“This “burnt” cheesecake from the Basque Country doesn’t require making a crust, so it's a super easy recipe! It doesn’t need much time to cool and it doesn’t matter if the surface cracks and gets browned. You may have to experiment with the baking time, as each oven is different. If it’s still too soft, leave it in the oven for a little longer. Have fun baking!”
