Sugar Free Sunday--Cheesecake, Part 3

Welcome to this week's edition of Sugar-Free Sunday! I'd love to have you link your sugar-free, reduced sugar, or no-sugar added recipes, as well as product reviews or recommendations for sugarless products.

After last week's less-than-spectacular apple noodle kugel, I wanted something else to satisfy my sugar-free sweet tooth, so I decided to whip up a quick and easy sugar-free cheesecake, crustless again, but this time with a sour cream topping.


  • 2 8oz pkgs cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 c sugar or Splenda
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 t vanilla
  • 2 T flour

Mix all ingredients, and spread in a greased or cooking-sprayed pie plate. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 25 minutes, or until puffed and "set" in the middle, and browned around the edges. At this point it will look beautiful and puffy, but it will "de-puff" and settle when it cools.

Meanwhile, mix for topping:

  • 8 oz sour cream
  • 1/2 t vanilla
  • 2 T sugar or Splenda

Spread the topping over the cheesecake, then return to the oven for an additional 10 minutes or so, to set the topping. Cool completely and serve as is or with fresh fruit.

I may be getting slightly cheesecake obsessed--this is the third sugar-free version I've done. They're all fairly similar, but I think I like this one the best so far!

Thanks to Chaya from my Sweet and Savory for linking her Apple Rice Pilaf with toasted almonds last week!

Until next time, good cooking, and good eating!

  1. Thanks for linking this up to MMM. What a delicious looking pie. It must be exciting to eat such good food without the sugar.

  2. I can't believe, I found one on each blog. You might want to check and make sure, I am right about the sugar.

    I am doing this as I rush to leave the house.

    Take care.


  3. I forgot to tell you I've been putting some bottled lemon juice in my cheesecake and sometimes I add a little bottled lime juice to it. Let me know if you want amounts.

    I made a cheesecake like this last week (sour cream topping) but I didn't make it sugar free.
