Basque Burnt Cheesecake

The in-dessert now! Basque Burnt Cheesecake and it’s so easy to make, you just need to have 2 key ingredients – cream cheese and whipping cream.


Best served after an overnight chill in the fridge, it’s either you like or you dont like the burnt taste. Well, a good dessert for the occasional treat.


I checked a few recipes and most of them use either 200g or 220g  cream cheese so I modified slightly to use up all the 250g cream cheese I have.

250g cream cheese
3 eggs
20g Cake Flour
95g caster sugar
140g whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla bean paste

  1. Remember to bring out the cream cheese to soften it.
  2. Using a handheld mixer, soften the cream cheese with caster sugar.
  3. Add the beaten egg and mix well after each addition.
  4. Add in whipping cream followed by cake flour and vanilla bean paste
  5. Bake at 220 degrees for 30 mins and grill the top for 3-4 mins for the burnt effect.
