Helpful Recipe Tips
Can you use lemon extract? Yes, but I recommend you don't. Lemon extract doesn't produce the best lemon flavor. Lemon emulsion uses lemon oil which gives it a pure lemon flavor. What about lemon juice? Well, in many baked recipes lemon juice does nothing. I tested it out and it didn't produce the correct lemon flavor you know. A lemon flavor is a great option as well because it resembles the classic junk food lemon flavor we all love.
Cracked cheesecake, a common way to prevent cracking is to prevent as many air bubbles as possible. Also a water bath and from experience leaving the cheesecake in the oven while it naturally deflates itself. If it does crack unless you’re taking photos an easy tip is to cover with some sort of topping like fruits, whipped cream or icing.
Sweetener matters, the added liquid sweetener boost sweetness. But, do not remove the granulated or powdered sweetener version. You can use any granular or powdered sweetener you’d like but as mentioned above results will vary with each. Powdered or really fine is always the best!
