Once you add your water to the Instant Pot and your ingredients to the springform pan, you’re going to release that prepping really only takes about 15 minutes or so. Besides that, the Instant Pot takes over and does all the work for you! (The combination of the sour cream and cream cheese makes the perfect creamy filling!)

Every time I tell my boys that I’m making cheesecake, I find that they’re hanging around the kitchen a lot more than what they normally do. Silly boys – don’t they know that the chef always gets the first piece?

Can I use frozen blueberries in this recipe?

I would recommend that you use fresh blueberries in this recipe as frozen tends to release a lot of extra liquid. This can cause the cheesecake to have a hard time setting up.

Cheesecake Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of crushed graham crackers
  • 8 T melted butter
  • 3 T brown sugar
  • 24 ounces of softened cream cheese
  • 3 T all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups of sour cream
  • 1 cups of granulated sugar
  • 6 T lemon juice approx. 2 large lemons
  • 2 T lemon zest
  • 3 eggs room temp. (separate yolks from whites)
  • 1 cup of fresh blueberries

Lemon Blueberry Topping Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs mixed together with a whisk
  • 2/3 cups of granulated sugar
  • 1 T lemon zest
  • 1/3 cup of lemon juice
  • 4 T butter
  • ½ - 1 cup of fresh blueberries


Mix the butter, graham cracker crumbs, and brown sugar.

Put parchment paper in the bottom of the cheesecake pan. Cut to fit. Once added spray with nonstick spray and also spray up the sides of the pan as well.

Put the graham cracker mixture into the bottom of the pan. Press down. Put about 1/2 inch up the sides of the pan, too.

Put in the freezer.

Grab a large bowl and mix on low the cream cheese, flour, and sugar.

Add in the lemon juice, lemon zest, and sour cream. Mix.

Add in the eggs one at a time, mixing after each one.

Fold in the blueberries carefully.

Take the crust out of the freezer and pour in the batter.

Put the trivet into the Instant Pot at the bottom of the pot.

Put in 1 cup of water to the bottom of the Instant Pot.

Lower the cheesecake pan onto the trivet.

Put the lid on the Instant Pot and lock the lid and seal.

Cook on high for 35 minutes.

Once done, release the pressure on the pot and take out the cheesecake pan. You'll know it's done if it jiggles a tiny bit. Dab up any moisture around the edges with a paper towel.

Put in the fridge to chill overnight or for a few hours.

Lemon Blueberry Topping Instructions:

Grab a saucepan over medium-low heat and mix eggs, sugar, zest, and juice with a wooden spoon. Should be nice and creamy.

Turn the heat to low and stir until it thickens. This should take about 4-5 minutes.

Mix in the butter.

Take off the heat and let cool.

Spread on top of the cheesecake and add on fresh blueberries.


Make certain to use wooden utensils when stirring as the metal might have a reaction with the citrus and it also conducts heat differently.

Mixing with a low speed is better for cheesecake.

A 6 quart Instant Pot should fit a 7" springform pan.
