Read our full instructions here to win! This recipe is courtesy of Syahirah Aqilah Yusof for the “Burnt Cheesecake, Let’s Make It Malaysian-lah!” Contest.

“The Basque Burnt Cheesecake that I made was inspired by our Malaysian traditional dessert, Sago Gula Melaka. As this is one of my husband’s favourite dessert, the more it inspires me to do so. Well, as we all know, Sago Gula Melaka is quite unique on its own. It consists of 3 different components with each and every component has its own role by balancing the sweetness, creaminess and flavors. So, as you can see, instead of having the sago in red (rose) or green (pandan) colour, I have it infused in the cheese batter to make it look more appealing with a balanced flavor. Also, the creaminess of the coconut milk was infused in the cheesecake so that every bite taken, you’ll get a hint of the coconut! As for the Sago, I choose to just have it on top of the cake to preserve the original texture and taste of it when eaten. Lastly, the Gula Melaka…oh well, its always best to be drizzled on top as you can really taste the original flavor! Who doesn’t love the taste of Gula Melaka? Its really common when talking about Malaysian flavors, right? All in all, this recipe balances out the flavors, sweetness, and creaminess in one dessert! It is also one of the BEST Basque Burnt Cheesecake to have in our sunny-weathered country. Don’t forget to try the recipe!” – Syahirah Aqilah Yusof
