Springform pans are every baker’s secret weapon.

Unlike other baking pans, the bottom is removable, so you can easily lift out delicate bakes, like cheesecakes, without ruining them.

With that in mind, I’ve got plenty of delectable cheesecake recipes for you to choose from.

But as promised, there’s a few you won’t expect.

For example, did you think you’d see lasagna on a list of springform pan recipes? Hint: you’re about to!

25 Easy Recipes for Your Springform Pan (Sweet and Savory)

1. 6-Inch Cheesecake 

That 6-inch springform pan doesn’t get much love, does it?

So, why not put that much-neglected pan to work with this 6-inch New York-style cheesecake?

I know what you are thinking: six inches is not enough cheesecake. But less is more when it comes to this decadent, velvety smooth delight. 

And the simple vanilla base is the perfect blank canvas for toppings too. So go nuts with fruits, chocolate, and more!

2. French Apple Cake 

When the weather finally shifts to “sweater weather,” it’s time to break out the fall bakes.

And nothing is more fall-worthy than this classic French apple cake

The batter is deliciously lumpy, thanks to chunks of baking apples (Granny Smith is a great choice).

Baked until golden brown, it’s best served warm with a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream.

3. No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake 

No human can resist the siren call of this no-bake Oreo cheesecake.

Creamy, sweet, and loaded with cookies and cream deliciousness, it’s a real crowd-pleaser.

And it’s also super fun to make. I mean, who doesn’t love smashing Oreo cookies with a rolling pin?

Since this is a no-bake, it’s ideal for summer and beginner bakers.

4. Deep Dish Pizza 

Here’s the first recipe that may surprise you.

But if you think about it, the springform pan is perfect for deep-dish pizza because it allows for plenty of dough and even more fillings.

In fact, using a springform pan makes serving up this classic Chicago-style pizza beyond effortless.

The crust bakes perfectly in the oven, and since you can just remove the base, there’s no need to try and lift a hot pie out of the dish.

No more burnt fingers or scratched pans, thank you!

5. Sara Lee Cheesecake 

I have a soft spot for those frozen Sara Lee cheesecakes. They’re super simple and the perfect vehicle for all my favorite cheesecake toppings

But don’t let the short ingredient list trick you into thinking this cheesecake is basic.

With a buttery Graham Cracker crust and lovely vanilla filling, it’s the cheesecake to end all cheesecakes. 

Top it with blueberries, chocolate, caramel, or even peanut butter. You really can’t go wrong.

6. No-Bake Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake 

Calling all peanut butter lovers! This luscious and creamy cheesecake is a thing of nutty beauty.

Oozing with peanut butter, this one is downright magical.

Seriously, it’s enough to make you swoon between the rich peanut butter base, peanut butter cup chunks, and peanut butter drizzle.

7. Tortilla and Black Bean Pie

How fun does this Tex-Mex pie look?

It’s kind of like a lasagna in that you’ll layer the ingredients and bake the dish as a whole.

But this one features tortillas, corn, black beans, and cheese instead of noodles and meat sauce.

Go ahead and add protein if you like. For example, taco meat or shredded chicken, or pork.

Either way, don’t be shy with the cheese and jalapeńos.

8. Banana Cream Cheesecake 

The Cheesecake Factory is known for its extra-long menu and over-the-top incredible cheesecakes.

And this banana cream cheesecake is my all-time fave!

So, skip the lines and make this Cheesecake Factory copycat at home. It’s just as good, but half the price! 

9. Instant Pot Lasagna 

It’s time for that lasagna! And you have to admit, it looks pretty scrummy, huh?

Not only is this dish a breeze to make, but it’s lightning-fast to cook, thanks to the Instant Pot.

Believe it or not, this simple appliance will cut the cooking time in half. And it even cooks the noodles!

So while traditional lasagna takes around 45-60 minutes in the oven, this super simple recipe only takes 25. Perfect for busy bees!

10. Eagle Brand Cheesecake 

With one simple ingredient swap, this Eagle Brand cheesecake is unlike any other.

It’s insanely moist and impossibly creamy.

What’s the secret? Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk. 

You can thank me later.

11. Classic Quiche Lorraine 

This classic quiche Lorraine looks like a fancy savory pie straight off the Great British Bake-off. 

It incorporates rich breakfast faves such as eggs, bacon, onion, and cheese in a quick short-crust pasty dough. 

Be warned: this recipe is so good, Paul Hollywood may knock on your door looking for a handshake. 

12. Cheesecake Factory Pumpkin Cheesecake 

You could spend a beautiful fall day waiting for a slice of pumpkin cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory.

Or you can make your own at home. 

With a buttery crust, and bone-warming autumn ingredients such as pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice, it’s the perfect fall treat!

13. Meyer Lemon Tart 

Step aside, lemon bars. This simple Meyer lemon tart is the ultimate summer dessert.

It’s bright, sweet, tart, and looks way more impressive than your grandma’s lemon bars (sorry, Grandma). 

Meyer lemons are a must for this because they are subtly sweet and pair so well with honey. 

Garnish it with powdered sugar for an elevated look that’s sure to please at your next summer BBQ. 

14. White Chocolate Truffle Cheesecake 

Craving something rich, chocolatey, and insanely indulgent? You can’t beat this white chocolate truffle cheesecake!

White chocolate is much sweeter than milk or dark, and it’s beautifully creamy. That pairs well with cream cheese, sour cream, and vanilla.

This is a must-make, from the sugar cookie crust to the silky smooth filling.

15. Godiva Chocolate Cheesecake 

Okay, okay, this is for the dark chocolate lovers! And yes, it’s just as rich, decadent, and impossibly creamy as it looks.

The crust is chocolatey, and the filling is chocolatey, so every bite packs quite a punch.

The secret to making this cheesecake even more chocolatey is the addition of brewed coffee.

16. Strawberry Cornmeal Cake 

It’s part cobbler, part cheesecake, and 100% delicious. 

The cornmeal cake isn’t your average summer sponge. Featuring cornmeal, mascarpone cheese, and butter, it’s beyond rich and tender.

Before it hits the oven, pile fresh strawberries on top, and finish with a robust balsamic reduction. Wow!

17. Bavarian Apple Torte 

This Bavarian apple torte takes everything you love about fall and combines it into one tasty dessert. 

Everything, down to the raspberry jam crust, is brimming with bright flavors.

It incorporates a creamy vanilla filling, fresh apples, cinnamon, and crunchy almonds. 

For an extra pop, dust your delicious creation with plenty of powdered sugar!

18. Classic Sour Cream Coffee Cake 

Coffee cake remains one of my all-time favorite treats because no one bats an eye when you have this dessert for breakfast!

Using a springform pan allows you to layer the sour cream cake batter and streusel, then take out the finished cake without breaking it in half.

Finished with a sugary vanilla glaze, you’ll want a second piece. 

19. Frozen Grasshopper Pie with an Oreo Crust 

Looking for a fabulous no-bake dessert for your next party? How about this fun grasshopper pie?

From the crème de menthe to the Oreo crust, it’s a mint-chocolate dream.

20. Easy Ice Cream Pie 

This gluten-free ice cream pie will be a big hit this summer. Plus, it’s a great way to get the most out of your springform pan!

Because, let’s be honest, these things are a nightmare to get out of regular pans.

Better yet, this one calls for store-bought ice cream. So all you need to do is let it warm a little, then spread it on a cookie crust.

Layer in some fudge or caramel, and dig in!

Fudgie the Whale, who? 

21. Lemon Cheesecake 

Forget the vanilla and chocolate recipes you usually make. This lemon cheesecake is the only recipe you need this summer.

It incorporates bright lemony flavors into a creamy cheesecake base with a simple Graham Cracker crust. 

Topped with bright and zippy lemon curd, this is one you’ll crave again and again.

22. Banana Split Ice Cream Cake 

I love banana splits! They’re so fun, colorful, and tasty, I could eat the whole thing myself!

Of course, this one is a little different.

It incorporates pre-made components like ice cream sandwiches and store-bought strawberry ice cream.

So, all you need to do is assemble and let the compliments roll in. It’s a genius way to feed a crowd!

23. Angel Food Cake 

Whenever I want to eat healthily but refuse to give up dessert, it’s angel food cake to the rescue!

While it’s not exactly a summer salad, it’s health food-adjacent – and certainly better than a big old piece of brownie! 

This super simple cake is the perfect pairing for ripe strawberries and a dollop of whipped cream. Though you can add any fun toppings you like.

24. Ricotta Stuffed Rigatoni Pie

Full disclosure: this rigatoni pie take a bit longer to make than your average pasta dish.

But you can’t deny it looks impressive!

Between the tender pasta, herby ricotta filling, meat sauce, and mozzarella cheese, it’s American-Italian food at its best!

25. Layered Roasted Vegetable Torte 

This layered vegetable torte is a dinnertime masterpiece. And it’s a terrific way to impress while keeping things veggie-friendly.

It incorporates perfectly layered savory vegetables in a flaky crust bound together with cheese.

Including butternut squash, cauliflower, broccoli, and collard greens, no one will go to bed hungry!
