24 oz cream cheese, softened

1 cup granulated sugar

01 cup sour cream

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

4 large eggs

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt For the Frosting:

4 oz cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C). Line the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan with parchment paper and lightly grease the sides to prevent sticking.

In a large bowl, beat together 24 oz of softened cream cheese and granulated sugar until smooth and creamy.

Mix in sour cream and vanilla extract until well combined.

Add eggs one at a time, beating just until blended after each addition.

Pour half of the cheesecake mixture into the prepared pan, spreading it evenly across the bottom.

In a separate bowl, mix together melted butter, brown sugar, and ground cinnamon until you have a smooth, caramel-like consistency.

Drizzle the cinnamon mixture over the layer of cheesecake in the pan, then use a knife to lightly swirl it into the batter.

In the remaining cheesecake mixture, gently fold in all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt until just combined.

Spread this mixture evenly over the cinnamon layer in the pan.

Bake for 60-70 minutes, or until the center is set and the edges are golden brown.

Once baked, allow the cheesecake to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.

While the cheesecake is cooling, prepare the frosting. In a mixing bowl, beat together 4 oz of softened cream cheese, softened butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.

Once the cheesecake has cooled, spread the frosting evenly over the top.

Refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 4 hours before serving to allow it to set.

When ready to serve, slice into decadent portions and indulge in the divine flavors of this Cinnamon Roll Cheesecake.

Serving and Storage Tips:

Serving Suggestions:

For a stunning presentation, dust the top of the cheesecake with a sprinkle of ground cinnamon or garnish with cinnamon sticks.

Serve each slice with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra decadent touch.

Pair with a cup of freshly brewed coffee or a hot mug of spiced chai tea to complement the rich flavors of the cheesecake.

Storage Instructions:

Store any leftover cheesecake in an airtight container or cover the springform pan with plastic wrap and aluminum foil.

Refrigerate the cheesecake for up to 3-4 days to maintain its freshness and creamy texture.

To freeze the cheesecake, wrap individual slices tightly in plastic wrap and aluminum foil or place the whole cheesecake in a freezer-safe container. It can be stored in the freezer for up to 1-2 months.

Thaw frozen cheesecake slices in the refrigerator overnight before serving. Enjoy chilled or bring to room temperature for 30 minutes for optimal taste and texture.

Reheating Instructions:

If you prefer a warm slice of cheesecake, reheat individual portions in the microwave for 20-30 seconds or in a preheated oven at 325°F (163°C) for 5-10 minutes until warmed through.

Be cautious not to overheat the cheesecake as it may affect its creamy consistency.

Related Recipes:


Can I use pre-made cinnamon roll dough for this recipe?

While pre-made cinnamon roll dough can be convenient, we recommend making the cinnamon swirl layer from scratch for the best flavor and texture. However, if you’re short on time, you can experiment with pre-made dough, ensuring it’s rolled out thin enough to layer between the cheesecake batter.

Can I substitute ingredients in the cheesecake batter or frosting?

Yes, you can customize the recipe to suit your preferences. For example, you may use light cream cheese or Greek yogurt instead of sour cream for a lighter version. Additionally, you can adjust the sweetness by reducing or increasing the amount of sugar in both the batter and frosting according to your taste.

How do I prevent cracks from forming on the surface of the cheesecake?

To minimize the risk of cracks, it’s essential to avoid overmixing the cheesecake batter and to bake it in a water bath. Additionally, letting the cheesecake cool gradually in the turned-off oven with the door slightly ajar can help prevent sudden temperature changes that may cause cracks. However, if cracks do appear, don’t worry— the cream cheese frosting can easily conceal them.

Can I make this cheesecake ahead of time for a special occasion?

Absolutely! This cheesecake can be prepared ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days before serving. Alternatively, you can freeze the cheesecake (without the frosting) for up to 1-2 months. Simply thaw it in the refrigerator overnight before adding the frosting and serving. This make-ahead option makes it perfect for entertaining or for enjoying a slice whenever the craving strikes!


With its creamy texture, warm cinnamon swirls, and luxurious cream cheese frosting, our Cinnamon Roll Cheesecake is a true masterpiece that will elevate any occasion. Whether you’re treating yourself to a slice or sharing it with friends and family, this indulgent dessert is guaranteed to leave everyone craving for more. So why wait? Gather your ingredients and get ready to savor every heavenly bite of this irresistible delight!
