How to Make Easy Air Fryer Creamy Cheesecake

To prepare the cracker crumb crust, you must combine the crushed cracker crumbs with the melted butter and mix until evenly combined. Pour the mixture into the bottom of the springform pan and press the crumbs down into the base and up the sides using the bottom of a measuring cup. Meanwhile, preheat the air fryer. Place the crust onto an air fryer basket or tray and air fry until golden brown.

To make the filling, in a bowl of an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese on low-medium speed until fluffy. Then, add the flour and sugar and continue to beat slowly until combined. Add the eggs and continue beating after each addition. Scrape the sides of the bowl, then add the vanilla extract, sour cream, and lemon zest. Beat until creamy.

Put the pan with the crust into the air fryer, then pour the filling over the crust and smooth the top with a spatula. Close the air fryer lid and turn the air fryer setting to bake.

Check if the top is firm to the touch and the center jiggles slightly.

Carefully remove the springform pan from the air fryer, let it sit at room temperature for about 1 hour, and then place it to cool in the fridge.

Top the cheesecake with berry sauce or any other fruit sauce, powdered sugar, and a dollop of whipped cream.

  • If the cheesecake is becoming brown too quickly you can also reduce the temperature and bake for a little bit longer.
  • When baking time is finished, allow the cheesecake to cool in the Air Fryer basket to avoid cracks.
  • You can keep any leftovers in the fridge for up to three days.
