Why is my cheesecake still jiggly?
If there is a large, jiggly area, or if liquid breaks the surface or sloshes over the edges of the pan, the cheesecake is not finished cooking. Bake the cheesecake for another 5 minutes or so before checking it again for doneness. Expect sour cream filling to jiggle more than cream cheese filling.
