Easter carrot cheesecake recipe



  • 200g of butter biscuits (e.g. graham crackers)
  • 100g of melted butter
  • 2 spoons of sugar


  • 500g cream cheese (Philadelphia or similar)
  • 150g of sugar
  • 200g of grated carrot
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Pinch of salt


  • 200g mascarpone or other soft cream cheese
  • 50g of powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence


  • Chopped nuts, grated carrots, an edible flower or small Easter chocolate figures


  1. Finely crush the biscuits and mix with melted butter and sugar. Spread the mixture evenly and press it into the bottom of a baking dish (with a removable bottom) to form a firm base. Let it cool in the refrigerator.
  2. In a large bowl, mix cream cheese with sugar until smooth. Gradually add the eggs, one at a time, stirring constantly. Add the vanilla essence, grated carrot, cinnamon, nutmeg and a pinch of salt. Mix the mixture well.
  3. Preheat the oven to 160°C. Pour the cheesecake layer over the cooled body and bake in the oven for approximately 50-60 minutes, or until the center is firm and the edges are golden. After baking, let the cheesecake cool to room temperature, then store in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, ideally overnight.
  4. Mix the mascarpone with powdered sugar and vanilla essence until the mixture is smooth. Spread the frosting on the cooled cheesecake.
  5. Before serving, decorate the cheesecake according to your own imagination – you can use chopped nuts, grated carrots, edible flowers or Easter chocolate figures.

Easter carrot cheesecake questions and answers

Can I use another type of cheese instead of cream cheese?

Cream cheese (such as Philadelphia) is an ideal choice for cheesecake because of its creaminess and mild flavor. However, if you need an alternative, mascarpone is a good substitute that can add additional richness to the cheesecake. It is important to choose a cheese with a similar texture and neutral taste.

How can I ensure that the cheesecake does not crack during baking?

Cheesecake cracking is a common problem that can occur for a variety of reasons, including cooling too quickly. One way to prevent this is to let the cheesecake cool in the oven after baking with the door slightly open, thus avoiding sudden temperature changes. It is also important to bake the cheesecake at a lower temperature and use a water bath, which helps maintain an even temperature.

Can I make cheesecake without baking?

This particular recipe requires baking for best results as it contains eggs and cheese that need heat treatment to set properly. However, there are no-bake cheesecake recipes that are based on gelatin or other agents, but for this recipe, baking is essential.

How long can I store cheesecake?

You can keep carrot Easter cheesecake in the refrigerator in a closed container for up to 3-4 days. If you want to store the cheesecake for a longer period, you can freeze it without frosting for up to 1 month. Let the cheesecake slowly thaw in the refrigerator before serving.

How can I decorate the cheesecake?

You can decorate the cheesecake in many ways, from chopped nuts, to grated carrots, edible flowers, to Easter chocolate figures. There are no limits to creativity, and you can adapt the decorations to the theme of your Easter board or to your personal preferences.
