How to Remove Cheesecake From a Springform Pan

By Rachel Hurt

Cheesecake is a smooth and creamy wonder that many of us avoid making at home. Cheesecake can be a fickle sort and has its requirements to come out edible. One thing that gives some people a lot of trouble is getting the bottom of the cake off the springform pan. With a little bit of prep, this will be a problem no longer. Springform pans are the perfect design for cheesecakes because the sides are removable and allow for less damage to the cake during removal.

Remove Cheesecake From a Springform Pan

Step 1

Cool and refrigerate your cheesecake for 2 to 3 hours.


Run a sharp knife around the inside edge. This will release the sides of the cheesecake from the pan ring. Unlatch the sides and remove them.

Step 3

Place a paper plate on top of the cheesecake. Gently flip the cheesecake over.

Step 4

Take off the bottom of the pan. Peel the parchment paper away. Do this gently so that you don't remove any of the bottom crust.

Step 5

Place your serving dish on the bottom. Flip it over.

Step 6

Remove the paper plate. Cut and serve your cheesecake.
