"This recipe is very much like the one I have used for over 20 years. To stop the cake from cracking while cooking, leave cake in oven after turning off the heat, leave oven door ajar. Ten minutes lat..." See moreer, run a thin bladed knife around the edge to release the cake from the pan, put back in oven and let cool until oven is cold. Take out of oven and let cake cool completely to room temperature before placing in cooler or fridge. I have used this method for many years professionally and found that it works every time. The main trick is not to overcook the cake, cook only until the centre is "jiggely" not firm. It will firm up as it cools."
"I made this for a dinner party, and it turned out perfectly. No cracks-- the secret? Don't put the oven on 350. It's best to bake it at a lower temp. I put it on about 330 or so (and 55 minutes). Also..." See more, make sure that you cool it in the oven before you put it in the refridgerator: too soon and it will crack."
"Okay this is for sure a 5 star recipie! A couple things though. If you do not add your own flavoring it can be pretty boring. I added lemon extract, lemon juice and lemon zest. I served it with ras pu..." See moreree. I also left out all the spices for the crust. Another time I made it I used sugar cookies for the crust. That was wonderful! As far as cracks go..LEAVE int he over for a couple hours after you turn the oven off. I never get cracks and I always follow that rule. Also, I had the oven on 340 and only cooked it with the oven on for 30 min. Left it in the oven for another 2 hours. It will continue to cook in the heat just don't open the door! Great recipie!"
