Recipe Tips & Notes

  • I’ve found the easiest way to get the cheesecake to release from the cake pan is to line it with foil and give it a light spray before pouring the batter inside. I like using a cake pan for this cheesecake (instead of a springform pan) so that it’s the exact same size as the pumpkin cake layers.
  • Be sure to bring the specified ingredients to room temperature. It makes a world of a difference when it comes to baking a soft, moist cake and making creamy, smooth frosting.
  • Try adding mini chocolate chips to the cheesecake layer. So good!!
