Where to Indulge in the Best Basque Burnt Cheesecakes in Singapore

25 March 2021

Basque Burnt Cheesecakes are dubbed as one of the easiest cheesecake to make due to the little ingredients required and that the end-product doesn’t need to be presentable. Instead, the surface should be burnt with a gooey center that beckons you for a second bite. This trendy bake that took Singapore by storm last year during the stay-home period, inspired many home-bakers to create their own unique version.

From home-based businesses to physical stores, here’s where you can indulge in the best Basque Burnt Cheesecakes in Singapore.

1. Cat & the Fiddle

A household name for cheesecakes in Singapore, Cat & the Fiddle’s take on the trendy burnt cheesecake is known as the Charred Eclipse. Instead of using regular cream cheese, these folks elevate the flavour with the use of Martabak cheese (commonly used in Indonesian Martabak sweet snack), which delivers an intense cheesy flavour, without tasting too jelak. For durian lovers, try the Musang Fury, which uses premium Mao Shan Wang durian – rich, creamy and oh so good.

Price: $52.90 for Charred Eclipse and $68.90 for Musang Fury
