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 watched the newest episode. I have to say, I laughed out loud watching Abbie simulate electronic contractions on JD and then coo to him, "Your body was made to do this!"

      What was up with HIS face in return? I've only seen the previews - but his look is kind of a mix between "Well - THAT's awkward" and "Oh crap did the cameras catch that??"

      I recently discovered this family and just saw that it is on FJ, so thought I'd join the chat.

      I agree with most of the opinions on here. First of all, the names are just 🤢. Actually most of them would be pretty acceptable if it wasn't for the ridiculous spellings and the weird, random capital letters in the middle of the name - is that even legal? 🤔
      Regarding changing their names after adoption, I guess people have different viewpoints. Personally I think if the child is old enough to know their name, they should at least be able to choose if they want to change it. It is a part of their identity in some way. Also, since they were fostered for some time before the adoption, I'm guessing they were calling them by their original names? It is a little strange to suddenly have a completely different name after adoption. 

      I'm guessing their channel is catered to a younger audience (teen/pre-teen) based on the click-bait titles, cringey, over-top enthusiasm and patronising voices. Its just too much for me 🤢

      Apart from the typical YT family channel  exploitation of minors, there's not really much to snark on 🤔. They obviously have the financial resources to take care of all these children instead of cramming them all in one room and feeding them sub-standard canned junk. The children seem genuinely happy and well cared for. I like that they actually get to go to school and interact with other children their age. The parents also seem to encourage them to develop their interests, which seems to be rare in the fundie world. One of the boys (Luke) is interested in theatre and dance and Delaynee? I think is a more 'tomboy', sporty type. They are both encouraged to participate in activities which are associated with the opposite gender - another rarity in the fundie world. 

      Someone mentioned that they shouldn't be allowed to adopt so many when they already have a lot of biological children. I personally think that there shouldnt be a limit as long as they are able to adequately provide for them. Plus, they adopted a rather large sibling group, which had a very low chance of being adopted. They would have either been separated or stuck in the foster care system permanently. 

      There may be more going on in the background which we don't see, but compared to some of the families discussed on this site, the seem like parents of the year 😅

      Sorry for the essay 😬

      Bridger’s adoption story posted Friday 

      something Russian that begins with K Vladimir Alexandrovich.  His New middle name is Alexander.  He likes having two names.  I like that his patronymic is his middle name now.


      I was a bit confused by Bridger's name. I'm pretty sure that Kuzotzskin is actually a surname, not a given name. His actual name was probably Vladimir (given name), Aleksandrovich (Patronymic name) Kuzotzskin (surname). I'm just confused why it was given in that order 🤔. Maybe he remembers being called by his surname, rather than his given name?It would be a little bit worrying that they don't know what his name was.

      So many of these fundy patriarchs have to be the rulers in their own little bubbles and they set up their family and a few other loyal retainers (i.e., sons in law) as their subjects. 

       It's...almost...as if...it attracts a certain type of personality.

      I wash my hair daily, especially in the summer. In the winter I sometimes wash it every other day, depending on wether or not I have to go somewhere that day.
      I sweat a lot, and I sweat a lot on my scalp. I also excersize daily. After a work-out routine, my hair looks and feels like I have just taken a shower. It's completely drenched in sweat because my scalp gets super sweaty. Therefore, I wash it everyday. In the winter, on days that I don't wash it but do excersize, I still rinse it with water because of the sweat that gets in my hair.

      I have long hair (breast length), so if I would have to blow-dry my hair after every wash, dat would take up more time. On warm spring days, on rainy days, and during the summer, I don't blow dry my hair. I just wear it up and it's dry at the end of the day. (From March onward it's too warm for me to wear my hair down, so I just always wear it up, until the end of November, when it's usually cold enough for me to be able to wear my hair down again). During the winter I do blow dry it when I have to leave the house. If I stay in I just let it air dry.

      Oh man, ear piercing is a controversial issue in my family. 😂

      My mom had hers done as a baby which was normal in her country. 

      My older sister traumatised our mom when she started senior school (age 11 over here). She begged and nagged constantly because all her friends had pierced ears and she wanted them too. But my mom said she had to wait until the school holidays so they could heal. I didn't find out any of this until a few years ago. 

      When it was my turn to move up a school, my aunt came by at the beginning of summer, sat me down and pierced mine with one of those old fashioned guns. It hurt. 

      A couple of years ago, I went with my mom to get hers re-pierced. Only then she told me the story of my sister's ear piercing and how she couldn't go through all the harassing and tantrums again. I thought it was funny that my sister had been that aggressive to cause such pre-emptive panic since she was always the good, well behaved one.

      I never wear earrings and find if I do, my ears react really quickly/badly.

      I think it's fine to pierce a baby's ears, they won't remember it and you could save stress later in life!
