Basque Cheesecake

Matt Sinclair

Ingredients:

Serves 6-8

  • 430g cream cheese, room temperature
  • 120g caster sugar
  • 270ml thickened cream (at least 30% fat)
  • 20g plain flour, sifted
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt (approx. 1/2-1 tsp)

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 220C fan forced/ 240C without fan. Line a 20cm loose-bottom cake tin with baking paper, also lining the sides.
  2. Using a stand mixer with the paddle connection, mix the cream cheese and sugar together on the lowest speed until smooth. Add eggs 1 at a time and incorporating well after each one. Stop the mixer between each addition to scrape down the sides.
  3. Meanwhile, add a small amount of cream together with the flour in a small bowl and whisk to remove any lumps. Add the remaining cream and whisk until smooth.
  4. Add the cream mixture to the mixer and keep the speed on low. Add the lemon juice, vanilla and salt. Mix slowly until well combined, avoiding any aeration.
  5. Pour into prepared cake tin and place in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until it wobbles like set custard (relatively firm but with a wobble in the centre). Be sure to turn the cake around at the halfway mark to ensure even colouring.
  6. Remove and set aside to cool for at least 3 hours before removing it from the cake tin.
