What do I need to make this Baked Pumpkin Cheesecake?

This Baked Pumpkin Cheesecake is a doddle to make, and is a really impressive dessert!

You can make your own pumpkin puree (just cook and blitz the pumpkin until smooth) but if you don’t have any pumpkin available, then you can buy some ready made pumpkin puree online.

Just make sure you buy pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling! 

You’ll need a 23cm spring form tin like this one from Amazon.

We use a spring form tin for a surprising number of recipes! Why not use it to try this Syn Free Enchilada Lasagne?

We’ve also used a food processor to combine the mix together, as well as a mini electric chopper to blitz the biscuits into crumbs. You could just use a food processor for both steps, but the mini electric chopper is soooooo useful!

We use it to chop herbs, make bread crumbs and blitz together small amounts of liquid, like in these Low Syn Chicken Kievs!

We’ve used a gold sweetener in this Baked Pumpkin Cheesecake recipe. It really adds a brown sugar flavour to the dessert without the calories, points and Syns of real sugar!

It’s also great as it’s a like-for-like weight with sugar, and as it’s a natural sweetener, it doesn’t have any nasty after tastes.

There are various brands of gold sweetener you can buy. We’ve used this Erythritol Gold in this Baked Pumpkin Cheesecake recipe and it was fab! You can pick it up on Amazon!

You could also use a normal white sweetener. Just make sure it is a true granulated sweetener, which weighs the same as sugar and isn’t the powder variety.

How many Calories are in this Baked Pumpkin Cheesecake recipe?

There are 140 calories per portion in this Baked Pumpkin Cheesecake recipe which makes it much less calorific than any standard cheesecake recipe.

How many Syns are in this Baked Pumpkin Cheesecake?

This Baked Pumpkin Cheesecake works out at just 3 Syns per portion…and it’s a good sized slice of rich and filling cheesecake!

Best of all, pumpkin is a Speed Food  – so you can totally have your cake and eat it!

How Weight Watchers friendly is this Baked Pumpkin Cheesecake?

If you’re looking for a low point dessert then this Baked Pumpkin Cheesecake is just the ticket.

Press evenly into the base of the spring form tin – this will form a thin layer. Chill in the fridge for 15 minutes.

Step 4

Place all of the remaining ingredients into a food processor and mix until fully combined, so you cannot see any white flecks of cottage cheese.

Step 5

Once the base has chilled, pour in the cheesecake mix. Smooth with a spatula or back of a spoon and place in the oven for 45 minutes until golden and set. The cheesecake should have a little wobble!
