Chef Joey's Vegan Tofu Cheesecake

READY IN: 1hr 30mins




  • Preheat oven to 350'F.
  • The first three ingredients are for the Graham Crust.
  • Put the graham crackers in a food processor and process to break them up into a fine powder. Then add the sugar, then the melted margarine. Pulse to incorporate.
  • Press the crust into a greased 9 inch spring form pan. Bake at 350'F for 10 minutes. Let cool.
  • Put your tofu and cream cheese in the bowl of a hand mixer (I used my kitchen aid) and whip until the mixture is smooth and creamy with no lumps.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and whip again until well incorporated.
  • Pour into the spring form pan with the graham crust and bake at 350'F for 45-50 minutes. Turn off the oven.
  • Let sit for 15 more minutes to allow the cake to settle. It should be lightly golden round the edges and should have pulled away from the sides of the cake tin.
  • It will wiggle if you shake it slightly. I also gently touched the top and it sprang back.
  • Remove the cake from the oven and place on a cooling rack for at least one hour. Then, put in fridge for at least 3 more hours.
  • Check your cake as it bakes, you don't want it to burn.
  • When you cut a piece of this put a paper towel in the cut section as it will absorb any moisture and prevent soggyness on the bottom of the cake.
  • Bon Appetit!
