Notes:

  • Start with ingredients at room temperature. It mixes better and helps the cake to become creamy.
  • Wrap bottom of Springform with foil and place pan into large roasting dish filled with 1/2-in. of water while baking. it helps the cake to bake more evenly and keep shte cake moist.
  • After baking, have the cake cool down in the oven with the oven turned off and the door open. It helps to prevent cracking.
  • When you are able to hold the Springform pan, place in refrigerator overnight.
  • To get the cake out of the Springform; heat a cup of water. Place a butter knife in the water then dry with a towel. Using an up and down motion, loosen the cake from the sides of a pan, then open the ring and remove from the cake.
  • To place onto plate, remove Springform bottom and slowly remove the parchment paper while placing onto plate.
  • It’s a lot easier than it looks, it just takes practice.
