Basque Cheesecake is all the rage so why not make it into an easy slice recipe

I had to attempt to create a version of a Keto Basque Cheesecake Slice that would be absolutely amazing, and I did!

I have seen so many Basque cheesecakes popping up everywhere and while I am a huge fan of the uncooked varieties, I wanted to do my little spin on on one.  

As you may have noticed I do love the Sukrin Gold products as they impart a delicious caramel flavour into baking as well as making delicious caramel as well.  

The Sukrin Gold in this recipe is a superstar!  

Try not to eat the entire caramel cheesecake filling before you even bake it.  I dare you lol!  It is so tasty!

If you have viewed Basque cheesecake recipes you will notice that they do have a LOT of sugar!  Even with the Sukrin gold being less sweet than standard sugar I only used a very small amount for this recipe comparatively.

Taste the mixture and add more if you want to make your sweeter, but maybe just try it the standard way first, then do variations.

Basque Cheesecake Variations

We all love to change things up a little and I am sure you all will have a play with this recipe.  

I know a chocolate glaze or ganache would pair perfectly or even a salted caramel sauce drizzled over top.  

Mix a little Sukrin Gold into some cream and whip until thick and top your slice with that.  

You could omit the Sukrin and use standard sweetener for a traditional Basque cheesecake or even add some chocolate or coffee for a tiramisu version.  

I am sure I will be seeing a few versions after I release this recipe.

Keto Basque Cheesecake Dietary Variations

For those of you who need to swap out the nuts for lunchboxes or intolerances then please swap for any seed meal like sunflower or pepita meal, and for dairy-free or vegan you can use coconut oil, coconut butter, or Nuttelex for the base.  For the topping swap the cream cheese for cashew cheese or dairy free cream cheese, the cream for thick coconut cream, and eggs for aquafaba.

  1. Sukrin gold can be substituted for other sweeteners, however this is what gives it the caramel flavour.
  2. In its place you could add a drop or two of Caramel Stevia, or caramel extract.
  3. This slice can be frozen after baking.

    This looks so good but what kind of tin do you bake it in? I’m in the US so a 9×9 or tart pan? Thanks

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      Hi Elizabeth, use a 11inch x 7 inch brownie pan. If the pan is slightly smaller or larger it will still work just watch the baking time.

  2. Fei

    May I check how much cream to use for the topping?
    Which cheesecake out of all your recipe here should I try?

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      Hi Fei, there is no cream on the top but if you wish to serve it that way it is up to you how much you want.

    I made this today using the Thermomix method and waited for as long as I could before trying some for dessert lol. It was still a bit warm but delish!

    PS The conventional method is still missing the step to increase the temp to 195℃.

    This was super easy and delicious! Didn’t have Sukrin so used vitafiber (and added a bit extra cause I have a sweet tooth) and lemon essence and it was so good the backpackers living with me didn’t realise it was low Carb! Mum and dad loved it too. None left though…….

    Hi Megan. I love this recipe and make it often. The first time I made it the top went black as it should. the subsequent times, it didn’t. In my search for why this might be, I noticed that in the thermomix instructions, you turn the oven up high for the cheesecake cooking, but not in the conventional method. So I think that the first time I made it, I turned the oven up and the subsequent times I didn’t because I was following the conventional method.
    Thanks for all your hard work in making keto fun, scrumptios and creative. Love your site.

    1. Megan

      Thanks Michele I will fix the recipe to have the same instructions on both. Cheers

    THe top of mine didn’t go black. I was following the conventional method but I’ve just noticed that the thermo method says to turn the oven up to 190 but the conventional one doesn’t. IF I had turned up the oven I suppose the top would blacken and not be just a pale brown. A Mistake? Beautiful slice though.

  7. Krista Rogers

    Just wondering if you can use maple syrup instead of Sukrin? Thanks Krista

    1. Megan

      You can as long as you know that maple syrup will add more calories and carbs to the slice.

    I baked a triple batch of this amazing slice for our morning tea fundraiser last week and keto and non keto guests all loved it. Not a slice was left on the big table of cupcakes, yet there were high sugar cupcakes leftover.

    I would love to try this tomorrow, but what have used as the chocolate topping.??

    1. Megan

      That isn’t a chocolate topping Jan. It is the “Basque”. the burnt topping

    I am trying this recipe this week 😍

    This was the first thing I had made of yours and it is so yum it should come with the warning “dangerously addictive”.
    I made it dairy free and you can’t even tell.
    I also loved how easy it was to make, thank you for this recipe

    1. Megan

      I am so happy you loved this Debra. Thanks so much for the review

  15. Karen

    Made this last night. Oh wow. Didn’t have Sukrin Gold, so used natvia, 25g in the base and 100g in the topping as I was worried it would be too sweet and have an aftertaste. Worked a treat. Also used 2 drops of liquid caramel stevia as recommended. Hubby asked for a second piece just to make sure he liked it. ☺️ it was yummy warm too…… this recipe is a keeper. thanks Megan!

    For a vegan version how much aquafaba would I use?

    1. Megan

      Hi Sharon, use 4-5 tbsp of aquafaba to replace the eggs

  17. Lesley

    Hi this looks Devine. What can I substitute for xanthum gum please

    1. Megan

      You can use guar gum, or just leave it out
