Instant Pot Kahlua Cheesecake

This Instant Pot Kahlua Cheesecake is a creamy Kahlua cheesecake baked on an Oreo crust and a layer of homemade chocolate ganache and whipped cream on top. I love the pairing of flavors and it is definitely one of my favorites.

  • 1 1/2 cups Oreo crumbs
  • 4 Tablespoons butter melted


  • 2 8 oz. packages cream cheese room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup Kahlua liqueur
  • 2 eggs


  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 Tablespoons Kahlua liqueur
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • chocolate shavings optional



  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees/F.
  • Add Oreo's to a food processor until you get about 1 1/2 cups of crumbs. Add in the melted butter and pulse until combined.
  • Pour into the bottom of a greased 7″ springform pan and use your hand or the back of a spoon to press and form a crust bringing the crumbs up about 1 inch on the sides.
  • Bake the crust for 10 minutes. Remove and cool on a wire rack.


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer (or use a hand mixer) with a paddle attachment, cream the cream cheese for 5-6 minutes or until completely smooth and there are no lumps.
  • Slowly pour in the sugar and flour and mix until just combined.
  • Add Kahlua and heavy cream and mix on low speed until combined. Slowly increase the speed to high for about 1 minute,
  • Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl and make sure there are no lumps. Give one final mix before adding the eggs.
  • Add the eggs one at a time and mix just until the yolk disappears into the batter.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared crust and gently tap the bottom of the pan on the counter to release any air bubbles.
  • Cover the pan completely with aluminum foil. Add one cup of water into the inner pot of your Instant Pot and add in the trivet,
  • Place the cheesecake on top of the trivet and set your pot to high pressure for 40 minutes and allow to naturally release.
  • Once you can open the pot, remove the cheesecake and allow to cool to room temperature on a wire rack.
  • Place the cheesecake in the refrigerator to set for at least 6 hours but overnight is recommended.


  • Add chocolate and heavy cream into a microwave safe bowl and microwave on 30 second increments, mixing in between, until melted and smooth. Allow to cool for 5 minutes then pour over chilled cheesecake and smooth.
  • Add the heavy whipping cream, Kahlua, and powdered sugar into a bowl of a stand mixer equipped with a whisk attachment. Whisk on high speed until stiff peaks form. Add to a piping bag and pipe a generous ring around the outside of the cheesecake.
  • Top with chocolate shavings and serve.
  • Store any left over cheesecake in the refrigerator for up to three days.
