Basque Burnt Cheesecake, inspired by La Vina from San Sebastian, Spain is one of the best cheesecakes ever, not only because of its amazing flavor but especially by the simplicity and rustic way of preparing. There is no way you can go wrong with this recipe. No fancy steps.. even the parchment paper is lined in a very rough way… no need to worry about the oven temperature, water bath baking or about leaving it to cool slightly in the oven … doesn't even matter if it cracks … or even burn. Actually it is supposed to let it burn a little… that’s the beauty of this cheesecake, the way it creates a caramelized burnt top. What can I say more... I love it… totally love it… my family loved it too. Very light, airy with a creamy texture, a hint of vanilla… we definitely fell in love with it. Hope you will try it out and see for yourself, I am quite sure you will feel the same. Enjoy!
