Gooey Basque cheesecake

Rating: 5.0/5
( 1 voted )
Serves: 10 Prep Time: Cooking Time: Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat


  • Cream Cheese 320g
  • Sugar 85g
  • Eggs 110g
  • Heavy Cream 190g
  • Cake Flour (or cornstarch) 10g
  • Vanilla Extract a few drops
  • Vanilla Bean is just a bit


  1. Prepare the pan by placing parchment paper.
  2. Lightly beat the cream cheese.
  3. Add sugar and mix.
  4. Gradually add the eggs.
  5. Pre-mix the heavy cream with cake flour and then mix this with step 4.
  6. Pass it through a sieve then pour it into the pan.
  7. Adjusting the oven is crucial for a good Basque cheesecake. Typically for a 15cm pan, I would bake 18~22mins at 220℃ (pre-heat oven to 220℃).

When you are adjusting your oven, keep the temp at 220℃ as you need high temperatures for a Basque cheesecake to get a burnt top. Simply play around with the time.

All the ingredients need to be at room temp (approx. 20℃)

Once the Basque is out from the oven, leave it to cool completely at room temp and then put it in the fridge. It needs to set in the fridge completely which would take at least 12hrs.

Glaze used:

Absolu Cristal (Valhrona)

How to store:

Store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
