BASQUE BURNT CHEESECAKE




We made famous basque burnt cheesecake, also known as the San Sebastian Cheesecake from Spain. This cheesecake is a dessert with a smoky flavour and creamy texture that is baked at high temperatures as if burning. After testing several recipes we found the best recipe for the ideal taste.

The process is simple, but you will be able to make a great cheesecake that is something different from usual cheesecake.

I hope you will try it once !
