I was wondering if I can bake a cheesecake directly on the cardboard cake circle in the springform pan?
I've only ever made cheesecakes for family and I always get my pan base back, but I need to make cheesecakes for a church event sooo I need advice.. what would you do?
Yes, go for it. Cover the board w/foil completely.
Great question!! Thanks for the advice!!
thanks! I'm going to go make a cheese cake right now!
You can also line your springform pan with parchment paper--then after baking and cooling it's really easy to transfer your cheesecake to a cardboard or other cake plate--comes off of the springform base easily, parchment paper peels away from cheesecake crust and cheesecake stays together!
No it will turn out to be an oil soaked mess. You will want to put a frsh circle on it anyways. Wrap your pan bottom in foil, and put the lip down, spray the foil,and put in pan. When done take a knife around the edge, put in fridge. Put a circle on top, flip cake out, take bottom off, put new circle on, flip back over.
We bake directly in a springform pan. We spray it and do not need parchment. After it comes out of the office, we let it cool for a couple of hours before cooling it in the refrigerator over night.
When we get ready to sell or transport the cheesecake, we take a large spatula and transfer the cheesecake from the springform base onto a cardboard round.
