Putting a cheesecake on a plate without removing it from the bottom of the pan is perilous because it wants to slip all over the place or even go skidding off. But, who wants to try to move a cheesecake from the bottom of the spring form pan to a plate? Maybe a professional, but I’m not one and probably most of my readers aren’t either. There may be a trick that makes it easy. I don’t know it yet. But, I do know a trick that will help keep the cheesecake from sliding around so much and yet you can leave it on the bottom piece of the pan. Here is what I did, with tolerable results. (I still recommend using caution when moving it or transporting it.)
(This was taken after the cheesecake was removed.)
I tore a piece of bread in half and put it under the pan to fill the area where it didn’t sit down into the bottom of the plate. Then I mashed it down onto the bread as well as I could.
A stickier type of bread, or perhaps a thin layer on jelly on each side might make this method work even better.
This is how it looked after the cheesecake was completely removed from it. Sorry I don’t have a picture with the cheesecake on the plate, or at least I don’t know where the picture is. (If you could see my photo collection you would consider that last part an understatement. ;-) )
