Step One

Preheat oven to 350 deg F. Grease the bottom and sides of a 9″ springform pan. If you don’t have springform pan, you can use a regular circular cake pan. I didn’t have a springform pan on hand, and it worked just fine! If you are using a regular pan, make sure to grease the sides as well.

Step Two

Cream together butter, sugar and eggs.

Step Three

Add in cocoa & food coloring until it becomes red or pink in color.

Step Four

Mix salt and vanilla in buttermilk and add with the flour – one cup at a time. If you do not have buttermilk, you can separately make buttermilk with equal parts regular milk & vinegar. Leave until it curdles a little bit, and voila! Buttermilk. Once the buttermilk forms, add it to the mixture.

Step Five

Mix baking soda and vinegar separately. Do not beat after adding this mixture. Simply pour on top of the batter.

Step Ten

Add one egg at a time, mixing after each egg.

Step Eleven

When eggs have been thoroughly mixed into the cream cheese add flour, vanilla and lemon juice, mix well.

Step Twelve

Add sour cream and beat well.

Step Thirteen

Divide the cheesecake batter into a bowl for each food coloring color you have. Ideally, you should have the below colors. If you don’t have them, and don’t have the proper colors to mix, any fun color will do the trick! Mix the colors with the cheesecake mixture thoroughly.

  • Purple
  • Red
  • Yellow
  • Light blue
  • Green
  • Orange

Delicious! My tie dye cheesecake turned out almost perfect. I read the flour ingredient for the cheesecake incorrectly, so the cheesecake topping was not as fluffy & cheesey as it was supposed to be. However, my family & I thoroughly enjoyed it! It brought me right back to staying at Pop Century resort, and looking forward to my 2021 trip!!! Make your tie dye cheesecake today.
