How to Fix Your Cheesecake – A Troubleshooting Guide

A cheesecake should be relatively trouble free but occasionally problems do come up. Over the years, we’ve been asked the following questions. “What’s the easiest way to make crumbs for my crust?” Lots of folks use a food processor; we don’t bother. We use a heavy duty zipper-type plastic bag and crush the crackers or cookies with a rolling pin a few at a time. We save the plastic bag for the next crust. If we’re in a hurry, we just use packaged graham cracker crumbs rather than crushing crackers. “I have lumps in my cheesecake. How do avoid those?” Most likely the lumps are from globules of cream cheese in your batter. Before adding any of the other ingredients, beat the cream cheese and granulated sugar together until completely mixed. The sugar crystals will cut through the cream cheese breaking up the globules. In the heat of the oven, the sugar will melt further breaking up any pieces. If your recipe calls for chocolate, either white or dark, the lumps could be chocolate. When the chocolate is mixed into the cool batter, it solidifies and creates lumps. To avoid that, make sure your melted chocolate is hot, well above the melt point. With your mixer running, drizzle the hot chocolate into the batter. With the chocolate hotter, it will disperse before setting up. “I bake my cheesecake for...

Initially meant for Alexa-enabled devices like the Amazon Echo and the Echo dot, this feature has now paved its way to the website and the Amazon app. The Amazon’s Choice badge is a recognition given to select products that meet a certain criteria. The criteria are a closely guarded secret; however, judging from products that received the badge – highly rated products and well-priced ones with Prime Shipping are the ones usually selected. Amazon’s Choice vs Best Sellers Amazon’s Choice is mainly a suggestion for customers buying a product for a specific query for the first time. So, if you have looked for pet seat cover for the first time, this would be on top of the list. When you asked Alexa for a car seat cover for the first time, Alexa will suggest products with the badge first.
