pumpkin cheesecake disaster (but delicious)



So I attempted to bake a pumpkin cheesecake (in my new to me fancy oven) for a holiday party. Let's just say it didn't go very well, to say the least.  My new range is electric viking (never used electric before). The oven has settings i have never used such as convection oven, bake, oven, convection bake, and another setting. *side note I didn't buy this range it came with the new house i just purchased. Well lets just say I used the convection bake option and it didn't work out well for me. :my_huh:  I wish I had pictures, but sadly i do not. Inside of the cheesecake was delicious, the crust and top were burnt to a crisp and uneatable. So my mom being the master baker she is took the recipe and made it correctly and it was  delicious. So, i wanted to share it with all of you.



Chocolate pumpkin cheesecake

3 8 oz cream cheese, softened

1 Oz can pumpkin puree

4 large eggs

3/4 c sugar

1/2 c light brown sugar

1/4 c sour cream

2 tsp van extract

2 tbsp all purpose flour

1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp kosher salt


24 Oreo, whole

6 tbsp melted butter


preheat 350* don't use convection bake option lol

beat cream cheese until smooth, add pumpkin puree, eggs, sugars, sour cream, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Beat until combined and no lumps. set aside

Crust crush Oreo until fine crumbs form, add melted butter and coat Oreo crumbs.

spray 9in spring form pan with cooking spray and press Oreo mixture to the bottom of the pan.

pour cheesecake mixture on top of Oreo crust.

Bake for 1 hour.

once baking is done release pan and let cool for 1 hour, then refrigerate for at least 4 hours


Optional but delicious

drizzle chocolate and caramel on top and serve with whipped cream you won't be sorry 


PS my mom said next time she will bake this using a water bath but i don't know to do that.  I'm just a girl who reads recipes tries them and usually burns it. Then gives mom said recipe and she makes them better. But i am determined to learn how to bake. :pb_lol:

I bet this makes a yummy cheesecake! Can you clarify how much pumpkin puree to use? The recipe says: "1 Oz can pumpkin puree"

When using convection, you have to lower the temperature by about 25 degrees and keep an eye on things. I also learned this the hard way!

Thank you for the tip!! I will try that next time. I'm having a really hard time with this range. I have always had a basic run of the mill gas range my entire life. This electric range with all of its bells and whistles, has really got me. I have burnt just about everything i have tried to bake dessert wise. I'm not the best cook, but i have never been this bad.

      I truly try not the judge other parents. I was at a pool with friends the other day and there was a fecal incident. My friend was like, “the parent should know of the child is potty trained and put them in a swim diaper!” I’m a terrible devil’s advocate so I couldn’t bite my tongue. Of course I had to say that the child who pooped may have special needs and we never know. And my friend agreed. 

      Of course we didn’t set foot in that pool even long after it was cleaned! The mental image was seared into our brains 🤣

      Jeremy and Jinger did a new you tube video. They are going back to vlogging. They are in a new house, in LA, and it sounds like they plan to be there awhile. They are remodeling. They talked about moving. It was riveting. 💤

      Blaming the parent is a cop out and empowers the child to act out.

      Absolutely - kids are individuals just like adults.  All you can do is your best but nobody is able to be ON 100% of the time without breaks.  We're not machines.

      It's moving day for the entitlement twins.  Anyone want to guess when their next grift will be?  I am sure it will be less than a day for their next "funding request" to appear.

      My guess is that some of their "boxes*" will have been lost, damaged, stolen, etc and they will be needing the items** in those particular boxes replaced ASAP.

      * boxes... if any boxes even exist. They collect free money then do whatever they want. 

      ** items... the lost boxes will "contain" their most valuable belongings so they can beg for as much money as possible.

      You know, it just occurred to me.. why would Josh even think he deserves another hearing? He is nobody but a minor D-list player.. and a bad one at that. Yeah, I know we're all equal under the law, but... he's not all that..
