Does a springform pan leak?
Because springform pans comprise two separate pieces (a flat base and detachable, form-fitting rim), they are notoriously known for leaking. There is no seal between the base and rim, meaning the batter can leak out, and water from a bain-marie can leak in.

Springform pans work best for thicker batters. However, leaks are inevitable. It’s best to use a cake pan for baking cake batter because it will not leak. If you are worried about releasing your cake from the pan, you can grease or line the pan just as you would have done with a springform pan.
What can I use if I don’t have a springform pan?
Any cake pan or pie plate of similar size will do just fine as a substitute for a springform pan. And lining the pan with foil or parchment paper first will make it easy to gently lift the cake out when it’s done. (Leave a good length of foil or paper hanging out of the pan to make it easier to lift.)
What is the difference between springform pan and cake pan?
A springform pan is a type of cake pan that’s made in two parts. But when you take it apart, that’s when the springform pan shines. After the cake, such as a cheesecake, has cooled, you remove the sides so the cake is still sitting on the pan’s base but the sides of the cake are exposed.
Can I line springform pan with parchment paper?
Parchment paper is typically used for lining a springform pan; it does not add or alter flavors or textures, leaving you with the intended result and an easy release from the pan. It also makes for an easy clean-up.
