You’ve probably been seeing images of Basque burnt cheesecakes on Instagram a lot during the last few years. The popularity of the cake is understandable; its signature burnt top and cracked sides makes it rustic, charming and really photogenic; and that’s not all, cut into the cake and you’ll find the inside irresistibly creamy and light.
Among all the things about the Basque cheesecake, what might surprise you the most would probably be the fact that they are ridiculously easy to make and needs only a handful of ingredients: sugar, eggs, whipping or heavy cream and of course cream cheese.
How good a Basque burnt cheesecake tastes is really dependent on the quality of the cream cheese in it and so, for this recipe we used the premium quality President Professionnel Authentic American Cream Cheese, which we got from one of our partners S&O (Standard & Origin). The cheese has a lovely smooth and creamy texture and is made specifically for baking and cooking.
Once you have the ingredients, your cake is just a few steps away. Just follow our instructions carefully paying special attention to the little tips we’ve left for you here and there and it’s really likely that you’ll end up with a cake you’ll love making time and time again.
