Rhubarb Cheesecake Recipe

A little bit of sweet and a little bit of tangy flavors join to make this delightfully sinful dessert. This makes for a much lighter cheesecake than you may be used to. This is not the first time I have made a rhubarb cheesecake using the lighter cream cheese. But it is the first time I have made it with the addition of my homemade rhubarb sauce.

Rhubarb Cheesecake on the table, red serving plate

2 (8 oz.) Pkgs lowfat cream cheese
1/2 cup Sugar
2 large Eggs
1 Tb Flour
1 tsp Lemon Extract
3/4 cup Rhubarb Sauce


1 stick Butter
1/2 cup Sugar
1 pkg Graham Cracker Crust

Rhubarb Sauce:

4 stalks Rhubarb
1/4 cup Sugar
3 Tb Cornstarch
1 Tb Flour

Cheesecake Topping:

3/4 cup Rhubarb Sauce
1 cup Cool Whip

Oven Temp ~ 325°
Baking Time ~
Pan Type ~ 9 inch Springform pan
Preheat your oven.

To make crust:

Melt butter in microwave. Combine graham crackers, sugar and butter into a 9-inch springform pan. Mix well and press the crumbs evenly over the bottom. Bake the crust for about 10 minutes. Then cool.

To make rhubarb sauce:

Chop 4 stalks rhubarb and put into a medium sized saucepan. Add about 3 tablespoons water and cook over low heat until very soft. Remove rhubarb from heat and mash the rhubarb. Add the sugar, cornstarch and flour; mix well. Put back on stove and stir until thickened (about 7 minutes). Cool.

To make cheesecake topping:

Combine rhubarb sauce and cool whip, stirring until completely mixed.

To make Rhubarb Cheesecake:

In a food processor combine cream cheese, sugar, eggs, flour, lemon extract and rhubarb sauce, blend until smooth. Pour over cooled crust and bake Rhubarb Cheesecake about 50 minutes (or until cake barely moves when shaken). Turn oven off and leave cheesecake in oven another 10 minutes. Cool. When Rhubarb Cheesecake is cooled, top with the rhubarb cool whip mixture and refrigerate 2 hours.

Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?

Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.

Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.

And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!

Nothing says "I Love You" more than a surprise dessert made from one of our homemade cake recipes.

Suppling Tips for Healthy Homemade Cakes

When Baking with Butter:

Room temperature butter in the cake batter is one of the biggest cake baking mistakes. In fact, butter must be below 68° to trap air molecules and build structure. Otherwise, the fat will liquefy and the cake will be flat. To get “cool” butter, cut the chilled butter into chunks and let it sit in a bowl for 5 minutes before beating.

When Mixing Cake Batter:

You cannot over beat the eggs, sugar and butter, but you can over beat the flour. If you do, gluten will form and you will be making a quick bread instead of layer cake. Beat the flour just until there are no visible signs of dry flour, but not until the batter is completely smooth.

Cake Flour:

Cake flour is milled from soft wheat that has a lower gluten content and higher starch content than all-purpose flour. It helps to ensure a fluffy texture in cakes and pastries. A substitute for cake flour is to use all-purpose flour, but reduce the amount by 2 tablespoons per cup.

Green Food:

The food choices that we make every day have a profound effect on the environment. From farm to spoon, growing our food, processing it and transporting it all use tremendous amounts of energy, water and chemicals. By making just a few small changes in our eating and buying habits, we can greatly reduce this impact. When we eat green, we help the environment by reducing global warming pollution and help ourselves by eating fresh and healthy food. Eat local from farmers in your own neighborhood!
