What is a Basque Cheesecake?
The Basque Cheesecake hails from the Basque region of Spain. The dessert originates from La Viña, a cafe in the resort town of San Sebastian. In 1990, Chef Santiago Rivera embarked on an experiment to make a new type of cake every day. Eventually, he developed the Basque cheesecake recipe. unlike a traditional New York style cheesecake, the Basque Cheesecake does not have a crust, instead it is baked in parchment paper. It is baked at a high temperature which creates a dark, caramelized crust which is offset by a rich, creamy interior.
I have been a lover of the Basque Cheesecake ever since I first saw it. It is so beautiful and so simple and wild looking.
This is a very simple recipe to make. In essence just mix, pour, bake, chill. I have prepped and baked it on a lunch break and then let it cool and chill overnight, ready for the next day’s event. Thank you to Foodness Gracious for this recipe. It is perfection, and so easy to modify to be keto or low carb. See the recipe below for all the details. To make this cake keto or low carb, just use a sugar alternative in place of the sugar, and use King Arthur’s Keto Wheat Flour in place of the flour.
