Burnt Matcha Oreo Cheesecake Recipe

We are almost certain that you have eaten or the very least seen pictures of a very burnt cheesecake before. For those who may not have eaten it, you may be thinking that the cake is way over done and “chao ta” to eat. But for those who have had an opportunity to eat it knows exactly why it is so popular.

Unlike a traditional cheesecake, every bite has a slight bitterness to it, balancing out the sweetness and tang of the cheesecake. The addition of the matcha makes the cake less sweet and more savoury.

We always felt like something was missing in this cheesecake. It is creamy, decadent, moist, but after having one too many bites, it can become jelak. In fact, it like it needed a textual contrast, like how we get a graham cracker crust in a slice of New York cheesecake. Furthermore, to make it more interesting, we have decided add an oreo crust to the recipe. Who doesn’t like oreos?!

With all the time to practice during MCO, many of you are probably already seasoned bakers and chefs by now. As life starts to become busier again, don’t forget the joy and happiness you get from baking and eating a slice of your favourite dessert!

Burnt Cheesecake Fun Facts

Now you may be wondering where the idea of burning your cheesecake comes from. Some would think that The Tokyo Restaurant came up with this recipe given that they do it so well. But it actually originates from one of the world’s food capital, San Sebastian back in the 90s. In fact, with the highest concentration of Michelin restaurants in the world, it is no doubt that creations like this will be birthed. Situated in the Basque region of Northern Spain, the cheesecake is often referred as Basque cheese cake.
