Boozy Thermomix Coffee Cheesecakes

Boozy Thermomix Coffee Cheesecakes

One of my favourite desserts when entertaining - individual cheesecakes! These can be made up to three days in advance, served straight from the fridge (meaning no time spent in the kitchen when guests are there!) and look just so cute. Oh, and of course everyone LOVES them! Rave reviews every time. And guess what? Cooking them to perfection is a piece of cake (excuse the pun!) because we steam them rather than baking giving us exact temperature control. The other thing that makes this recipe fool proof is that we steam the cheesecakes in our Silicone Dariole Moulds - these moulds are naturally non-stick (no coatings that can flake off) and are flexible, making it super easy to remove our cheesecakes. We were the first people ever to make dariole moulds in silicone; originally they were only available in metal (impossible to remove delicate desserts) or plastic (not great to cook with, and certainly can’t be baked in like our silicone moulds). Game changer! We sell them in a pack of eight, because that’s the exact number that fits perfectly in your Thermomix Varoma, however the uses don’t end there! Use to set panna cottas, ice creams and semifreddos, cook Christmas puddings, sticky date puddings, muffins and cakes and even shape terrines, rice dishes and flans. Our dariole moulds have been one of our most popular products since 2014, and you can see why!

“Bought these before Christmas for my Christmas puddings. Turned out great. Have also used them for individual cheesecakes. Easy to unmould & look great on the plate. They are also one of the cheapest available for the quality offered. Will be used often in my kitchen.” ~ verified customer Karen B.

Now, back to the boozy coffee cheesecakes! These are rich and decadent with just a hint of alcohol and coffee… what a perfect combo. To keep this recipe super quick and easy (our signature!) we simply serve with a dollop of Biscoff spread or a Biscoff biscuit, giving that classic cheesecake biscuit-base flavour, but without the effort. Leave off the biscuit and you’ve got a delicious gluten-free dessert! Of course you can serve it with any topping you like; another one of our favourites is our seven-minute Thermomix Quick Toffee Caramel Sauce (page 252 Everyday Thermo Cooking). 😊

I’m such a fan of individual cheesecakes that this is my third recipe - if you haven’t already, check out my Thermomix Lemon and Poppyseed Cheesecakes (click here!) and my classic Individual ‘Baked’ Cheesecakes (page 206 Everyday Thermo Cooking).

Don’t have a Thermomix or thermo cooker? I’ve got this same recipe available in for the slow cooker!

Serves 8

+ gluten free
+ nut free
+ vegetarian


100g white sugar
2 tablespoons cornflour
250g cream cheese, roughly chopped
250g fresh ricotta
2 free-range eggs
80g coffee liquor
Butter, softened, for greasing
Biscoff spread or biscuit, to serve (optional)
8 x silicone dariole moulds


  1. Place sugar, cornflour, cream cheese, ricotta, eggs and coffee liquor in TC bowl. Blend for 10 seconds, speed 4. Scrape down sides.
  2. Warm mixture for 3 minutes, 70°C, speed 3. Scrape down sides.
  3. Blend for a further 10 seconds, speed 4.
  4. Generously grease 8 silicone dariole moulds with butter. Pour cheesecake mixture evenly among the moulds, filling to 1cm from the top.
  5. Assemble dariole moulds in steaming tray, cover with an upside down silicone Varoma Steaming Mat (check it out here!) or a double layer of paper towel to prevent condensation dripping on top of cheesecake mixture. The video below will show you exactly how and why it’s done!
  6. Place 700g of water in TC bowl, steam for 20 minutes, steaming temperature (Varoma temperature for Thermomix machines), speed 3, or until mixture has set and springs back when touched.
  7. Allow cheesecakes to stand for 20 minutes, then remove from moulds by inverting moulds onto a board or plate (any flat surface!). Leave to cool completely before transferring to an airtight storage container – the cooler they are, the less fragile they will be. Refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours before serving.

We like to serve our coffee cheesecakes with either a quenelle of Biscoff spread or a Biscoff biscuit… but the options are endless - fruit, chocolate, cream, you name it! Our other favourite topping is our seven-minute Thermomix Quick Toffee Caramel Sauce (page 252 Everyday Thermo Cooking). Enjoy!
