Tips

Cheesecake - Prevent Cracking

Cheesecake - Prevent Cracking

Gently beat the filling after you add the eggs and stir in the remaining ingredients by hand. Vigorous beating will allow too much air which may cause the cheesecake to puff up, then fall and crack. As a test for doneness, if the cake jiggles, return it to the oven for more baking. Inserting a knife for this purpose may cause the knife hole to grow into a large crack. Also, set a minute timer for the exact cooling time recommended in the recipe.

Professional Presentation --Brownies

Wonder how bakeries get those clean, neat, perfectly cut brownies and bar cookies? After your brownies have cooled, transfer the pan to the refrigerator for 1-2 hours. Remove and turn the entire pan of brownies out in one piece. (See my Brownie Pan Removal tip for this.) Use a long serrated bread knife and a ruler to cut your brownies into perfect squares and serve.
