It’s almost Valentines Day and love is in the air! If you want to surprise your keto significant other with a delicious treat, this is for you. A raspberry swirl cheesecake, topped with a little heart. 

This cheesecake is SO easy to make. It literally took me about 20 minutes to make the entire thing. The one thing I will say that is I made WAY too much raspberry syrup. Soo heads up! The best thing about this dessert is that you can make it any kind you want. Want to make it chocolate? Add some cocoa powder! It’s just that easy. 


My first cookbook – Keto Cravings – is on Amazon now!

Now some of you won’t have a 4-inch cake pan.. (also, I bought mine at Tesco for €4!) however if you want to make it with a 8 or 9-inch pan, I would suggest doubling the recipe. Here is an incredibly similar recipe I made a while ago that you can follow for the base cheesecake recipe. Link here.

 

Let’s quickly talk about the bake time. I had mine in the oven for an hour and 5 minutes.. but it all depends on how wide your pan is. Since I had the cheesecake filling incredibly close to the top of the cake pan, it took a little bit longer for it to cook. If you have a wider pan, it might take a little less time. It’s a good idea to check after a good 30 minutes to see how it is going. Jiggle it a little bit and if it’s still incredibly liquid in the middle, it needs more time.
