Burnt Basque Cheesecake Recipe




• 2 pounds (approx. 900 g) cream cheese, room temperature

• 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar

• 5 large eggs, room temperature

• 1 1/2 cups heavy cream


• 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

• 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

• Zest of a lemon (optional)

• Icing sugar for dusting (optional)


1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line the bottom and sides of a 9-inch springform pan with

parchment paper, leaving some overhang for easier removal later.

2. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and granulated sugar until smooth and creamy.3. Add the eggs

one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed to make

sure everything is well mixed.

4. Add cream and vanilla extract and mix until everything is incorporated.5. Gradually add flour to the

dough and stir until smooth. The flour stabilizes the cheesecake and ensures a firmer consistency.

6. Add lemon zest if desired for a hint of citrus flavor.7. Pour the cheesecake batter into the prepared

springform pan. Gently tap the pan on the counter to remove any air bubbles.

8. Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for about 50 to 60 minutes or until the top is a deep

golden brown and the edges are set but the center is still slightly wobbly.9. Remove the cheesecake

from the oven and let it cool completely in the pan on a rack. As it cools, the cheesecake loses some

of its air and forms its characteristic cracked and burnt surface.

10. Once the cheesecake has cooled, carefully remove it from the tin by lifting the edges of the baking

paper.Transfer to a serving plate.

11. Optionally, sprinkle the top of the cheesecake with powdered sugar before serving.

12. Cut your burnt Basque cheesecake and enjoy it at room temperature or cold.The creamy interior

and caramelized exterior create a delicious contrast of flavors and textures.

This cheesecake is best enjoyed within a few days and can be stored in the refrigerator. It is a

wonderful dessert that will impress your family and friends with its rustic charm and delicious taste!
