Keto Basque Cheesecake

Before jumping to the recipe please note that the below information contains HOT TIPS for this recipe. We try and answer all your questions to guarantee a perfect keto recipe every time.

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.

    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.

    This was really easy to make and tasted amazing! Will definitely make again!!!

  • Krista Rogers says:

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

  • Anonymous says:

    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.

    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.

    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…….

    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℃.

  • Fei says:

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

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      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.
