    I cant believe there’s no crust!! It looks amazing and self-crusting with the edges too! I bet my family would be fooled on sight.

    Just bit into this and it’s very very eggy, almost like I’m eating a scrambled egg pie.

    This looks so good! I’ve been on the lookout for a lighter cheesecake because my husband really likes this type. I haven’t been able to find one until now. Pinned this one to try this summer!

    Hi, this looks AMAZING. Just a few questions just to make sure i get it right. is it 350 degrees centigrade or Fahrenheit, and do you mean two thirds of a cup of sugar or 2-3 cups of sugar? and would you say the eggs are roughly medium or small??
    Sorry if these are stupid questions.

    Hey, I just tried this recipe. The cake is now in the fridge. :D
    Is it right that the first part (the one that’s baked) is very fluid before you bake it? Because mine was. And it hasn’t turned out as big as on your pictures but I think this could be because my pie plate was bigger.
    I hope the cake comes out good. :) I’m so excited to try it! :)

    And later: Is it okay if I post a picture of it on my blog and give a link to your recipe if it comes out good? :)

    I am making this today!! I’ll add lemon zest because my kids like it in their cheesecake but that’s all I will change. Well, that and I only use full-fat dairy. Can’t wait til tonight when we can dig in!!

    So I just baked mine and it looks so good. I just added a pinch of salt and 3 tablespoons of flour just because. The sour cream tastes very good. I bet it’ll be amazing on the pie. I pinched into the center to give it a try and it tastes amazing! Great recipe. Thanks.

    I put some chocolate chips on the cream cheese part and it is taking a little longer to bake. I already made 1, very excited to have this for my friends birthday (she has gluten allergies). Being a dairy farmer I used whole dairy products and eggs from my free range chickens. Thanks for sharing! Can’t wait to eat them!

    I am looking to make cheesecake stuffed strawberries, and since I don’t need a crust for them, this looks like a great recipe. I originally was looking for a peanut butter cheesecake recipe. If i were to add 3/4 cup of creamy peanut butter to the filling, how do you think that would affect baking time, consistency, and flavor?

    Thank you!

    I’ve just tried your recepie. I added some lemomjuice with the sourceame and vanilla. It came out realy nice. It tast great! But it dosen’t really feel like cheesecake more like a mix of pie and chessecake. But still it’s really good. And it’s much fever calories :-)

    I’ve made this twice now. Once as a pie with orange zest in the cream topping and now again as cupcakes (still with orange zest). The zest in the cream is out of this world!

    This recipe is very unclear and left me with a drippy chunky batter that’s seems pretty useless. I beleive you might want to alter the directions to specify to cream the sugar and cream cheese until smooth THEN add the eggs. I’m certain this was my mistake as I’ve made cheesecakes numerous times with my mother and this is what we always did. I suppose I should have listened to my instincts on this rather than blindly following the recipe to the letter.

    This is a perfect basic crustless cheesecake recipe. I like to reduce the eggs to 3 to lower cholesterol a bit but keep it at 4 eggs when folding ingredients like fruit or chocolate. I can’t wait to use this recipe for rum cheesecake. This is the go-to recipe for any cheesecake!

    Hi, i’m going to be making this for fourth of july and i wanted to know if i should a shallow pan of water on the bottom rack of my oven? Will the cheesecake sink even though it doesn’t have a crust. I heard that cheesecakes have a tendency to sink.

    Hi, I have celiac, so I can’t tell you how excited I was to find your recipe! It is my husband’s birthday and cheesecake is his favorite desert. My kids broke my glass pie pan, so I hope it turns out okay in the disposable metal type. I’d also like to know if there’s a difference for high altitude. I’ll let you know how it turns out! Thanks for sharing it!

    Thanks, Rachael!
    I just ate my slice, and here’s my scoop: I loved how easy it was. I loved the topping. I like that I only had to refrigerate for 42 hours, instead of overnight, like most recipes! Here’s how I think it could have been better: I didn’t leave the eggs out and let them warm up to room temperature before making the batter. I think if we add the eggs one at a time and only mix on low, that it won’t be lumpy or have cracks. It did seem a little too “eggy”, but that’s probably because I did it wrong. It seemed fine with the tin pie pan, but there was extra batter. My husband definitely liked the taste, but wished it was more firm. Do you think by either removing one egg or adding more cream cheese that it would be better? I suppose it could either be the altitude or I may need to bake it longer. Thanks again for sharing this recipe, and I will look for more of your recipes!

    Oh my god it was so easy! Amazing. I made it for my bfs bday and he loved it. Although it didnt quite taste like traditional cheesecake, it resembles this not too sweet but fluffy and delicious japanese cheesecake I used to enjoy.
    I put a little bit of lemon zest, a pinch of salt and topped it with fresh strawberries and it turned out beautiful.

    But im just wondering… is there an easier way to pull out the cake after its done..? Like was i supposed to butter up the pie plate before i put the batter in?

    Hi Rachael,

    I’m looking for a crustless cheesecake because I’m shooting for low-carb. Do you know if anyone’s tried this with a sugar substitute? Or even a sugar blend to lower the carb count a little? I’m wondering if it would effect the consistency or texture. Such great feedback on here; I can’t wait to try it! Thx.

    Holy buckets – this came out amazing! My boyfriend is such a stickler for crustless cheesecake and this totally appeased his pallet. I did replace about 1/8 tsp of vanilla with almond extract and also used orange zest as other reviewers had mentioned. SO. GOOD. Thank you for this great recipe that is so easily welcoming to flavor adaptions :)

    I’m so disappointed in this cheesecake it’s unbelievable. It tastes nothing like cheesecake, it tastes like scrambled eggs and has a quiche-like consistency. I strongly doubt that this recipe has been tested properly and I doubt the authenticity of the photos as well. Frankly, the cheesecake I made looks nothing like the photos. It is so completely eggy, and could pass as some sort of sugary, eggy breakfast food. I followed the recipe to the letter and it turned out very bizarre. Like, was this recipe just made up out of nowhere?

    My husband took a bite and literally asked me if I was punking him and this was actually an omelette. It’s simply nothing like a cheesecake, I do not recommend!!

      Every time I make this recipe it comes out looking like the photos. It doesn’t have the same texture as a cheesecake you would typically buy at a restaurant or bakery, but it doesn’t taste like eggs, either. I have learned that it is important to mix the ingredients really well, and to not over bake the cheesecake. The sour cream topping is what makes this recipe stand out. I am not a big fan of crust anyway, and I think this is a perfect, delicious alternative to traditional cheesecake!

    Thank you for the recipe. We used 3 eggs instead of four and added 3/4 tsp lemon extract and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract in the main cream cheese/sugar base, and another 1 tsp vanilla extract yogurt instead of sour cream on the topping (we didn’t have sour cream so used Balkan style yogurt instead which we drained). After spreading the yogurt mixture over the top, we put it back in the oven for another 10 min as we had a batch of brownies baking as well. We let it cool and then chilled for 4 hours. It was delicious! The cheesecake was nice and firm and creamy just like your photo.
