Basque Burnt Cheesecake

This cheesecake will not fail to make you fall in love with. It is very creamy, cheesy and satisfied. It is also very easy to make with basic ingredients and method. Shall we try it?

Illustrated by


  • 335g (1 1/2 cup) room temperature cream cheese

  • 100g (1/2 cup) granulated sugar

  • 30g (1/4 cup) all purpose flour

  • pinch of salt

  • 2 whole eggs

  • 190g (3/4 cup) heavy cream

  • 1tsp vanilla extract

  • 15ml (1 tbsp) lemon juice


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F.

  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the cream cheese with sugar until smooth. Cream cheese should be at room temperature so the mixing is easier.

  3. In another mixing bowl, crack 2 eggs and whisk until you see lots of bubbles and the eggs have increased in volume. I don't mix the eggs directly to cream cheese so it is easier to beat.

  4. Add egg mixture in the cream cheese, whisk until smoothly combined.

  5. Add liquid (heavy cream, lemon juice, vanilla extract), continue to whisk until combined.

  6. Sift flour and a pinch of salt. Whisk until smooth.

  7. Pour the mixture in a 16cm ~ 6 inches round mould lined with parchment paper.

  8. Bake at 400 F in 50-60 minutes until it is burnt on top.

Hope you enjoy it.
