- How to tell when cheesecake is done? 1 answer
I have just made a cheesecake, (not my first), but will admit that for me it is a bit of a guessing game to know when it is perfectly done. I know that the sign is when the middle still jiggles, but how big of a middle? Dime size, nickel size, quarter size, or salad plate size? Fortunately, luck was on my side and it turned out perfect, but not without worrying about its doneness! Other than the "jiggle", is there any concrete way of knowing when it is done? Is it possible to use a thermometer for the middle and what would the temperature be? Luckily, even if a cheesecake is under or over done, it's still delicious, but when serving it to company, it an added bonus if it turns out perfect! Any tips?
