Equipment

  • Instant Pot Multi Pressure Cooker

Ingredients
  

  • Butter for greasing
  • 200 g digestives crushed
  • 60 g butter melted
  • 450 g cream cheese softened
  • 160 g sugar
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 80 g creamy almond butter
  • 120 ml double cream
  • 120 g chocolate finely chopped
  • 50 g almonds chopped

Instructions
 

  • Grease a 16cm wide cake pan with butter.
  • Mix crushed biscuits with the melted butter in a bowl.
  • Pour into the prepared cake pan and press firmly on the bottom and slightly up the sides, then place in the fridge to set.
  • Make the cheesecake filling by beating the cream cheese with a hand mixer in a large bowl until smooth.
  • Add the sugar and continue to beat until combined.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each one to incorporate completely.
  • Divide the cream cheese mixture in half in 2 separate bowls. In one bowl, add the almond butter to the mixture and stir until combined.
  • In the other bowl, fold in 40g of the chopped chocolate.
  • Remove the crust from the fridge. Pour the chocolate chunk cream cheese filling into the crust and spread carefully.
  • Top with the almond butter cream cheese filling and spread this layer too.
  • Add 500ml water into the inner pot and place the cheesecake inside on top of a trivet.
  • Secure the lid, and select Pressure Cook in ‘High’ and program for 22 minutes.
  • When the program has finished, allow the pressure to release naturally 15 minutes, then quick release any remaining pressure.
  • When the valve drops, remove the lid, and carefully remove the cake pan from the inner pot.
  • Use a paper towel to remove any water off the top of the cake, and then refrigerate the cheesecake at least 8 hours.
  • To make the topping, heat the double cream in a saucepan and bring it to a slow boil whisking occasionally.
  • Once boiling, remove from heat and add the remaining chopped chocolate.
  • Leave for a few minutes until the chocolate begins to melt, then whisk until smooth and leave to cool for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the cheesecake from the fridge and pour the chocolate cream into the centre and spread over the top and down the sides, then top with the chopped almonds.
