What is peach cobbler?
Cobbler is a dessert consisting of a fruit filling covered with a batter or biscuit before being baked. I would say it’s similar to a apple crumble… minus the oats. This delightful cheesecake takes the original elements of a classic peach cobbler: peach, crumble and cinnamon, and is magically turned into a layered fruity, buttery cheesecake. You’re going to love it!
What makes this the best vegan peach cobbler cheesecake?
Trust me when I say, this peach cobbler cheesecake tastes just as good as it looks! It’s made with my thick and creamy vegan baked cheesecake recipe. The crust is my go-to buttery biscuit base which has the perfect amount of crunch but not too crumbly. The crumble is buttery and wakes mines to make. It also has a dash of cinnamon for a subtle complimentary flavour. Finally the peaches are PERFECTION! They’re roasted which makes them soft and flavourful. It’s the perfect taste / texture for this dessert.
Vegan peach cobbler cheesecake ingredients
Make sure to jot these ingredients down for your next shopping trip. Find the full method, ingredients and instructions in the recipe card at the bottom of this post.
- Fresh peaches – Make sure the peaches are ripe and ready to use. You can use round or flat peaches or this recipe.
- Caster sugar
- Ground cinnamon
- Ground nutmeg
- Plain flour – As you are making a crumble, you don’t need self raising flour. All purpose / plain is perfect.
- Light brown sugar
- Dairy-free butter
- Plain biscuits – use gluten-free biscuits to make the cheesecake GF.
- Cashew nuts – Make sure they’re soaked in water and drained before use.
- Dairy-free cream cheese – my favourite vegan cream cheese is Violife.
- Silken tofu – Make sure to use silken tofu, NOT firm tofu!
- Vanilla extract – Alternatively you can also use seeds from a vanilla pod.
How to make roasted peaches:
Fresh peaches are cut into slices and baked in a simple coating of sugar and cinnamon.. that’s it! The sugar helps to caramelise the peaches, creating a tender peach while the cinnamon adds the extra delicious flavour. These flavourful roasted peaches are then baked in the middle of the cheesecake, along with homemade crumble which resembles classic peach cobbler. When the cheesecake has baked and cooled, it’s then topped with a mountain of roasted peaches and baked crumble. It adds height, colour and makes this delicious cheesecake a show stopper. It’s the ultimate cheesecake for peach season, and peach cobbler lovers!
Layers of a peach cobbler cheesecake
This peach cobbler cheesecake has 4 special layers, from base to topping. Each layer is packed full of flavour and texture, making this cheesecake a burst of flavour in every single bite!
- Base – The base is a simple buttery biscuit base, which is compact into a lined tin.
- Cheesecake filling – This is a baked cheesecake so uses tofu and cream cheese. It’s thick and creamy.. not forgetting delicious!
- Roasted peaches – There is a hidden layer of roasted peaches in the middle of the baked cheesecake and also piled up on top. It’s pretty awesome!!
- Crumble – A 4 ingredient crumble is sprinkled in the middle of the cheesecake along with the peaches and then piled up on top, making each bite crunchy, buttery and scrumptious!
Tips for the perfect baked cheesecake
Line the tin:
- Prevent the cheesecake sticking, make sure to line the base and sides of the tin before use. Cut the paper and stick in the tin using some vegan butter.
Use a loose base tin:
- Along with lining the tin, for ease of release, use a loose base / push up tin. I have linked to the one i use here.
Use a sharp knife:
- To get clean and neat slices of cheesecake, make sure to use a sharp knife. You can even wipe the knife with some kitchen paper in-between each cut, this will keep the slices neat.
Don’t add too much filling:
- When adding the roasted peaches and crumble into the cheesecake, be sure not to add too much. If you do add too much, when you try and cut the cheesecake, the skin of the peaches may drag though the cheesecake resulting in a bit of a mess. Only use a few tablespoons. The rest / left over peaches and crumble can be piled on top.
Compact the base:
- Be sure to tightly compact the biscuit base into the tin. This will prevent it crumbling when you cut the slices.
- A little trick to determine if the cheesecake is ready to come out the oven is to do the ‘jiggle test’. Open the door of the oven and nudge the pan. If the entire cheesecake looks liquid and wobbles too much, its not finished baking. If the edges of the cheesecake are golden brown and only the middle of the cheesecake wobbles, it’s ready.
- Make sure you allow the cheesecake to cool fully before lifting out the tin and slicing. It’s best to leave it in the tin, in the fridge overnight. This will give it enough time to rest and cool down.
