Hey all! So glad I found this website... I love cooking (when I have the time, that is! LOL)
Anyway, I have a recipe for an awesome cheesecake and my problem is it calls for a 8" springform pan... I have a 9" and I can't get the cooking time right. If I cook it for the same amount of time as the 8", it's overdone. Any ideas??? (I've listed the cooking directions below)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Spray the springform pan with nonstick vegetable oil cooking spray. Set aside. In a shallow roasting pan big enough to fit the cake pan, pour about 1-inch of water and place it on the center rack of the oven to preheat.
Pour batter into the greased springform pan. Place pan into the heated water bath. Bake for 15 minutes, and then lower the oven temperature to 275 degrees F. Continue baking for 1 1/2 hours, or until top is light golden brown and cake is pulling away from the sides of the pan. Turn the oven off when finished cooking and leave the cake in the oven to cool for 3 more hours. (This will keep the cake nice and tall.) Then remove cake and refrigerate before serving. Serve chilled.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
