Cheesecake Base Removal?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

So Im very good at making cheesecakes, but i have a problem when it comes to removing the cheesecake from the bottom base.

 

I do use wax paper to make it easier to remove the cheesecake but i find it that most of the time the paper gets to wet for some reason and i just can't seem to find a way to remove it from the pan.

 

Are there any solutions to this? I also read just use the cake board right in the pan as you bake the cheesecake.

Welcome to ChefTalk @BettyRose

For myself, I just made my very first Cheesecake EVER in my life, I know... but I had put a round of parchment in the bottom of the pan prior to starting and buttered every thing well.  

When the cake was cooled completely I put it in the `fridge for 24 hours and used a large offset spatula to help me remove the bottom from the cake.  

It worked out okay for me.

Hello @BettyRose and welcome to ChefTalk! 

 

This is what a springform pan is perfectly made for.  Not expensive to buy and saves you all the work of trying to get a cheesecake out of a pan looking nice.....lol.

1)  Run a paring knife around the edge.  Check for metal shavings if you are using an aluminum pan.

 

2)  Warm the bottom over a low flame.  Move it around slowly.

 

It will come out easily.

Forget the wax paper and use parchment instead, even if it does get wet its a lot easier to remove. I do this with all of my cakes for close to 30 years now.
