Gee Marie’s Kahlua & Coffee Cherry Cheesecake w/Pecans
 
Based on 12 Tall Slices including pecans: 6.25 carbs per FitDay (no crust).


This cheesecake is so incredible good you won’t miss the crust at all, but feel free to add one if you like.


This recipe is induction friendly and you can change it to your liking or omit items to lower the carb count even further. The highest carbs comes from Cream Cheese at 1 carb per ounce (total 32 ounces=40 carbs), Splenda 24 carbs for a cup, but if you use 1/2 the amount or omit it completely by subsituting with one of the wonderful flavored SF DaVince Syrups then you can't beat it. 10 Carbs come from the Sour Cream, but I wouldn't advise omitting this. I've also made this recipe using an almond or pecan based crust with flaxseed and cinnamon/nutmeg mix that is great, but even without the crust I can guarantee you it taste so great you won't miss the crust. For the topping which is also optional I make a Whipped Topping which taste great and hides any cracks that may occur during baking and gives it that store bought look and taste.

Enjoy! I know we do. It never last in our house past a day and 1/2. I'm in the induction stage and I still lose weight eating this so no stalls. It's great in the morning with my coffee or tea if there is still some left. :lol:

Comes out to 12 tall nice size portion slices or if you are really good you might be able to get 16 thin slices out of it.

Thanks penelope. It's not exactly easy writing a recipe. :D

I've revised the recipe above to show the eggs.

Thanks again. :thup:

Thank you. It looks delicious.

2007 Mon, Apr-16-07 15:01

It's incredible delicious!

I'm making another one in a few days. This will be the third cheesecake within 2 weeks. I'm lucky if I get two slices out of it.

I just can't keep them in the house! :lol:

Ok. Apparently I was having a brainfart earlier as I had my cream cheese listed at zero carbs when in fact for 32 ounces it 40 carbs. So I have revised the recipe above to reflect the true total carb count and the carb count per slice.

Splenda to Sweetzfree
 
I want to make this cake, but am planning on subbing the granular Splenda for Sweetzfree. Question is, will it still have enough "bulk" to sustain the cake? Or will it be a wet mess when it cools? And I am guessing from the Sweetzfree conversions...I'd use 25 drops to equal one cup of granular Splenda? I know, I know, probably been asked a million times. :lol:

I've done a similar cheesecake with Sweetzfree instead of bulk Splenda. Comes out perfect. BETTER than perfect, even. Yes, 25 drops = 1 cup.

Sounds like an awesome flavor combination!~

2007 Thu, Apr-19-07 20:04

Yes I love the flavor combo. I've got so many combos I want to try. Tonight it's chocolate, kahlua, & almond.

This time I added 3 tbls of hersheys cocoa and instead of using a cup of splenda (trying to cut some carbs) I used 10 tbls of the SF DaVince Kahula & Coffee, and 1 tbls of Almond extract. The batter taste really awesome so I know it will be another winner. I also made it with a pecan crust this time since the family demaned a crust I figured it better be something I can enjoy too without getting carby.

Ok, well, the chocolate, kahlua, almond cheesecake is ok. Nothing like my Kahlua & Coffee & Cherry which is awesome. So of course, I think not using the splenda played a big part in it and also I think I just don't care to much for chocolate in my cheesecake even though I'm a big chocolate lover. I tried to keep the chocolate to a minimum so it wasn't overpowering, but I still miss the original taste of the cheesecake. This could also be because I was low on sour cream and eggs so basically I changed the recipe entirely and it shows in taste. My original is definitely the keeper to go with so next time I change flavors I'll make sure to stick with my own basics. :lol:

I don't have any Carbquick.......do you think I could substitue Soy Flour instead? (I know it'll probably alter the taste some..)

2007 Sat, Apr-21-07 13:48

I haven't personally used soy flour myself, but based on feedback from many others soy flour has a bad aftertaste and many people just don't like it so I wouldn't advise using it, but that is ultimately your decision. Almond flour would be a good subsitute, but soy...perhaps not.
