Pans for Cheesecake

Colleen | Jun 12, 2003 01:48 PM

I need some help here. An Israeli friend has kindly translated (from the Hebrew) a yummy-sounding recipe for Halvah Cheesecake. Truly, it sounds like a heart attack on a plate--the best kind of cheesecake.

What she and I are puzzling over, though, is the pan size. The recipe simply calls for a No. 22 pan. It doesn't even specify the pan type.

I'm assuming that since this is a cheesecake, that the pan type is springform. However, I have no clue about the size. Is this some kind of European sizing? Does No. 22 mean a 22-cm (8.5-inch) pan?

Thanks for your help.
