Tips on How to Make a Perfect Cheesecake

One of the most delicious and elegant dessert is cheesecake. It has the classic smoothness and creaminess that all that everyone loves. There are many people who don't like to bake this cake because it is a very daunting process. Moreover, perfecting it seems to be very difficult. For those who want to learn to bake them perfectly, the only thing they need to master is how to get it creamy. Below are tips to help you bake a perfect cake.

If you are new to baking, then do not expect to perfect it on the first try. However, you can make it good enough by making a really good and smooth batter. Moreover, you should make sure that you follow the cooling process and temperature settings properly. You can make the cake tastier than it is when you let it stand after baking until it cools down and chill it for 24 hours. You can wow everyone on your first baking attempt by doing the things you can control.

Make a good batter

You have to make sure that all ingredients that you will use in baking are in at room temperature prior to starting mixing them. Moreover, make sure that the eggs and cheeses re thoroughly mixed together until they seem creamy prior to adding other creams and liquid ingredients. Always choose the best cream cheese you can find in the market such as Swiss, cottage cheese, or cheddar cheese.

Mix it correctly but don't over mix

If you are using an electric mixer to combine the ingredients, make sure that you combine them until the mixture becomes creamy and lump-free. Cracking is the most common problem when baking. These cracks are a result when bubbles are created in the mixture that is caused by too much beating.

Cook it slowly

A low temperature is needed to bake a perfect cheesecake. Your cake will get lots of cracks if you heat it up or cool it down too quickly. After the baking time is complete, do not remove the cake from the oven. Leave it inside until it goes completely cold. This will prevent the formation of cracks. This method also applies for cooling. Let the cake cool completely before removing it from the tin.

In order to make the tastiest, creamiest and cheesiest cheesecake to treat, you should always use a good cream cheese. This is because it has the highest fat content that will give the smoothness that you want. You can top the cake with fruits such as berries, orange slices or shredded coconut.

  1. I do love cheesecake! What's funny is I can bake like nobody's business (decorating? not so much), but my cooking skills are non-existent.


I would love to have you leave me your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by.
