Sugar Free Keto New York Baked Cheesecake: KETOGENIC, Sugar Free, Low Carb, LCHF, Grain Free and Gluten Free. Finally! A baked cheesecake that’s both yummy and good for you! 4.5g carbs per slice.
Have you ever been to the Jewish Beigel Bakery in Brick Lane in the middle of the night? It’s the best time to visit for freshly baked bagels, croissants, baked cheesecake, doughnuts and all sorts of other drool-licious treats. I used to live 10 minutes away from Brick Lane and let me tell you, these guys know how to bake!!! Testament to that are the omnipresent long queues of people lining up to savour their delights. Day or night.
If you’ve landed on my website by fluke, and you’re a carb-aholic, living in or visiting London: you must go there and buy one of EVERYTHING :). If you’re a ketoer or low carber: keep away! As much as everything is delicious, it is a carb-sugar-gluten fest. Unless you like torture, that is….
Of course, I stopped going there many moons ago. But lately I have been reminiscing about my favourite treat, their New York Baked Cheesecake. The best baked cheesecake I’d ever tasted. So I decided I should try and nail it, this time. I say ‘this time’ because I had untold fails in the past. You see, I had no base recipe to follow. I once made an amazing baked cheesecake, but I stupidly lost the recipe. And guessing ingredients, and quantities, and baking times resulted in hundreds of failures. Ok maybe not hundreds, but certainly a dozen or so.
Words cannot describe how euphoric I was to finally get the look, flavour and consistency of my favourite Beigel Bakery treat. And now that I’ve perfected the recipe, I can share it with you!
Sugar Free Keto New York Baked Cheesecake: the EASIEST and BEST.
I assure you that I don’t make such claims lightly. However, my Sugar Free Keto New York Baked Cheesecake is so good and is such a piece of cake (hehe) to make, that I can be haughty on this occasion.
I bake mine in a heart-shaped, loose-leaf cake tin that’s 23cm at its widest point and 20cm at its shortest. If you’d rather use standard-shape bakeware, I reckon this is the equivalent (approximately of a 20cm diameter round tin or 18cm square tin.
As for ingredients, you will note that I’ve used my beloved lupin flour. It helps keep the carbs low and is way cheaper that almond or coconut flour. However, if you’re allergic to peanuts, you should err on the side of caution and avoid lupin. You can still follow the recipe – all you have to do is replace the lupin flour with almond or coconut flour and you should still get a cracking result.
