I also love that pan because I never have any issues with anything leaking out of the bottom as it bakes in the oven. The crust sometimes likes to stick to the pan too, so if you have an extra minute I suggest lining the pan with some parchment paper before you get started. The base of this recipe starts with an Oreo crust, which is just a simple mixture of Oreo crumbs and some melted butter. But to be honest, I never bake the crust and it always holds up just fine.

Just make sure to press it down firmly into the pan, I find that the bottom of a measuring cup works really well to help press it down. I suggest letting the cream cheese soften to room temperature before mixing up the cheesecake filling so that it comes out much smoother. If you plan to top this no-bake cheesecake with even more Oreos, I suggest buying a family pack so that you have enough. Which means that you can have some extra cookies to snack on while you wait for the cheesecake to chill, right??

Pour the heavy whipping cream in a separate bowl. Start mixing on low speed, then increase the speed to medium-high until the mixture thickens and stiff peaks form. Add the whipped cream to the cream cheese mixture and gently fold it in or mix it in on low speed with your mixer until just combined. Then, fold in the chopped Oreos. Remove the springform pan from the refrigerator, scoop the cheesecake filling onto the crust, and carefully spread it around into one even layer.

In the original recipe I posted, I used 16 ounces of thawed whipped topping such as Cool Whip. If you prefer to use this, simply leave out the heavy whipping cream and gently fold 16 ounces of whipped topping into the other filling ingredients.

I wanted to know that how soft will it be? Will I be able to slice through it? I mean will it be that firm?

I suggest sticking to the blocks of cream cheese if you can. I opened the chocolate pudding by mistake, had to use it, right? Remembered seeing this recipe. Even before Dawn on Thanksgiving! One really dumb question…….. Or……is there a better way to pull it off? If you want to put it on a cake stand or large serving dish, it should slide right off with the parchment paper on the bottom.

You can carefully lift it and remove the parchment paper from the bottom. I find just leaving the bottom of the springform pan on it to be easiest though. Would I be able to put it in the freezer to spend up the process of firming it up to serve only 2 hours after making it instead of 4? You can make it the day before and refrigerate it overnight. To convert the stuff is always a big hazzle. Greetings from Germany from Dorothee. The 16 ounces of cream cheese is about grams. I think the cream needs to be whipped before you mix it with the cream cheese.

I followed the recipe exactly and it was a runny mess. I added gelatine at the last minute to try to save it. I always whip the heavy whipping cream with the cream cheese and it thickens up just fine. Whether you whip it with the cream cheese or separately, it should still thicken. Does your container show the fat content? Thank you for the recipe. Anyway I tried yesterday with whipping cream and I think I overbeat the whipping cream.

I ended up freezing the cake, haha. You can whip the cream separately, then add it to the cream cheese mixture next time. If you make it again, you may check the container and see if it lists the fat percentage. Would this recipe still work if I use a square brownie pan? That should be fine. Hi Danielle, Wonderful recipe, thank you! Because of the cream cheese, it holds up well even at room temperature for an hour or two. Hi, if I wanted to make it a little thicker in size would I just add more cream cheese and use the gelatin idea above?

Also what happens if you use too much gelatin? Assuming the above suggestion is gelatin powder? You could multiply the recipe by 1. This no-bake cheesecake is already pretty thick though. If you use too much gelatin, it may affect the texture. I went to Tesco so the deals description is Philadelphia original soft cheese. Is this the same with yours? I personally think the recipe should be edited in the section of mixing the whipping cream Especially to those who dont bake often or just not with cream.

Other than that this recipe is great. Glad you liked the cheesecake, Holly! And also how long should I refrigerate the crust? Any brand of cream cheese will work fine, just make sure to use the blocks or bricks of cream cheese and not the cream cheese spread in a tub. Also, full-fat cream cheese works best.

You can just refrigerate the crust while you prep the filling about minutes and that will be plenty of time. Hope you enjoy the cheesecake! Hi there, was excited to try out this recipe. And was your cream cold as well when you started? Those are the only reasons I can think of as to why the mixture is running and not thickening. Thanks for being so quick to reply. It should have only taken a few minutes to mix up maybe depending on your mixer. Did it ever thicken up or was it fairly liquify the whole time? You could try whipping the cream separately then mixing it with the cream cheese.

I really appreciate you taking the time to respond again. Is there a particular reason you preferred heavy whipping cream? Thanks for the recipe! I made this yesterday and it turned out well. I did have to add another 15 minutes to the baking time though. While it is a tasty cake, my personal preference is a sweeter cake, most likely this is due to the lack of pineapple and raisins that would be in the traditional version. I am curious on the nutritional information source.

I made as written and got many more calories and carbs with the stated serving size using My Fitness Pal. I increased the serving size to 12 because that is more in line with the size I cut and it was still hefty with calories and 6 net carbs. Feel free to add more, but as time goes on, you will be able to cut back on it. If you ever make a recipe and it is not sweet enough remember to always taste test before baking then you can always serve with sweetened whipped cream or sweet frosting. As for the nutrition, I use cronometer. Thanks, lesson learned, I will taste next time and add more a bit at a time.

Happy to hear that cronometer. Served with low carb ice cream, nearly as good as the real thing! Wait did you say that this is low carb??? Thankyou so much for this recipe. You are the best. I tested out this recipe because I plan on bringing it for Easter. It seems that I had a different experience than others I read all the reviews.

My batter was very thick. I had to bake at least 30 mins and the cake was too moist. Even though it was moist, it still kind of stuck to the cupcake liners. How many pieces have you divided your cake into? The recipe states it makes 10 large slices. If you cut the cake into smaller or larger slices, then you will have to adjust the nutrition values accordingly. I must have missed where it said I would bake at the same temperature but for only minutes, but this could vary widely depending if you are using a cupcake tray or muffin tray.

My cake was very mealy and crumbly… as most of the recipes i have tried are… i think it is the almond flour red barn … how can i fix this? Go for almond meal ground almonds. I use this in most of my recipes and is generally interchangeable with almond flour but it sounds like that brand you are currently using is too powdery for some reason.

I actually had to throw the whole thing away. It would make a good spread for a bagel but not icing on a cake. Also, the cake had way too much carrot. The carrots were too hard and crunchy, just not what I was expecting. Maybe I expected too much. Did you buy store-bought shredded carrots?

They might be thicker than carrots you grate yourself. Have you ever added unsalted butter to the cream cheese icing? Just wondering what it would taste like. I make a cream cheese icing that uses vanilla, cream cheese, unsalted butter, and sugar. I only have salted butter in the fridge but I am sure unsalted would work. Hi, this cake is my first attempt at low carb baking. I msde them into muffins, for portion control, and they taste great. I was missing cake, and these make a great treat. My question is, when working out the net carbs, for 2 of my ingredients walnuts and coconut the fibre is more than the carbs.

Does that negate the carbs from those ingredients? Here is a guide to carb counting as different countries show net or total. Here in NZ products may show either depending on their country of origin and it is never made very clear. I have every ingredient in the house but no almond meal or flour of any kind except for flaxseed meal.

The link in the recipe takes you through to Amazon so you can see what ingredient I am using or referring to. I also add most of the ingredients I use below the recipe. Flax meal would be too heavy and bitter tasting for this cake. I just bought coconut flour, thinking, I can do some baking from DitchTheCarbs recipes….

Please please please tell me I can substitute almond flour for coconut flour? And by how much? I am moving away from almond flour due to nut allergies, cost and higher omega 6 levels. Most of my newer recipes are coconut flour based or at least, have it as an alternative. Try my flourless berry cake , keto waffles , blueberry cheesecake for starters. Can you use baking soda instead of baking power to avoid the aluminium?

If so, would it be a different quantity. Baking powder and baking soda are not interchangeable. You should be able to find aluminum free baking powder in an ordinary grocery store and certainly in a health foods store. The brand I use is Rumford. This is really a fantastic low carb carrot cake. I added some unsweetened lemon extract to the frosting which gave it a delicious tang… mmmmm.

My new favourite low carb non-chocolate cake.. Just wanted to say given the fact Im a terrible baker, my first attempt at this wonderful cake was a winner. I have made a lot of things from your recipes, this cake is delicious, moist and with just the right amount of sweetness.

I substituted walnuts for pecans and added a little lemon juice onto the sweet cheese cream icing, its a lovely combo. This is great news Lou, I especially wanted to create easy recipes that encourage people to cook at home more. Good luck with all the other recipes you will be trying. Hi Libby, I cannot get granulated stevia. I have liquid and powder form, how much would you use of each?

It really depends on the strength of each one, brands can vary quite considerably. Granulated stevia measure spoon for spoon in place of sugar, so simply add your sweetener a little at a time until you get the sweetness you like. Sorry if that is a little vague, it is the hardest aspect of low carb cooking to be precise about as our sweet taste is so different depending on how long you have been sugar free for.

Just made this and tried my first piece. Tasted great and was a beautiful light consistency. A nice afternoon tea and one piece was just so filling. I have been visiting your site for a while now Libby and this is my first comment though I have loved lots of the recipes. This is a great site and you are doing a wonderful job, helping us all stay trim and healthy. I was so pleased to find your site as I had looked at a few others and not been impressed by really wierd recipes. So glad to have this as I am from Australia and your recipes make more sense than ones from the US with ingredients that are still highly processed or are unobtainable.

Again I say, well done and thanks so much for all the effort you put into this site. This is such a lovely comment to read today, thank you so much. I absolutely love creating everything here and I am so happy you are enjoying them so much. I have made this cake twice. The first time I followed the recipe to the letter and the cake was absolutely tasteless except for the bitter taste from the sweeter I used. So back to the drawing board. Still not a home run…Any suggestions? Maybe add double the spices and vanilla? Making it this weekend and very excited.

How long would I cook for if making as cupcakes? Also have you heard of Kite Hill cream cheese made out of almond milk? Think it would work in this recipe? If making cupcakes which I have many times I usually bake them for 15 minutes, but test them as ovens vary considerably. No I have never heard of cream cheese made from almond milk, let me know how it turned out. Unless you are doing large amounts of physical exercise, a high protein diet for an extended period of time is very dangerous to kidneys and liver.

While I agree that research is necessary, it took me three days to get into ketosis as demonstrated by urine and blood tests on a very low carb diet, but I have stayed in ketosis since then with low carb but not no carb. You are a magical low carb wizard! I one-an-a-halfed this recipe to make a bday cake for my hubby. Next time, I am going to cut silicon baking mats to fit inside my cake rounds, so I can have a perfect edge. Brilliant recipe — thank you a million times over!

I love Christena that you call me a magical low carb wizard well I was born on Halloween — so maybe???? You made me chuckle and smile today reading that. I love your idea of throwing some pumpkin in there — genius! My recipes are made to be adaptable so well done you. And so true, you can never have enough cinnamon or vanilla in my opinion. Hi, some silicone baking mats specifically state they should not be cut, probably because they contain fiberglass which could be released into your food if the food contacts a cut edge.

Take a ook at my pumpkin pie recipe , I explain mixed vs allspice there. I made your carrot cake and it worked out OK but there was a lot of butter around the edges in the tin, which absorbed into the cake when it cooled, as you said it would. Have you tried reducing the amount of butter, or using other oils? I think I could halve the amount of butter, but would it fall apart?

Also, when I put all the ingredients into my diabetes app, it came up as calories per slice based on 10 slices per cake, and including the walnuts and 44g fat, but your calculations say calories and It takes a while to understand the full feeling from eating more healthy fats. I think the slice for you was possibly too large and hence too much fat that you felt uncomfortable.

One of the many reasons for eating more healthy fat is so we eat less, our hunger is controlled and our appetite is in check. Eat only until full, stop when you have had enough. I would definitely prefer to only use cream cheese and a sweetener but wonder if I am going to end up with a thick unspreadable and heavy texture on top? Do you blend it with a mixer first? And one last thing… how does it hold up overnight in a fridge if also iced the night before before serving… worried the frosting may become wet… not sure if that makes sense??

Thanks so much for helping me with these questions. Firstly you need to find the right cream cheese. Not the low fat or spreadable one but the full fat regular block. It is similar in texture to a semi-soft butter. Leave it out of the fridge to come to room temp, then mix in the sweetener and I like some vanilla with a fork to break it up or you can use a hand held beater. It should become soft enough to spread. Once the cake is iced, then cover it in the fridge I have a plastic microwave lid that does the job or a large upside down mixing bowl.

It has never made the cake damp because once the cream cheese is back in the fridge, it hardens a little. Alternatively I have been developing a new icing which is That is luscious too. I used 2T Splenda Brown Sugar blend and got 13 cupcakes used silicon baking cups, baked for 25 mins. These are light, fluffy, and delicious.

Best Ever Cream Cheese Buttercream

I added some heavy whipping cream to the cream cheese and sweetened with Valencia Orange Sweetleaf stevia drops to taste. One little cake sure fills the tummy and is outrageously delish. Thanks for creating this recipe! Trace amounts of honey add a couple carbs but its better for you than stevia and the like. With honey, a very little goes a very long way, especially after being lchf for over a year, and its still healthier than refined sugar or artificial sweeteners.

Honeybees are rapidly dying off. Could you tell me how much of the ground sunflower seeds you used and did you buy just unroasted, shelled, unsalted and ground them youself. Love the nuts in carrot cake but not a big fan of walnuts so thought this would work to give a little more of nuttier texture along with almond meal…almond flour is too expensive!! From memory, I only had half the almond meal in my pantry so got some regular sunflower seeds, put them in my stick blender I have a little blade attachment, similar to a coffee grinder to grind them up then just threw them in.

The walnuts are optional anyway so you could even replace those with whole pumpkin seeds? That might be nice. If it measures spoon for spoon then yes. All my sweeteners I use measure the same as sugar.

Take a look at my ultimate guide to sweeteners to see what I use and what I avoid. I have been making your recipe for a few months now and my family loves it. I make cupcakes so I can monitor the carbs. I add mascarpone to the cream cheese icing and some orange extract. The hint of orange with the carrots is really good. Excellent, how wonderful to hear your diabetic aunts can enjoy these treats and it not impact on their blood sugars. See if you can encourage them to make the switch to LCHF. I love the idea of marscopone in the icing. It was my birthday this week and my husband and kids made me your carrot cake.

Hi Becca, that is fabulous that you have started this sugar free journey and loved my carrot cake. I will watch in eagerness your experiment. I am sure by the end of it you will be sugar free or lower sugar and processed food free for life. Good luck and come back and ask plenty of questions you may have.

Happy to help, Libby x. Do you know if using liquid stevia would work? Excited to try this: I only use granulated because it is incredibly forgiving and easy to regulate the sweetness. I have tried to use stevia drops and I find it is too easy to over or under sweeten a recipe but if you prefer drops then yes it would work. Thank you so much.. Your brilliant recipes have made my switch to LCHF possible. My hubby and mother are currently raving about this carrot cake — it is foolproof and so delicious. The cream cheese frosting is nice when I leave the cake a whole night in the frigde.

Thanks for this recipe. I made this tonight and it is delicious. So hard to change the way I think about eating fat but feeling so much healthier. Keep up the good work, your posts are very informative. I made this cake tonight for the first time for Sunday dessert. The taste was great, it was definitely denser than even a gluten-free cake, and that was all fine. The carrots were still crunchy! I shredded them in my food processor but maybe I should have used the blade versus the shredding attachment.

I made this yesterday. Very moist n yummy. The icing was a little too thick for me so added a little cream to make it a little smoother. Will definitely be making this again! Yes they are all interchangeable in my recipes, just maybe adjust the liquid you may need to add. Turned out a pretty soft crumb, goes perfect with the icing! Only change I recommend is adding a little salt to the batter to really bring out the sweet carrot flavour.

This recipe is fantastic for those of us on a low carb diet and the high fat content makes it super filling. Perhaps including brands and specific types in the recipe would be helpful? I suspect that my not using fresh carrots affected it somewhat, but I think the rest might be a brand issue, perhaps of the sweetener? All the brands I use are detailed on this page. Yes not using fresh carrots may have altered the cake somewhat, but any sweetener will be fine in this recipe and any vanilla also.

With all low carb baking I emphasise add sweetener to taste as this is the most variable element of any low carb baking. I also try to encourage people to taste their baking before it goes in the oven. You can always salvage a baking disaster with sweetened whipped cream and berries. I never throw anything away. I made this yesterday and it looked fantastic but tasted awful. All I could taste was the stevia, it was way too sweet and left an awful aftertaste. What did I do wrong. Are not all stevias the same? Was so looking forward to it.

Most granulated stevia is the same, it is usually blended with erythritol so it measures spoon for spoon instead of sugar, liquid stevia is completely different. Personally I never use it as it is too easy to over or under dose. You can always add more if it is not sweet enough, but you cannot remove it and excess stevia may give you a bitter after taste. These are the stevia products I recommend on this page. I have used quite a few of your recipes the chicken curry is super yummy and everyone in the family enjoys them, so I am determined to get this one right. Low carb baking take a wee while to get used to, as you have to adjust certain ingredients to your liking and tastes.

One big tip, baking can always be saved if the final result is not sweet enough, serve with sweetened whipped cream — I hate waste, especially expensive low carb ingredients. Hilary, perhaps you used powdered stevia very fine, looks like powdered sugar rather than the coarse stevia granules looks like crystallized table sugar? THat would have made it unbearably sweet. My thought was the same as Joanne, I bet you used pure stevia extract powder instead of granulated.

I made this mistake once and it was so unbelievably horrendous. I hope you try again with the granulated kind! My husband and I made this together as part of our new carb free lifestyle. Easy to make and very tasty. Thanks for a great recipe and carb free fun! Hi I just made this cake and its fab. The only questions I had was 1 the eggs — should they be beaten seperately before adding the other ingredients and 2 the butter — should it be melted to a liquid, or just softened? My mixture was very runny and was worried it would run out the loose bottom cake tin I used.

I did line it but the lining was quite hard to remove from the cake. After it cooled in the fridge the greasiness disappeared, as I suspected it would the butter hardening up — and the frosting was easy. My teenage sons loved it and my 5 year old daughter went to bed asking for more. No I just crack the eggs straight into the bowl with the other ingredients. And yes sometimes the butter does have a tendency to make the cake oily especially in the hot weather but the butter is soaked back up in the cake when it cools as you discovered.

Many have had great success making these as cupcakes too. Thanks so much for your reply. It has kept brilliantly uncovered in the fridge all day until my family got at it and finished it off. Lovely and moist but solid too, in a good way. This will become a family favourite for sure. What I particularly love about it is that it uses store-cupboard ingredients well mine anyway as being a longterm low-carber. My fave low carb recipe EVER.

Unsure why so many people are having a fail, that is sad, this is an amazing cake, my faves and always my go to when I need a cake for a special occasion…………….. Thanks for your support of this recipe. Just made for my bd…. Hard as a rock zero sweetness. I always advise people to taste and sweeten to your sweet tooth before baking. Sweetness is such a personal aspect because those just starting out on their sugar free journey will have a far sweeter tooth than those who have been sugar free for some time.

I have had such good feedback on this cake, especially on Instagram where readers have been posting their picture of the cake or cupcakes. Hi, I followed this recipe to the letter and the cake is too moist. What could have gone wrong? It may be that your carrots had too much moisture. They can vary quite significantly. Right now it is in the oven, baking. Fingers crossed it will turn out fine. I had to make my own almond flour because we cannot find this in the market here and because of the shape of my tin I could not use paper, so I greased it and then added some whole grain regular floor.

I guess I have to wait half and hour to find out if it worked! This time I will compensate the sweetness with the frosting. You make low carbing a pleasure! Just add according to taste and remember to taste before baking so you can adjust the sweetness to your liking.

I guestimated the erythritol at around a quarter cup and then added a bit of honey, as it does work better with another sweetening agent. Added extra carrot as I processed too many: Had to bake for an entire hour though. Used a teaspoon of baking soda with 2 teaspoons ACV, and the consistency is just right. Not dense at all, not too crumbly, although I would keep it in the fridge as well.

I am thinking of making this for my Christmas birthday. Is this a mistake? The directions also say to pour into a greased and lined tin but give no size tin to use. Would an 8 X 8 glass baking pan work or 9 X 13? I learned so much about carbs and sugars: The course from last week told me that as long as I count the right amount of carbs and inject insulin accordingly I should be ok. So last night I came across your recipe. Both flours are high in proteins and low in carbs! I totally forgot the cocos and the vanilla! I was afraid it would be all too fat so I only took gr butter, it came out of the oven after 50 minutes with a nice brown crusty layer.

I never seem to make my cakes rise up very high. He woke me up with a kiss and left the house on his way to his office with a happy smile on his face and thanked me for the delicious cake I made…. I like to experiment and always throw in some other ingredients like flaxseeds, chia seeds etc. You seem to be one of the only sites that actually uses off-the-shelf ingredients! Unfortunately the DAFNE course is misleading if it tells you to eat sugar and carbs and adjust your medication accordingly.

Yes you have to adjust your dose to your meals, absolutely, but you need to adjust your meals firstly. Low carbs require less medication, less roller coaster blood glucose results and less errors.

NEW YORK CHEESECAKE RECIPE

Low carb for diabetes is a fabulous guest post from a wonderful diabetic educator and there are some fabulous resources in there also you may want to read. May I point out that brown sugar is NOT healthier. Sugar and stevia are both natural and both processed, stevia however will not raise your blood sugar.

Have a read of this page to see why healthy fat should be a regular part of our diet. I agree with you that any low carb dish is indeed healthier. So today I bought the product Truvia which is a mix of stevia with erythritol and has 99 grams of carbs in grams. I read the links and they have inspired me and I have shared it with my type1 diabetic friends in our chat group. I do not agree about the light products.

Why eating fat if it tastes ok without it?! I understand your hesitation adding fat, we all have that deep seated fear of it. Many find when they do increase their fat it keeps them fuller for longer and allows them not to want to snack on carbs and bad fats from snack bars etc. I went to a diabetic education evening a few weeks ago I am a pharmacist and asked the lecturer T1 if he had tried low carb and he said he had but was too hungry, and when we discussed it further, he realised he was low carb and low fat hence the reason for him being constantly hungry.

Dosing and covering with insulin is NOT the right way to treat yourself. Take a look at a fab Facebook group called Typeonegrit that are mostly t1 who manage their blood sugars with low carb diets — especially the children. If you were low carb before — return to it as soon as possible. This cake is a firm family fav now — I have made it 3 times now, and the best part? Made this cake and was so disappointed. Yes the recipe calls for a greased and lined time. All low carb recipes are gluten free so the structure can sometimes be a little looser than a regular cake.

The eggs should have been enough to hold it together but great idea to add psyllium husk to add more structure to the cake. This is the Mixed Spice I use. It is a combination of spices including cinnamon and nutmeg. Yes you can use vanilla paste, extract, essence — whichever you prefer for a lovely vanilla flavour. I baked this carrot cake today and went exactly by the recipe except I put 1 tsp. I put it in a loaf pan and baked it exactly 30 minutes at degrees like the recipe said. When I checked it the whole inside was a gooy mess.

So I baked it another 30 minutes at degrees and it still was a mess. I turned off the oven and left it in there for an hour and it still never got firm. And yes my oven if working fine because I had just finished baking apple pie and brownies for my husband.

Was the outside set, firm and cakelike? Did you bake it on a baking tray?

Best Ever Cream Cheese Buttercream - Wicked Good Kitchen

I have so many success stories of readers successful carrot cake on Instagram and Facebook, so I know this recipe works. This recipe was delicious. I baked the first one without coconut.
