Hi everyone, I am new to this site any this is my first post.
I recently made a cheeze cake, the taste was great, texture was great, but as it was baking it rose 1 1/2" above the rim of the spring form pan, then when it was done baking for an hour, and i took it out of the oven it dropped to the rim of the spring form pan. I don't think they should rise that high right?..any idea what i did wrong?....thanks.

Welcome, Andy! I made my first-ever cheesecake in October for my son's birthday request. It came out fine, so I'm not sure what went wrong with yours. Maybe check your oven temperature? I'm sure others on this site will have lots of helpful hints for you. Keep checking back.

Sometimes over mixing can do this,You're incorporating a little too much air into the batter.Cheese cake is still good even if it falls a little or cracks this can all be corrected with a fruit topping and no one will notice.

Gale is correct, over beating can incorporate too much air into the batter and that will cause it to sort of collapse much like a soufflé would.
