Nut-free Baked Vegan Cheesecake


  • 3.5 tbsp (50g) vegan butter
  • 7 rectangle (100g) honey-free graham crackers
  • 2.5 cups 600g soft tofu (pressed 400g)
  • 1 tbsp miso paste
  • 3.5 tbsp (50g) sake paste (optional but highly recommended if you can get your hands on it)
  • ⅓ cup (100g) maple syrup (or white sugar, which will yield a white-er cheesecake)
  • 4 tbsp AP (all-purpose) flour
  • 1 tsp nutritional yeast
  • 2.5 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp vanilla


  1. Pre-heat oven to 160°C (320°F)
  2. Meanwhile, in a food processor, process the crackers until fine then add the vegan butter until incorporated. In a lined cheesecake pan press the crust down flat evenly
  3. Blend pressed tofu, miso paste, sake paste, maple syrup, lemon juice, flour, and vanilla into a high-speed blender until smooth, and then pour it over the crust
  4. Place into the oven and bake for 1 hour
  5. Let it cool and sit overnight
  6. Serve with your choice of toppings! (Vegan whip cream goes amazingly).
