Upside Down Cheese Cake

Upside Down Cheese Cake 

I saw this recipe and decided to try a recipe of my own

2 8 ounce block of cream cheese soften
1/2 cup of sour cream soften
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
Sweetener (i used a mixture of pure powdered sucrose and powderedErth.)

1 cup mixed nuts (I used walnuts and pecans), finely ground with 3 packages of Splenda

Preheat Oven 350o

In a bowl mix cream cheese, sour cream, and vanilla. Mix well and add sweetener too taste. Mix in eggs. Pour into glass pie plate lined with parchment paper.

Sprinkle topping of the top and bake for 10 minutes. Place a piece of foil over the top and continue baking for 25 minutes. Shut oven off and leave cheese cake in for another 10 minutes.
Let cool.

This cake tastes fantastic warm... thus the picture being only one slice but when cooled it is the best cheesecake I have ever tasted.

~Happy Low Carbing~


  1. Looking at making this for dinner tonight.

    What is powderedErth?


  2. JB JB
    It is powdered erythritol:)

  3. Carb count please??

  4. Could you please include the carb count? Net carbs?
    I am a newly diagnosed diabetic...Thank you

  5. I am going to have to try this pie/cake.... Looks delicious.... I've been lowcarbing myself for many many year.... I did a bunch of postings back when AOL had message boards and website access.... I used to go by back in those days..... Thanks for this recipe....

  6. How much sweetener? (I'm a terrible cook).

  7. I'm assuming you mean powdered sucralose. I'm reading powdered sucrose, which would be powdered sugar :)

  8. I really want to try this but need to know the nutritional info of this recipe
    as I am on a very strict plan right now. Please share the carb count.

  9. I ust read packaging on each ingredient for carb count...

  10. I think she means powdered erythritol. I have a blend of powdered stevia and erythritol...which is excellent. As far as the carb count, no clue

  11. carb count would depend on how much sweetener you use, what size dish you use, etc. so just add up the carb count for the whole pie and decide how much is in your serving.
    just taste the filling without sweetener and add to taste, adding up the carbs along the way. wonder if you could use part powdered/part liquid sucralose to keep the count lower?

  12. You can use Stevia and Truvia or a Alcohol sweetner and there will be no carbs in the sugar. I would say about 9 net carbs per slice. About 12 slices per pie.

  13. You can use Spend a which I always use. I am used to not eating much sugar so I usually can cut it in half. But just taste it. DO BEWARE. Erythritol ? so. Caused digestive upset in a lot of people. So if you can stick to one slice, good for you. If you sneak 2..wait for the terrible stomach cramps and diarreah. You can add lemon zest to the cheesecake with a bit of lemon juice to add a different flavor. 😊🤗🤗
