    How did you get water into the cake? Most cheesecake recipes don't call for water.

    What brand of cream cheese did you use? Some have a higher water content than others. Uhhh, sorry to ask this, but you did use cream cheese and not cream cheese spread right?

    Cheesecakes don't usually have margarine either, except for their biscuit base or crust. Also, cheesecakes should only be baked till the center looks and feels "dry". If baked too long, you will get a HUGE crack through the center of the cake. Very ugly!

    Oooohhh. That's a gelatin cheesecake. The ones you get from cafes and restaurants are usually baked. Be careful not to keep gelatin cheesecakes for more than 3 days, especially if they contain raw eggs, even if they are kept in the fridge or freezer.

    Just remember to keep within minutes of the recommended timing and shut down the oven once the center stops looking wet and isn't sticky. You should then run a thin knife around the sides of the springform pan to seperate the cake from the sides of the pan and then leave the cake for another hour in the oven to "cool" and firm up.

    Running the knife to seperate the cake from the pan will ensure that the cake does not crack around the edges as it cools and shrinks away from the pan.

    Pooh Huat's cream cheese are ok, they're half the price of Philadelphia so you'll save a lot if you bake often, but they are a little harder and their flavor is also somewhat different. I find Philadelphia's flavor a little better.

    Not spoil, and this only applies to gelatin cheese cakes with fresh eggs.

    Eggs may contain salmonella (a type of bacteria) that can cause severe food poisioning that sometimes leads to death in very young children, old folks and the physically weak.

    Read about it here: Salmonella Infections

    The most common incidences are from people who eat homemade mayonnaise, ice creams, cheesecakes and other desserts that call for raw eggs.

    One way around this is to use pasteurized eggs, which are available from some baking supply shops and from gourmet supermarkets.
