    Call this an upside-down cake because the graham cracker bottom is on top of the cheesecake in the cooker. Once done, flip it so the crust is the bottom.

    Things To Grab

    • 1-1/2 quart souffle dish
    • Non-stick cooking spray
    • Scissors
    • Parchment paper
    • Large bowl
    • Electric mixer
    • Aluminum foil
    • Slow cooker
    • Small bowl
    • Medium saucepan
    • Medium bowl


    1. Lightly coat a 1-1/2-quart soufflé dish with non-stick cooking spray. Cut a circle out of parchment paper to fit in the bottom of the soufflé dish and a strip to go around the inside of the dish. Place parchment circle on bottom of soufflé dish. Place strip inside the dish upright at the bottom.

    2. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, 3/4 cup sugar, 1 tablespoons orange juice, flour and vanilla together until combined. Beat in eggs with mixer on low speed just until combined. Stir in 1 tablespoon orange zest and ginger. Pour filling into prepared soufflé dish. Cover dish tightly with aluminum foil.

    3. Pour water into 3-1/2- to 5-quart slow-cooker. Place soufflé dish in cooker. Cover and cook on HIGH for 1 hour.

    4. Meanwhile, combine graham cracker crumbs, cinnamon and butter in a small bowl. After 1 hour, carefully remove aluminum foil and sprinkle crumb mixture on top, gently pressing down with hands. Cover again with foil and cook, covered, for 1-1/2 hours. Carefully remove dish from cooker with hot pads and let cool completely. Place covered in refrigerator and chill 4 to 24 hours before serving.

    5. In a medium saucepan, combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup orange juice and cook over medium heat. Stir in cranberries and cook until the cranberries start to pop, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and place sauce in a bowl. Cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools.

    6. Serve cheesecake with cranberry sauce and garnish with orange zest and powdered sugar, if desired.
