What kind of pineapple do I use?

You can use fresh or canned pineapples for the creamy pineapple cheesecake. However, make sure the fresh pineapple is peeled properly with no traces of skin or the core. Similarly, for canned pineapple chunks or slices, drain the liquid before adding the pineapples to the cheesecake.

What is the secret to making good cheesecake?

The secret to making good cheesecake lies in the cream cheese batter and the ingredients used to make it. Always use high-quality ingredients for a cheesecake with the perfect consistency and look. Also, to avoid a lumpy batter, use ingredients at room temperature. And lastly, don’t overmix the batter, as it will cause the cheesecake to crack. Just mix it enough for the ingredients to be well combined.

Why is my cheesecake runny?

If your cheesecake turns out runny, it means it is either undercooked or you used cold
ingredients for the batter. Therefore:

  • Use all the ingredients at room temperature.
  • Bake the cheesecake for a few more minutes and let it rest for a couple of hours for it to
    set properly.
  • Another way to ensure that your cheesecake bakes evenly and to perfection is to use
    the water bath method to bake it.

How do I make my cheesecake firmer?

To make your cheesecake firmer, refrigerate it for 6 to 8 hours after baking and before serving. If you don’t let it set in the refrigerator, it will have a mousse-like consistency. 

What makes a cheesecake set?

To help your cheesecake set to perfection:

  • You can add more cheese to the batter.
  • Use ingredients at room temperature.
  • Don’t overmix the batter.
  • Lastly, let it sit in the refrigerator for a couple of hours before serving.

What happens if you overbeat cheesecake?

Overbeating the cheesecake batter is a big NO! Why? Because it incorporates air bubbles in the batter, which burst while baking, resulting in a cracked and rubbery cheesecake. And nobody likes a cracked and rubbery cheesecake!

Can pineapple cheesecake be frozen?

Yes, you can freeze the pineapple cheesecake. Let it cool and set it in the refrigerator for a few hours before wrapping it in plastic or aluminum foil. Now place it in the freezer, and it will stay good for up to 3 months. 

To serve, thaw it in the refrigerator and slice it up before serving. However, make sure that you freeze and thaw only once. If you re-freeze it again after thawing, it will lose its taste and texture.
