Cappuccino Cheesecake

If you’re a fan of coffee-themed desserts, you’ll adore this cappuccino cheesecake! It’s just what you need to get your java fix while still satisfying that sweet tooth. Plus, it’s easy to whip up in a jiff and is always a hit at dinner parties, potlucks, and everything in between!

I’ll be honest and say that I’m a huge coffee nut and drink coffee every single day (without fail!). I usually only have cappuccinos as an occasional sweet treat, but cheesecake is my ultimate weakness. Put them both together in a rich, luscious, and moreish package, and I’m a goner.

And the best part is, adding coffee to the recipe means that it’s not overly sweet. That’s right, this is one of those desserts that strikes a perfect balance and doesn’t overwhelm your taste buds. You can always jazz it up with a dollop of cream for extra richness, but this treat is tasty enough on its own!

I usually whip up an entire cheesecake in a solid springform pan that makes it pop right out. But don’t blame me when you struggle to resist slice after slice of this perfectly round wonder!

    What to Serve with Cappuccino Cheesecake

    You can totally have this cappuccino cheesecake on its own. But these desserts and dishes will be awesome. additions to your table!

    Recipe Tips and Tricks

    • If you want a perfectly smooth cookie base, crush your Oreos in a Ziploc bag. This way, you won’t end up with any uneven crumbs.
    • I recommend being careful with how strong your coffee is. As you might expect, stronger coffees will be far more overpowering in this dessert. If in doubt, stay away from espresso and stick with regular coffee!
    • Don’t overbeat your batter. You don’t want to go overboard once you’ve added the eggs. Just mix your cheesecake ingredients until everything is just combined.
    • Don’t forget to bring your cream cheese to room temperature before starting. Cream cheese that’s too cold won’t mix well with other ingredients, leading to a lumpy mess!
    • Be careful not to overbake. You want to make sure the cheesecake is set, but if you leave it too long, it’ll ruin the texture of your dessert.
    • Make sure you leave the cheesecake in the fridge for the minimum cooling time. Any less than 3 hours in the fridge is asking for trouble. Just make sure you bring the cake to room temperature first (or your cake may start to sweat in the fridge).

    Variations and Substitutions

    • I recommend using chocolate cookies for the base as they create a mocha-like flavor. But you can easily use Golden Oreos or a regular graham cracker crust instead!
    • For a bougie take on the classic recipe, feel free to whip up a chocolate ganache to pipe around your cake.

    Storage Instructions

    This cappuccino cheesecake stores well in the fridge for around 3 days. It may last a day or so longer, but I don’t recommend keeping it for this long. To extend its life as much as possible, put the leftovers in an airtight container!

    Can I Freeze?

    You can freeze this cheesecake whole or in separate sections, but I find sections are easier to deal with.

    Simply cover each slice tightly with plastic wrap and place them in the freezer.

    If you’re doing the whole cheesecake, leave the base inside the springform pan and wrap the entire thing in plastic wrap.
