Instructions

Crust:

  • Add in eggs, one at a time, and mix just until combined.
  • Add pineapple, cream of coconut, sour cream, rum extract, lime, lime zest, and coconut extract and beat until combined.
  • Pour filling into the prepared crust, smothered the top with a spatula.
  • Add 1 ½ cups of water to the bottom of the Instant Pot.

  • Spread on top of the cooled cheesecake and sprinkle toasted coconut over top.
  • Garnish with whipped cream and lime slices.
  • Chill for two more hours before slicing and serving.

Notes

Double-check your cheese— it should the BLOCK kind, not spreadable. Spreadable cream cheese has ingredients that keep it soft, so it won’t provide the necessary structure for this cake.
If you can’t find coconut cream where you are, feel free to use heavy cream. You can also flavor it with coconut extract.
Want chunks in your cake? Use replace half the crushed with chunks of pineapples.
