Disaster!!!

Baked Peach Yogurt Cheesecake today. I wanted to bake this cheesecake since last one two week ago. Before I could take a photo of the cheesecake and it becomes THIS!!! Darn darn darn…

I’m already very sad and groan in pain cause my thigh and toes got scald by the hot cheesecake. My mom she wasn’t asking me am I alright and yet still provoke me say “see lah take what photo one whole cake gone already”.

Arghh… damn I put a lot of afford in the Baked Peach Yogurt Cheesecake. While I’m trying to take the photo of the cheesecake and it fall frontward on me. Can you imagine how hot a cheesecake which merely out from oven? OUCH~~~

Hi Jas, I am glad you are okay. I did this cake quite a few months back. Firstly, it took forever to bake... 2 hours! Then, guess what? I had the same fate as you. As I was removing it from the cake tin, it tipped and smashed on the table... Then, I realised that it was wet (not like Alex Goh's photo lah). I guess I did not drain the peach and the liquid gets into the cheesecake and that's why it took me more than 2 hours to bake it. I have not tried this recipe again since my last disaster. Scared scared liao... By the way, did you drain your peach for long time?

Hi Connie,

Thanks for your concern, wah 2 hours so long?! The cheesecake I took 2 hours plus to baked is his Boston Cheesecake. Did you miss out the flour? The one I drop I totally forgotten about the flour and it kinda wet in the center. The one I baked yesterday with flour added it quite okay firm on the center and moist from inside. Or is it possible you did not cream the cheese mixture till “Thick” form? It should be very creamy. So far I’ve come across my own cheesecake they are “wet” before chill and they are slightly firm after it chill well also it depend how you store your cheesecake in the refrigerator.

I did not drain the peach either when I took them out from the tin in halves, slices and set aside. When the cracker base is ready I just attach those peach slices on the side of the pan.

Hi Jas, since you bake cheesecake frequently. I would like to ask you some dumb questions.

1. Do we leave the cake in the tin to cool down and put it in the fridge for chilling? Or do we have to remove the cake once it is out of oven to cool?

2. If I want to give the whole cheesecake as a gift, how do I transfer it from the loose base cake tin or springform cake tin to the base? (I dont know what is it called. The round base which the cake is sitting on when we buy cake from cake shop...)

Thanks in advance...

Hi Connie,

No questions is dumb my dear. Aren’t we learning from asking. :wink:

Base on Alex Goh’s latest “Fantastic Cheesecake” cookbook. For cooling: Leave the cake in the pan and let it cool to room temperature. Then cover it with cling film or foil to prevent the cakes from dying and absorb the odors in the refrigerator. Refrigerator it for 5 hours or overnight.

Normally I bake cheesecake with greaseproof paper on the side and base. So the cake won’t stick to the side when removing from the tin slowly remove the paper from the side.

And for transferring the cake I can’t think a better way other than transfer the cake with the paper from the base to the round aluminum cake base.
