How Can I Make A Smaller Banoffee Cheesecake?

Asked by tiramisini. Answered on 8th April 2022

Full question

I want to make the Banoffee Cheesecake in a 6-inch springform pan, how do I adjust the quantities? I want a smaller portion so would prefer a 6-inch springform but unsure about reducing quantities, cooking temperature, and time.

Our answer

Nigella's Banoffee Cheesecake (from KITCHEN) is a banana-flavoured cheesecake with an easy-to-make toffee sauce. The recipe is for a 20cm (8-inch) springform pan and serves approximately 10 people.

To convert to a smaller 15cm (6-inch) pan in theory you would need to use 60% of the ingredients quantities, so 360g (skin-on weight) of bananas etc. The oven temperature is usually the same but the baking time will be shorter and the cheesecake should still be cooked in a water bath. We would estimate that the baking time will be about ¾ of the original baking time, so about 50 minutes. But we would suggest baking for 30 minutes and then checking the cheesecake regularly after that as ovens do vary and calculating the baking time precisely can be tricky. The cheesecake should be set on top and with just a slight wobble in the centre. However, we would mention that as we have not tried the cheesecake in this size, we are unable to guarantee the results.
