Thank you Pookie and YoJulez, I will make sure to incorporate these tips. I had been taking it out as soon as the timer said it was done and I beat the heck out of the mix before baking emoticon

I haven't tried to make a real cheesecake...yet. It's on my to-do list. What I do when I'm going to try something new is go to you tube and watch videos first.

Another tip, to stop cracking and falling, once cooked, turn off the oven and leave it in there to cool as the oven cools down.

What recipe are you using? I've never had a cheesecake fall in on itself and I make some pretty tall ones! Without the recipe, my guess is because you're taking it out before it's done. On recipes for baking, the time given is just a "suggestion" most of the time, as every oven slightly varies on temperature etc. Cheesecake is done when it's very slightly spongy in the middle.

Also if you overbeat the batter mixture it will end up falling. Only mix it enough to incorporate all the ingredients, no longer than that. It basically adds too much air to the cake so when it cools, it "deflates". Also if you open the oven to check on it, that can cause it to fall too.

I don't have a lot of experience making cheesecake and my few attempts have collapsed. My daughter's 18th birthday is next week and she requested cheesecake for her birthday dinner dessert. How do I keep the cheesecake from totally collapsing on itself?
