Recipe Of The Month: Burnt Basque Cheesecake

With Ilias Doulamis, Executive Chef, Grand Hyatt Muscat

The latest global obsession in the cheesecake world is none other than the San Sebastian Cheesecake or the Basque Cheesecake. Being both rich and fluffy, it’s baked at a very high temperature, causing the cake to develop a deep brown-baked outlet layer while maintaining a smooth and liquid-ish texture inside. The mahogany burnt top gives it a beautiful rich color but also adds the extra flavor notes that set it apart from other cheesecakes. San Sebastian Cheesecake is so creamy and dreamy that you might not even notice it doesn’t have a bottom crust.

With a smooth custardy center and caramelized top, this ridiculously simple Burnt Basque Cheesecake recipe comes together from a handful of ingredients in a matter of minutes.

We urge you to bake one of these creamy feasts for yourself – you can thank us later!

Firstly, let’s get started with the ingredients and equipment you will need:

  • Cream cheese 500 gr
  • Sugar 170 gr
  • Cream 250 gr
  • Egg 110 gr
