Cheesecake in a gas oven... recipe help, please!

keylimesqueez | Oct 27, 2012 12:08 PM

Hi. I have been given a recipe from my Aunt for cheesecake. In the baking instructions it says to bake at 350 for 1 hour then turn oven off and leave in for 1 more hour. Now, I have read on other recipes that use this method that this will not work with a gas oven as the heat escapes too quickly. Is this true? What should I do to modify?

Here is the complete recipe:

Butter Large Spring Pan

Bake @ 350 degrees

1 ½ cups sugar
4 eggs –separated
½ tsp vanilla
½ lemon (juice only) = 1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 lb cream cheese
1 lb ricotta cheese
3 tbsp flour
3 tbsp cornstarch
¼ lb melted butter
1 ½ pints sour cream

Whip 4 egg whites stiff

In a large bowl mix, sugar, egg yolks, vanilla and lemon juice
Add cream cheese and ricotta cheese mix again.
Add flour, corn starch and melted butter mix again.
Add sour cream and mix
Add the egg whites ad fold in.

Pour into spring form pan it should be ½” from top of pan.

Bake at 350 for 1 hour turn oven off and leave in 1 more hour.
