How to tell if cheesecake is cooked with Curtis Stone

Sharing buttons:

There's nothing better than a perfectly cooked cheesecake

and what that means is you have to take it out of the oven

right at the right time.

Sometimes the timing and the temperature of the oven

will fluctuate, so I want to show you a little tip

that will ensure that your cheesecake is cooked just perfectly.

Our cheesecake out of the oven.

It's been in at 160 degrees for about 50 minutes.

So you can see that the cheesecake has that perfect little wobble

and you know that it's gonna cool and just be the most sublime texture.

I want to show you an example of one that's been a little overcooked.

So this one you can see

there's some caramelisation on the top of the cheesecake

which probably indicates it's been cooked at too high a temperature

or it was left in the oven for too long.

And you can also see these cracks all the way through it.

And this cheesecake actually has white chocolate in it

which binds it even better.

So if it wasn't a white chocolate cheesecake,

those cracks would be a lot worse.

So now you know how to cook the perfect cheesecake,

what's stopping you? Get busy.
