Dark caramel outside and creamy rich insides perfectly describe this Spanish Basque Burnt Cheesecake. Intentionally burnt, this baked treat is super simple to make and marked by its contrasting bitter notes and sweet, light interior. It's the easiest version of the classic Spanish dessert you have ever seen!
