cheesecake tip(s)



I just made my first cheesecake that the top didn't crack!


I put it in a larger pan of water while baking (after covering the bottom of the spring form pan with foil) and once it was done I cracked the oven open to let it cool for an hour before I removed it and placed it on the cooling rack ....


(I made ginger cheesecake)

Re: cheesecake tip(s)

I make pumpkin cheesecake for Thanksgiving every year. I use a water bath too. I took mine straight out of the oven though and cooled it on a cooling rack. Last year I made a white chocolate cheesecake for Christmas... I need to find that recipe again.

Re: cheesecake tip(s)

I've never tried this book, but you could see if your library has it


"The Perfect Cheesecake" by Bernice Hurst


(someone on another forum recommended it - I've yet to see if my library has it)

You did the right thing! Water bath is one of right things to do whenever you are making a cheesecake. In addition to that, you have to be very careful not to over mix the ingredients and not to over bake. The beater / mixer should only be in low to medium speed during mixing. The temperature must start with 200c then decrease to 180 then to 150 then turn it off completely, let it rest for 30 minutes and leave the door ajar for another 30 minutes before transferring the cheesecake to cooling rack. Before, putting the cake inside the fridge, let it cool outside for about 2 hours. Let it stay inside the ref for 6-8 hours before serving. Yes, it takes a lot of time and effort but it will surely be one of the best cheesecakes! ;-) Btw, what I love to bake is New York Cheesecake :-)

Re: cheesecake tip(s)

Isn't there some kind of quick recipe for a cheesecake? Something like cream cheese and cool whip?

Love cheesecake. Apple crunch pies, pumpkin pie, cherry pie, peach pie...

All the good stuff I never have. Stinks...

Re: cheesecake tip(s)

I asked my wife if she would make a cheesecake sometime soon. She just smiled.

She still keeps me guessing.

Re: cheesecake tip(s)

Knott - how 'bout you make one & surprise her?


if you like "turtle" cheesecake - just make a plain cheesecake (use chocolate graham crackers/wafer cookies for the crust) , throw in a cup of mini chocolate chips, and have some caramel ice-cream topping = yummy
