What Does "Bake until set" Mean?

Recommended Posts

Instructions often call for baking until set. How well cooked is that?

What are you specifically talking about? Well, it really does mean to bake until its set. As with cheesecake and a creame brulee, you know when its set and no longer a liquid when you tap on the pan and you'll see it jiggle, but it will sort of jiggle in one big piece, rather then the sides jiggling and the very center ripples as a liquid would do. When you see it all moves together, even if it may seen like its moving too much and not cooked enough, when it cools down and is chilled, it will firmly set. Hope that makes sense. :-)
