I might have mentioned this once or twice or five hundred times before, but I kinda love coffee. I mean love. I live on it. And I don’t just enjoy the traditional coffee beverage, but I love coffee flavor in…oh, just about everything.
Coffee Sticky Buns? Yep.
Coffee Crinkle Cookies? Check.
Cappuccino Bundt Cake? Uh huh.
Coffee Cheesecake Mousse. Done.
Homemade Iced Mochaccino? But of course!
Cappuccino Cheese Muffins? Naturally.
Cappuccino Cream Cheese Cookies? You know I went there.
Okay, okay. I think you get my point here. I love coffee in my desserts, and you guys do to. So….naturally, I had to put coffee into my cheesecake too! But for this particular cheesecake, I decided to get inspired by cappuccino – not just by the coffee flavor, but by the foamy milk it contains too. To get that element into my cheesecake, I whipped some heavy cream (parve whip if you’re keeping this nondairy) and folded it in. The resulting texture is incredible and creamy!

- ½ cup heavy whipping cream (use whip topping to keep this parve)
- 1 8-oz container cream cheese, unwhipped (tofutti works well)
- 2 teaspoons instant coffee powder dissolved in 2 Tablespoons boiling water, cooled
- 1 egg
- ½ cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 graham cracker crust
- whipped cream and caramel or chocolate sauce, optional, for serving
- Preheat oven to 350 .
- In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the cream until stiff peaks are formed. Remove from mixer and set aside. There’s no need to wash the mixer before continuing.
- Add cream cheese, coffee, egg, sugar and vanilla to mixer. Beat until smooth. Do not overmix.
- Using a rubber spatula, gently fold reserved whipped cream back into the cheese mixer. Stir until evenly distributed.
- Pour the mixture into the graham cracker crust and bake for 50-60 minutes, until the center is just set. Remove from oven and set aside to cool completely before serving.
- If using, top with a dollop of whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel or chocolate sauce.
