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?

Has anyone tried this in muffin cups without any crust? I want to make mini cheesecakes crust-free but I'm not sure how it will turn out.
Thanks in advance for any comments!

Made this last night and it was a hit.  We used a pre-made crust, no water with the egg replacer and 2 tbs. of lemon juice.  Topped it with raspberries and chocolate sauce.  We tried it after it sat for about 6 hours and it was fine, although I liked it better today ... it seemed firmer.  I thought the combination of flavors was wonderful.  My first bite made me smile.  :)

Simple and it tasted really great. I made it even more simple by just buying a pre-made grahm cracker crust (most are vegan).

This looks gorgeous!
I didn't even know vegans could eat anything remotely resembling cheesecake when I first switched over.
I MUST MAKE THIS.
:D

Does anyone know - would this work with ground flaxseed as the egg replacer instead of the Ener-G?  I won't be able to get it for a while, but I have all the other ingredients on hand.  Thanks!

yeah! there were reviews above you that said that it works wonderfully!

WOW! This was sooo awesome! So creamy and moist! i changed the recipe a little, instead of the egg replacer I used 2 bananas and the store bought chocolate crust, and added little swirls of chocolate on top! A chocolate banana cheesecake!! My husband and I LOVE this recipe!! Very Very easy to make. I wasnt able to wait the full 12 hours the recipe called for but I lasted about 5 hours and it was perfect!!! Yummy Cheesecake!!

I am trying out recipes to use at thanksgiving or christmas, and with all the rave reviews, I decided to give this one a try. I have NEVER made a cheescake of any kind before, so I didn't know what to look for during cooking. The only thing that suprised me is that the filling puffed up really high outside of the crust (I bought a premade vegan keebler crust as well). I have never been much of a cook, but I was TOTALLY suprised by how easy this was, and even for a first timer like me, how well it came out. Definatly not picture worthy, but definatly divine. My daughter and husband loved this and thought it came out great. Think I added a bit too much lemon juice but otherwise perfect. Here's the secret of a good vegan cheesecake-If you don't need ANYthing to go on top and have it still be awesome (I always ate regular cheesecakes with no toppings). We dug in haha more then we should have probably. Definatly must be careful, as this was too easy to make, and way too good. Definatly using at the holidays though!!!

This is a very dangerous recipe! Way too easy to make. I used a pre-made pie crust(bought at whole foods), about 75% of the lemon juice called for, and I mixed the whole thing by hand. It was very easy to get everything smooth and evenly blended, no need to dirty blender IMHO. Wonderful! Keep it away from me!
