Gluten Free Dairy Free Pumpkin Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

You will need:
*For the Crust: A layer of freshly baked (in a spring form), and-then-cooled, gluten free brownies
*1 package of extra firm tofu
*2 packages of dairy free cream cheese (tofutti, whatever)
*1 can pureed pumpkin
*1 cups cane sugar (1 1/2 cups, if you won't be topping this with chocolate)
*1 egg (or flax, if you want this to be vegan)
*3 tablespoons of gluten free baking mix
*2 teaspoons vanilla
*2 teaspoons cinnamon
*dash or two of nutmeg
*extra chocolate and cookie crumbs for melting and drizzling over the top (well, those are somewhat optional)

What you need to do:
*Preheat the oven to 350.

*Blend all of the ingredients, minus the crust and topping, together in a mega blender (I use my Vita Mix). If you don't have such a thing, use a regular blender and do it in two batches.

*Pour mixture over your spring form baked brownies. Bake for 1 hour.
*Turn off oven, open oven door, let cheesecake sit for 1 hour.
*Remove cheesecake from oven, let it cool completely on the counter.
*Cover and refrigerate.

*When you're ready to serve your cake, crush up some chocolate cookies, melt a few chocolate chips, and decorate as you please.

You're welcome :)

Is there a way for the cake to appear in front of me without baking? ;D

Okay, I am going to be a big girl and try to attempt this for the upcoming holiday season....even though it looks completely intimidating for my novice baking skills! It just looks TOO delicious to not try! Yum!
