Recipe Description

Follow this simple recipe to make the famous Basque Burnt Cheesecake using an air fryer!

This is a recipe I have found when my oven is ‘acting up’. Since I used to bake chicken using the air fryer, I thought that it might be possible to bake a cheesecake too.

As my air fryer is quite small, it can only fit a 6-inch round pan, which I think is a perfect size for my family of 4.

The result is better than I expected!

Happy baking and hope you find the recipe useful.
