How To Make Salted Caramel Cheese Cake?

YouTube video

I only used a few ingredients for this cheesecake recipe. One of the main ingredients is cream cheese. You can make your own cream cheese at home, but I used store-bought cream cheese for the sake of time.

Step 1: Gather all of your necessary ingredients. Cream cheese, eggs, salt, Cream cheese, eggs, salt, butter, sour cream, sugar, pure vanilla extract, heavy cream, cornstarch, caramel (can be homemade or store-bought), walnuts, and honey graham crackers.

Step 2: Use a food processor to crush your honey graham crackers. If you don’t have a food processor, add your graham cracker to a ziplock bag and crush it lightly with a meat tenderizer or hammer.

Step 3: Then add melted butter with a pinch of salt.  Make sure everything is mixed together.

Step 4: Add the mixture to the bottom of the pan(I used the 9-inch detachable cheesecake pan).

Step 5: Press the graham crackers down evenly over the bottom of the pan.

Step 6: Bake the graham cracker crust at 350F until lightly brown. So, about 5-10 minutes. The results vary.

Step 7: In a bowl, add softened cream cheese, sugar, sour cream, and heavy whipping cream, then mix.

Step 8: Add cornstarch, eggs, salt, and pure vanilla extract.

Step 9: Take a cake pan strip, wet it, and place it around the 9-inch pan. Then, place the 9-inch cake pan into a bigger pan. Now pour hot water into the pan.

Step 10: Place in oven at 325 Fahrenheit for 1 hour (ensure the oven is preheated). After it has cooked for that hour, turn the oven off and let sit for an hour.

Place in the refrigerator to chill for 3 hours. Then add toppings and enjoy!!

Common Questions

Do you have to bake the caramel cheesecake?

This recipe that I am providing to you does require that you bake the cheesecake. After the cheesecake is cooked, turn the oven off and let it sit in the oven for an hour. If baking cheesecake is not your thing, I also have a no-bake cheesecake recipe that is just as delicious!

Yes, you can definitely add different toppings to your cheesecake. That’s the beauty of cheesecake; you can add endless toppings: strawberries, chocolate, pecans, blueberries, raspberries, cherries, and so much more! You can even mix those toppings into the mixture to give your cheesecake a more pronounced taste.
