Removing London Cheesecake From Springform Tin

Asked by Forbes1011. Answered on 15th July 2017

Full question

In the London Cheesecake recipe it indicates that you should remove the springform sides as soon as it is removed from the oven. Later in the recipe it says to unmould the cheesecake when it is cold. Should you let the cheesecake cool in the tin first or remove it from the tin when it comes out of the oven?

Our answer

Nigella's London Cheesecake (from HOW TO BE A DOMESTIC GODDESS) is baked in a springform tin. The tin is put into a roasting tin filled with water and baked in this water bath as this is a very gentle way of baking and makes sure that the cheesecake has a silky texture and does not over bake.

Step 5 of the method starts with "Take the roasting tin out of the oven, then gingerly remove the springform, unwrap it and stand it on a rack to cool". This is referring to removing the springform tin from the water bath, not unspringing the tin. The cheesecake should be left in the springform tin until it has chilled properly and only then unmoulded from the tin.
