Pour into crust and bake on the lowest rack of the oven for 50 - 60 minutes until almost firm in the center.


Remove from oven and let cool for 15 minutes, then run a knife along the inside edge of the pan to release the cake from the sides (This will allow the side of the cake to pull away from the pan without cracking.
