Effortless Elegance: The Easiest Basque Burnt Cheesecake Recipe Ever


Alright, let's whip up a reimagined version of the classic Basque Burnt Cheesecake, a dessert as effortlessly cool as a pair of worn-in jeans and as indulgently satisfying as a lazy Sunday brunch. This is a no-judgment zone: we're embracing the charred exterior for its complex flavor and some seriously lush, creamy goodness inside. With no crust to fuss over, it's a chill baking project that'll have your friends crown you the dessert monarch. Let's get to the good part – the recipe!


  • 250g Cream Cheese (the full-fat kind, because life is short)
  • 60g Sugar (the sweet whisperer of desserts)
  • 5g Cake Flour (just a sprinkle, really)
  • 1 Egg Yolk (it's like sunshine, in liquid form)
  • 1 Whole Egg (because what's a yolk without its trusty white?)
  • 150g Whipping Cream (the puff in your cake's sails)

Let's Make Some Magic:

  1. First off, let your cream cheese get cozy at room temperature. It's easier to work with when it's soft.
  2. Preheat your oven to the fiery realm of 220°C (428°F) – we're going for that gorgeous burnt top, remember?
  3. Get yourself a mixing bowl and cream together cream cheese and sugar until they're whispering sweet nothings to each other.
  4. Then, sprinkle in the cake flour like a magic fairy dusting everything with happiness.
  5. Next up, add the egg yolk and the whole egg – these two are the dynamic duo that'll give your cheesecake structure and richness.
  6. Now pour in that whipping cream and stir it all up to get your batter silky smooth.
  7. Find a pan. Any pan. Line it with parchment paper, and don't worry if it looks like a crumpled mess. You want that rustic charm!
  8. Pour the batter into the pan - let's fill that blank canvas with our creamy concoction.
  9. Slide the pan into the oven and bake for about 25 minutes, or until the top is so beautifully burnt it could bring a tear to your eye.
  10. After the drama of the baking, let the cheesecake hang out at room temperature before giving it a chill pill in the fridge.

When it’s chilled and ready, let the knife do the tango as you slice up this dreamy cake. Ta-dah! You've now got a Basque Burnt Cheesecake that'll be gone faster than you can say "more please". Enjoy the bliss in every bite and don't even think about counting the calories.
