I don't have access to baking parchment and I need to make a cheesecake tomorrow. Is there any substitute that I can use for baking parchment?


Go the old-fashioned route and simply butter your pan.
Worked for our grandmothers, still works today ;-)

    Agreed ... my mom never used parchment when baking a cheesecake. The important thing was a springform pan, and to make sure that the base was set so the flat side was up (so that you could slip a nice in tight across the surface). – Joe Feb 17 '15 at 13:59

Even cheaper is using regular ole white computer printer paper sprayed with oil spray or baking spray. Toss it without feeling wasteful. I have used it up to 450 degrees. Will brown slightly, but has never burned. Try it yourself first with nothing on it so that you will be confident to use it with your breads.
