What is a water bath for cheesecake?

A water bath for cheesecake is a baking technique that involves placing the cheesecake pan inside a larger pan filled with hot water during the baking process. This method helps create a gentle and even heat distribution around the cheesecake, resulting in a creamy and evenly cooked dessert. The water bath helps prevent the cheesecake from overcooking or cracking, as the surrounding water helps regulate the temperature and provides moisture in the oven. It’s particularly useful for delicate custard-based desserts like cheesecakes that require slow and gentle baking.
