolutely in love with this recipe. I can’t say I blame them – it’s one of my favorite ways to use bananas in a dessert!
How do I get the cheesecake filling creamy?
I like to use my stand mixer to really mix up the cream cheese and sour cream. You need that fast mixing motion of an electric mixer to get that smooth and creamy texture.

How do I know cheesecake is cooked all the way?
Make certain that you have enough cups of water added to the Instant Pot before cooking. I add the water in 1/2 cup increments. You need to be certain to cover the cheesecake as well.
After the cooking time has passed, there shouldn’t be any liquid on the top. It should have a very slight jiggle to it, but not be overall jiggly. You can also let it cool a bit to see if it’s firming up.
