Can I bake my cheesecake again?

Yes, you can bake your cheesecake again in the oven even if it has been in the fridge, but make sure this time to wisely use this second chance to rescue your cheesecake.

You can attain that by setting your oven to a low temperature and allowing your cheesecake to bake slowly no more than 15-30 minutes, you must frequently check it every 5 minutes until you find that it feels firm to the touch.

How to check if my cheesecake is baked enough?

Cheesecake is a dessert that consists of 1 or more layers of a creamy filling mainly made up of cheese and biscuits as a base, this texture requires special care and effort to make a well-baked cheesecake recipe where you should monitor two main things:

  1. If the cheesecake is baked enough 
  1. If the cheesecake is done 

First, let me tell you that there are many ways to check if your cheesecake is baked enough but we will only show you the easiest and the most popular ways.

Digital thermometer method

Simply put a digital thermometer into the cheesecake centre after it has been baked for the recommended time at the optimal temperature

  1.  If the temperature reached 150°F, then your cheesecake is probably done
  1.  If the temperature does not reach 150°F, then place your cheesecake pan back into the oven to finish baking

Toothpick method

This method is based on simply sticking a clean toothpick into the centre of your cheesecake then pulling it out after a few seconds and checking for any residual batter on it. 

  1. If the toothpick is moist and has residues, then your cheesecake is undercooked.
  1. If the toothpick is dry and comes out completely clean, then your cheesecake is well done.

Observation method

 The edges of the cheesecake are usually baked before its centre which must remain pale and a little jiggly, so you can tell if your cheesecake is baked enough or not simply by looking at it. 

Here is a table of comparison between visible cheesecake texture and colour based on its condition:

How to check if my cheesecake is done? 

The most important thing when baking a cheesecake is that it is not only properly baked but also done.

Therefore to check your cheesecake doneness, simply open the oven door, rap gently but firmly the pan with a spoon, and check the following:

  1. If your cheesecake wobbles slightly and is quite dense and velvety, then your cake is baked well
  1. If your cheesecake ripples and jiggles noticeably, then your cheesecake is undercooked
