Basque burnt cheesecake selling in a tub at Sheng Siong & Shell Select for S$9.90

Microwave, DING, eat!

Love it or hate it, the basque burnt cheesecake is the undisputed cake of the pandemic.

At the height of Covid-19, the cake with caramelised top that borders on burnt and a molten lava center became ultra trendy as cravings surged during lockdown.

Google Trends suggests that search queries for “basque burnt cheesecake” reached its peak in mid-June this year.

The cake is quite literally liquid gold for aspiring home bakers and established bakeries alike, encouraging more and more places to sell it to meet the high demand.

Good news – you don’t have to go all the way down to specific bakeries or pre-order to get the delectable dessert anymore.

Now sold in supermarkets

We recently discovered basque burnt cheesecake being sold at various Sheng Siong and Shell Select Petrol Mart outlets islandwide.

The cheesecake comes in a tub and retails at a price of S$9.90. It weighs 300gm.

It can be found in the freezers within the supermarkets, alongside other confections and frozen treats.

The 5-inch cake is made by local ready-to-eat snack brand Goomedo and yes, it is halal-certified.

According to instructions on the tub, the frozen cake should be microwaved at 180°C for 2 minutes to melt the molten lava core.

Here’s how the cake looks unboxed:

This unusual dessert has been trending for a while and many bakeries have jumped on the bandwagon to put this Internet sensation on their menu. ⁣ ⁣ Burnt cheesecakes are a cheese lover’s ultimate dream dessert since they contain primarily cream cheese but with an average price of $8 per slice, this feels slightly overpriced.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Here comes @goomedo.singapore. A local bakery that created their version of Basque Burnt Cheese Cake that is halal, contains no trans fat and is baked at a high temperature to achieve that beautiful burnt exterior with a creamy decadent centre. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Unlike other burnt cheesecakes I’ve eaten, this one from Goomedo isn’t really as burnt at the top. That said, its burnt top layer gives a hint of smokiness flavour which contrasted the rich cheese taste well. I have to say, if you’re not a cheese lover, you might want to skip this cake as it can be too much for you. I do enjoy the creamy cheesy taste that’s not overly sweet and not as zesty compared to the usual cheesecakes.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Now the beauty of this basque cheesecake is that you can keep it frozen and when you want to eat, all you just need to do is pop it into a microwave and “DING”, it is ready to serve within minutes! The moment you cut into the cake, the gooey cheese centre flows out like molten lava.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ This will be available in selected Sheng Siong outlets and Shell Select Petrol Marts at a reasonable price of $9.90 for a 5-inch cake (300G).⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Do give it a try and let me know if you enjoy it as much as I did!⁣⁣ •⁣⁣ •⁣⁣ •⁣⁣ •⁣⁣ •⁣⁣ #supportlocal #sgfood #shoplocal #localbaker #sgfoodies #basquecheesecake #cheesecake #dessert #cakesofinstagram #burntcheesecake #basqueburntcheesecake #foodphotography #dessertporn #sgfoodie #sgfoodporn #sgfoodblogger #instasg #singaporeinsiders #instafood_sg #sgeats #whati8today #burpple #foodsg #sgig #buylocal #foodpornsg #igsg #ricecookerman #stfoodtrending #supportlocalsg
