Quick tips for the perfect cheesecake:
A water bath is crucial when baking some cheesecakes. It will ensure that the cake bakes evenly throughout.
Avoid overbeating, which introduces more air than necessary into the cream cheese mixture. This will help prevent cracking. It’s also generally best to have all ingredients come to room temperature before preparing.
Springform pans are a lifesaver when making cheesecakes.
