12 recipes that use a springform pan, including cheesecake, quiche, ice-cream cake, and a whole lot more

It’s likely that if you do own a springform pan, you use it for cheesecake, like the No-Bake Key Lime Cheesecake pictured here, and that’s about it. There’s no need to limit this bakeware piece to such a narrow function, though, and you might be surprised to learn that it’s actually very versatile and can be used for recipes both sweet and savoury. The design aspect that makes a springform pan so useful in cheesecake-making—those removable sides that hold the ingredients in as they bake and then lift right off when the cake is finished—comes in handy for other recipes that call for a springform pan. (And if you’re still not quite sure what a springform pan is, we’ve got you covered.)

We love this lever presentation for a classic party appetiser, where you stand mini dough-wrapped hot dogs up in the pan, and bake until puffed and set. Then, guests just pull off one at a time–don’t forget the spicy sriracha mayonnaise for dipping.

Thanks to the springform, you’ll have no trouble keeping the three layers of this cake in place. It starts with a rich chocolate cake base, then blackberry ice cream middle, and finally raspberry sorbet finishes it off beautifully.

Some pies can be messy, but not pecan pie, especially if you bake it in a springform pan. Make sure the dough comes up 1 1/2 inches from the bottom of the pan to ensure everything stays nice and neat.

One more cheesecake recipe rounds out this collection, and it’s a showstopper. The cake stars a firm, delicately flavoured pumpkin filling and a deliciously intense chocolate crust, which you can serve as is, or pour a stove-top chocolate-caramel glaze on top for a glossy, glamorous finish.
