How to Make Microwave Cheesecake for One or Two

Step-by-Step

  1. Whisk together the cream cheese and sour cream; beating until well blended. Add powdered sugar and blend in well; add the beaten egg- blending until smooth.
  2. Pour into 2 microwaveable coffee cups. Microwave each cup separately.for 1 minute each; then continue microwaving in 30 second bursts.until batter has firmed up around edges, but just a bit jiggly in the center. Chill 2 hours ,Sprinkle tops with crushed cookie or fresh fruit.. I can never wait the 2 hours -I eat it warm. LOL
  3. Note: try making with fruity yogurt too.
  4. Made it in one big bowl. Added a tiny bit of lemon juice to the batter. Microwaved it for 1 minute.then two 30 second bursts and then one 20 second burst. Done.
    Drizzled melted strawberry jam on top. and sprinkled with chopped nuts. It's in the fridge...but I can't say I will leave it in for the 2 hours...LOL.
