Tips for What to do if Cheesecake Cracks in the Oven and Tips to Prevent Cheesecake from Cracking

Here are a few tips to help avoid this from happening, and what to do if your cheesecake has already formed a crack on the top/surface of the cake.

  •  Do not over-mix the cheesecake batter once you have added the eggs to the mixture. Once the eggs are added, mix at a low speed just until combined. Eggs tend to "trap" air bubbles, which are a factor in whether or not the surface of the cake will form a crack
  • Do not over-bake the cheesecake. The center part of the cake should still be "jiggly" when you remove it from the oven. Check the cake well before baking time stipulated in the recipe directions to ensure that you have time to remove the cake if it is done. Oven temperatures do tend to vary, so it is a good idea to set the timer for at least 10 - 15 minutes earlier than the recommended time, check the cake, and then resume the timer accordingly.
  • Carefully remove the baked cheesecake from the oven, and allow the cheesecake to cool as gradually as possible. A sudden change in temperature can cause the surface of the cake to form a crack.

What can you do if your cheesecake already has a crack in it?

It can be very discouraging to have taken the time and effort, (and cost!) to make a cheesecake, and then to see a crack having formed across the surface when it is baking in the oven, or when you remove it from the oven.

Although this scenario is disappointing (I have had this occur several times), the cake is definitely not a waste! It probably bothers you more than anyone else, and it does not affect the taste of your delectable cake! You know the cake is cracked, but no one else needs to!

Simply cover up the crack(s) with a garnish of fruit, or fruit sauce/topping, or a caramel or chocolate sauce.

The garnish you add on top will serve to enhance the cheesecake flavour and appearance, and you will still be happy and satisfied with your scrumptious cake!
