Yummy Vegan Cheesecake

What you need: 

16 cinnamon graham crackers, crumbled
1/2 cup vegan margarine
1 tablespoon light Karo syrup
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
16 ounces vegan cream cheese (I use Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese)
1/3 cup sugar
4 egg substitutes (http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=7678.0) (I use Ener-g)
1 teaspoon vanilla
juice of 1 lemon
vegan chocolate syrup (I use Ah!Laska)
fresh raspberries, to serve

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. For crust: Combine graham crackers, margarine, Karo syrup, and flour in a bowl. Mix by hand and press firmly into a round pan.
2. For filling: Combine cream cheese, sugar, egg substitutes, vanilla, and lemon juice in a blender and blend until creamy and smooth. Pour onto crust.
3. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until set (doesn't jiggle when you move the pan). Let cool. Place in refrigerator and chill for 12 hours. Drizzle with vegan chocolate syrup and add fresh raspberries.
You may use any kind of topping, such as strawberries in syrup, chocolate, vegan whipped cream, etc.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I am planning to make this recipe  for my vegan mother in-law for Christmas.  I was wondering if there is a substitute that I can use instead of all-purpose flour. Since she doesn't use white flower.  Does anyone think it is possible to use brown rice flower as a substitute?

Does she use whole wheat flour?  If you got a w.w.pastry flour, I'm sure that'd work, but it's only 1 Tbs. so the rice flour should be fine, or whir up some oatmeal in a blender to make it really fine & that'd work, too.

Thanks, for the reply.  she does use whole wheat flour.  Ill try the recipe out, im pretty excited about this one

oops... forgot to mention something. To make the chocolate version, you also want to omit the lemon juice. I added a very small amount, about 2 tsp. but it did taste a lil funny. I liked it but others thought it was strange that it was a bit tart.

To make the cheesecake chocolate, I kind of winged it. I added about 1/2 cup of melted chocolate chips and about 2-3tbs. of cocoa powder dissolved in a bit of hot water.

I've never made cheesecake before, so this probably will sound dumb, but how do you make this a chocolate cheesecake? By adding cocoa powder? I'm just asking because it looks like in the pictures, a few people did that. Thanks!  :)

For some reason it puffed up and browned on the top...

First posting to vegweb - hope this comes out ok!!  Anyway, sorry to sound daft but what size pan to cook this recipe in?  I've been vegan for 2 years and haven't found anything that tastes as good as this sounds (according to all the reviews!!)

Hi Alison1960! Traditionally speaking, cheesecakes are baked in a 9-inch springform pan (they look like these: http://www.amazon.com/b?ie=UTF8&node=289683). Springform pans are awesome because after you bake and cool the cheesecake, you unhook the lever and the outside of the pan can be removed. However, if you use a storebought crust or don't own a springform pan, you can always bake it in a "regular" 9-inch pie pan. I hope that helps!

hello again!!  This is one of the recipes I've read and gained 5lbs just on the reading!  Got to try it out.  Thanks for the info/advice.
