For Cheesecake:

  • 4 blocks (908 grams) cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups (297 grams) granulated sugar
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup (40 grams) all-purpose flour


For Basque Cheesecake:

  • Place a rack in the middle of your oven and preheat to 400 degrees (F). Prepare a 10-inch springform pan by rubbing with butter or spraying with non-stick spray. Then line the pan with parchment paper, be sure to leave excess on the top. Place the pan on a rimmed baking sheet and set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer beat the room temperature cream cheese and sugar on medium-low speed, scraping down the sides as needed, until the mixture is very smooth, about 2 minutes.
  • Increase the speed to medium and add the eggs one at a time.
  • Add the cream, salt, and vanilla and beat until combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  • Sprinkle the flour evenly over the mixture and beat until just combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and beat again until the mixture is very smooth.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 60-65 minutes. The cheesecake should be deeply browned and very jiggly in the center.
  • Remove the cheesecake from the oven and allow to cool slightly. It will fall drastically. Remove the cheesecake from the pan and allow it to cool completely in the fridge.
  • Peel the parchment paper away and cut into slices to serve.
