Why you shouldn’t leave your cheesecake on the counter


While we understand that cheesecake could be your silly, little excuse to turn every occasion into a celebration, leaving it unrefrigerated for even two hours is a big no-no. This is because cheesecake contains ingredients that spoil in a relatively short time, such as cream cheese and eggs. Additionally, the high moisture content of cheesecake can cause bacteria to grow exponentially, according to chew kitchen. If you already have a baked and refrigerated cheesecake, you’ll want to skip the The USDA “Danger Zone” making sure that the dessert does not stay for more than two hours.

To avoid the risk of food poisoning and save yourself the stress of throwing away a perfectly made cheesecake, put it in the fridge as soon as it cools after baking. Be sure to cover the cheesecake before refrigerating, as this helps lock in freshness and flavor. Plus, a covered cheesecake will stay fresh for up to five days in the fridge, per All recipes. And, if you want to make a cheesecake ahead of time, you can put it in the freezer. You will need to freeze the unwrapped cheesecake for about an hour before wrapping it twice in plastic wrap. This will ensure the cheesecake stays fresh for about 4-6 weeks.
