Molly Makes Cheesecake | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 18 April 2019
  • Join Molly Baz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she makes a burnished basque cheesecake. This cheesecake is the alter ego to the classic New York–style cheesecake with a press-in cookie crust. Inspired by a Basque version, this is the cheesecake that wants to get burnt, cracked, and cooked at high heat. Which also means this is the cheesecake that’s impossible to mess up.

    If you’re looking for an extra light ‘n fluff burnt cheesecake with a real good jiggle, then you’re exactly where you need to be. Also, apparently Bon Appetit just caught wind of the mannequin challenge so....there’s that to look forward to.

      Hey Molly, big fan here! You are so skilled! I want to try this cheese cake, but it is just the 2 of us. Can you help downsize this cheese cake to a 6 inch version?

      Hey Molly! Great job! Is there a way to modify the recipe and make this a soufflé? I'd love to see that.

              With all that cream cheese I would've doubled the amount of vanilla extract

                      It's quite similar to the cheesecake I always make.
                      I just cream sugar and butter to a fluffy texture with 6 egg yolks, next goes in 2 pounds of ground to a fine texture white cheese and at the end I add 6 egg whites (whipped to stiff peaks with half a cup of sugar), 2 table spoons of corn starch.
                      You fold everything together with a splash of vanilla. And that's it.
                      When it bakes, the outside crisps up and the inside stays fluffy and creamy.

                          hi there, u are using 6 eggs. Is it ok to reduce it to 4 or 5? 6 is kinda a lot to me. Thanks.

                            molly should just say "today we will burnt a cheesecake" and that's it
                            continue like nothing happened

                            and then when she's done and giving others a try she should just say "guys i just burnt a cheesecake, try it!"

                                            okay so...does the cheesecake HAVE to be cooked in a springform pan? all I have is a deep pyrex dish.

                                                  Just wondering, is that the amount of jiggle a normal cheese cake would have also? Or should the middle jiggle when done?

                                                      This taste like a mix of cheese cake and creme caramel. Pretty amazing ! Hint: it taste best when its cold
