Cheesecake Pour 2. New York Cheesecake is supposed to have a deep nut brown crust on the top, no pale cheesecakes qualify for the New Yorker, and you can't get the brown crust in a water bath. Run knife around rim of pan to loosen.
Pour cheesecake batter in the pan. Pour cheesecake batter into springform pan (no need to clean it even if some cake crumbs are still in it. Pour into the prepared cake pan and smooth the top.
Place the springform pan inside another larger pan.
Garnish and presentation Pour the cheesecake batter into the springform pan on top of the crust.
Microwave until you see A bubble in the center, and then STOP cooking. Place the cheesecake in a water bath. The tighter it's packed, the less likely it will fall apart when cutting the cheesecake.
