to end
A little tip: to see if the cheesecake is done, you should flip it a little, the cream should tremble a little in the middle. Since the oven is left to cool when turned off, cooking does not stop due to inactivity. If the cheesecake does not vibrate when you shake the pan, it means that it is overcooked.
