Triple-layered Burnt Cheesecake
Sharing is caring!

Basque cheesecake has taken the dessert world by storm. Simply because it only requires very few ingredients, it is low-carb, and most importantly it tastes AMAZING! I combined three of our most loved flavours (Matcha, Vanilla and Dark Chocolate) to create this yummilicious triple-layered burnt cheesecake.

Triple-layered Burnt Cheesecake - Three Flavours


  1. Preheat the oven at 240 degrees Celcius. Cut 2 equal-sized parchment papers to line a 6″ pan.
  2. In a large bowl, use a handheld electric mixer to beat the cream cheese till soft. Add in sugar and continue beating with low speed until the sugar dissolves.
  3. Add one egg at a time into the mixture and continue beating. Be sure to only add the next egg when the previous egg is fully incorporated into the mixture.
  4. Scrape down the sides of the bowl occasionally to ensure it is well mixed.
  5. Weigh the mixture and separate it into 3 equal portions.
  6. To make the Matcha layer, heat the heavy cream in the microwave for 1 minute till warm. Sieve in Matcha powder, mix well.
  7. Pour the Matcha powder into a portion of the cream cheese mixture. Beat the mixture on low speed until fully combined. Sieve the mixture into a bowl and set aside.
  8. To make the Vanilla layer, sieve in the cake flour into the heavy cream, add in vanilla extract and mix well. Sieve the mixture into a bowl and set aside.
  9. To make the Chocolate layer, heat the heavy cream in the microwave for 1 minute till warm. Pour the cream into chopped chocolate. Stir to melt the chocolate to yield chocolate sauce. (Heat for an additional 30 seconds if the chocolate isn’t fully melted.)
  10. Pour the chocolate sauce into a portion of the cream cheese mixture, mix well. Add in the flour. Sieve the mixture into a bowl and set aside.
  11. Take the lined pan, sieve the Matcha layer mixture into the pan. Lightly tap the pan on the counter a few times to help release some air bubbles.
  12. Now, ladle the Vanilla mixture on top of the Matcha layer gently to avoid mixing. Once all the Vanilla mixture is in the pan, lightly tap the pan a few times on the tabletop counter.
  13. Finally, ladle in the Chocolate mixture on top gently. Once again, lightly tap the pan on the counter. The mixture should be almost filled to the top rim of the pan.
  14. Put the pan on a large baking sheet before going into the oven for easy removal later on.
  15. Bake at 240 degrees Celcius for 30 to 35 minutes. Let the cake cool on a wire rack till it reaches room temp. Cover the cake and
  16.  pan with a layer of paper towel & plastic wrap. (The paper towel will help to catch the condensation from falling onto the cake.)
  17. Keep it in the fridge for at least 6 hours or overnight for best results.
  18. Decorate with sprinkle on powdered sugar, whipped cream, fresh berries or chocolate. Enjoy this special triple-layered burnt cheesecake!

Triple-layered Burnt Basque Cheesecake


  1. The pan used in this triple-layered burnt cheesecake recipe is 6″ wide and 3″ high. It is better to have a removable bottom for easy cake removal.
  2. Cream cheese, eggs and heavy cream MUST be at room temperature!
  3. Cornflour can be substituted with cake flour or all purpose flour.
  4. The final mixture has to be sieved when pouring into the cake pan to yield a smoother texture.
  5. Semi-sweet chocolate or milk chocolate can be a great option beside dark chocolate.
  6. The triple-layered burnt cheesecake should rise taller than the pan when baked. The center of the cake might still be wobbly. The top layer should look burnt.
