How to Make this Easy Gluten-Free Basque Cheesecake

The easiest cheesecake you will ever bake, impossible to mess up, with a rustic, lightly caramelized top, cracked middle, and the same dense and velvety consistency as the classic cheesecake. 

It's gluten-free and fuss-free!

 Here is the perfect recipe for those who love cheesecake's lusciously creamy and dense consistency and delicate caramelized flavor but are a bit intimidated by the cheesecake-making process. 

Trust me, there's no way you can mess up this dessert. 
A Basque burnt cheesecake just needs mixing without worrying about beating too much and ending up with a cracked top. It's baked without a water bath and at a higher-than-usual temperature, which means it takes less time to bake, and you end up with a golden caramelized top full of flavor.  
This cheesecake isn't meant to be perfect but rather burnt and cracked. AND with the most luscious, creamy texture and rich caramelized flavor.
