Can I use a 9×13 pan instead of a springform pan?
You can use almost any baking pan for your cheesecake. If your recipe calls for a 10-inch springform pan, a 9×13 pan, 9-inch tube pan or 10-inch Bundt cake pan would be good substitutes. You can also use multiple pans for the batter, though you’ll need to double the crust.
What size pan can I use instead of 9×13?
An 8” square pan and 9” round pan can be used interchangeably for cake and bar recipes. A recipe written for a 9” x 13” pan can also be made in two 9” round pans; one 9” round and one 8” round, or two 8” round pans. Baking times may vary due to slightly different depths of batter in the various pan combinations.
What size cheesecake pan should I get?
Pan Sizes And Materials The most useful size pan for a home cheesecake recipe would be an 8″ or 10″ pan. Springform pans are made from tin, aluminum and even silicone. Just like the cheesecake pan they can be found as small as 4.5 inches up to 12 inches.
Can I cook cheesecake in a glass pan?
A Glass Pan You can bake a cheesecake in an oven-safe glass pan such as Pyrex. However, if you’re going to use this pan, you should turn down your recipe’s recommended temp by 25° F. While glass pans tend to heat more evenly than metal ones, they also act as insulators.
What Tin is best for cheesecake?
A springform or loose-bottomed cake tin is the best choice for baking cheesecakes because you can remove the cheesecake from the tin easily, but muffin tins or any other cake tin will work fine. If you use a regular cake tin, grease it well and line the bottom with baking parchment.
Why does my cheesecake taste like metal?
Metal pans can tarnish and they can impart a metallic taste to a cheesecake stored on the base. When you slice your cheesecake on a metal base, you will mar it. You can purchase both metal and silicone pans with glass bases.
