Basque Cheesecake is gaining in popularity. Here’s why.
One of the crazes of the year has to be Basque Cheesecake. Not only does it sound too easy to be true, but it also sounds like an actual accident. Basque Cheesecake, in summary, is a burnt, crust-less Cheesecake. Yes, you read that right: you’re supposed to burn it. On purpose.
The cooking process is simple: you bake on high, for over an hour. In doing so, you essentially scorch the top and sides of the cheesecake, creating a burnt finish. In doing this, you do away with the need for a crust because the texture you get from the burnt edges simulates it.
