Spanish Burnt Cheesecake

Hello cake lovers😊 All of us more or less know cheese cake . Obviously it is cake made with cheese. But burnt cheese cake is something special. Once I made this cake and when I shared it with a friend, she told me, oh noooo, Rozina did you burn your cheese cake?? I said no and yes.

She said what you mean? This cheese cake is intentionally burnt I said. But still she was looking at me in a way that I am joking with her.

Anyway,the burnt cheesecake originated in the Basque
region in Spain. It is baked at a high heat for about an hour to provide a burnt exterior. This cake has a creamy, sweet and custardy inside with burnt outside. It is a crust less cake.

Making this cake is very very easy, taste delicious and perhaps looks ugly and will crack. i But the point is this burnt cheese cake is just DELICIOUS.

  • Bake for 60-65 minutes, until top of the cake is burnt 😉😉
  • Once it is done, let it cool down in room temperature and then place it in the fridge for 2-3 hours to let it set and then remove it from the pan and slice it. Serve it with a cuppa chai (tea) or coffee. It is perfect now


While I was preparing  the written recipe for my burnt cheesecake, my Persian cat, Malus, was watching me. He could not help himself and wanted to play with my eyeglasses and finally as you see he got tired and looks sleepy.
