Mini Triple Layer Basque Burnt Cheesecake


3 mini cakes - 4" Springform Pan

☐ 400 g cream cheese, room temp

½ cup granulated cane sugar

tsp sea salt

☐ 2 large eggs, beaten, room temp

☐ 1 cup heavy whipping cream, room temp

☐ 2 tsp vanilla extract

☐ 24 g all purpose flour

☐ 1 tbsp matcha powder, optional

☐ 1 tbsp earl grey powder, optional


- Preheat oven to 400°.

- Butter the mini pans, then line with parchment papers, making sure parchment comes at least 2" above top of pan on all sides.

- Beat cream cheese and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment on medium-low speed, scraping down sides of bowl until very smooth about 2 minutes.

- Increase speed to medium and add eggs one at a time. Scrape down sides of bowl, then reduce mixer speed to medium-low. Add cream, salt, and vanilla extract and beat until combined.

- Sift flour evenly over cream cheese mixture. Beat on low speed until incorporated.

- If you want to experiment with layers like I did (I made 1 original and 2 Matcha + Earl Grey Basque Burnt Cheesecakes), divide the mixture into 3 bowls. Add Matcha powder (or your choice of flavor) into one bowl and whisk until well combined. Add Earl Grey powder into another bowl, mix well.

- Pour batter into prepared pan. One layer at a time for the layer cakes.

- Bake cheesecake until deeply golden brown on top and still very jiggly in the center, 45–55 minutes.

- Let cool slightly. It will fall drastically as it cools, then unmold. Let cool completely. Carefully peel away parchment from sides of cheesecake. Enjoy!
