On first look, the overly dark and cracked top crust of a basque burnt cheesecake may look like a product of a failed baking session. However, for those of you who have had the chance to try a bite of it, you would know that it is a mind-blowingly delicious combination of textures and tastes that comes together from just a handful of ingredients.

The basque burnt cheesecake is a crustless cheesecake baked at a high temperature in order to achieve a burnt exterior and a creamy interior. It was created in 1990 by chef Santiago Rivera of La Viña in San Sebastian, Spain when he was looking to add a dessert menu to his restaurant. The original recipe from La Viña contains just 5 ingredients: Cream cheese, heavy cream, sugar, eggs, and flour. Today, bakers and chefs from all around the world are putting their own innovative spin on the classic basque burnt cheesecake. Here’s a rundown of the 10 Best Basque Burnt Cheesecakes in Singapore for you to satisfy your cravings!
