How To Use A Springform Pan – Questions and Answers 

 

Cheesecakes are egg based, and they need low heat.  Position baking rack in center of oven and place cheesecake in center of middle oven rack.  Place a shallow pan full of water on the lower rack in the oven.  The water will also help minimize cracking in the top of the cheesecake.  Check out my web page on How To Bake A Perfect Cheesecake.

 

Question:

I am about to undertake making my first cheesecake.  I bought a springform pan at grocery store. Since I have to bake the cheesecake by setting the pan in water, I tested the pan to see if water leaked in or out.   It did!  Is this something to worry about, or will the cake batter and cheesecake mix be thick enough not to leak?  I’m anxious to get this project going, but now I’m not sure about the pan.  Help!

 

Answer:

Wrap the outside (bottom and sides) of the springform pan with two layers of aluminum foil to prevent any leaking.

    I don’t thing there’s a need to put that much foil. A normal cake didn’t leak at all when I just baked it. It’s perfect…it’s meant to hold a regular batter and other things, I’m sure, as long as it’s regular thickness.

    The bigger worry is not the batter leaking out but the water seeping in. Needless to say this will ruin your cake or cheesecake. The double foil is Extra Protection that rather than a single sheet

      YOU CAN ALSO JUST PUT A SEPERATE PAN OF WATER UNDER THE CHEESECAKE, ON THE RACK BELOW YOUR CHEESECAKE.
