San Sebastián Cheesecake, also known as “Basque Burnt Cheesecake,” is a popular dessert hailing from the city of San Sebastián in Spain’s Basque Country. Unlike traditional cheesecakes, this one is baked at a high temperature until the top is caramelized and burnt, giving it a rustic, homemade appearance.
The cheesecake is made with just a few simple ingredients, including cream cheese, heavy cream, sugar, eggs, and a small amount of flour. The mixture is then baked in a round cake pan, and the result is a creamy, smooth cheesecake with a slightly burnt and caramelized exterior.
San Sebastián Cheesecake is often served with a dusting of powdered sugar and fresh berries on top. It’s become a trendy dessert in recent years, with many chefs and restaurants putting their own spin on the classic recipe.
