Basque cheesecake is said to have originated in 1990 in San Sebastian, Spain. Unlike American cheesecake, it bakes at a very high temperature that creates a caramelized exterior while its interior remains scrumptiously soft.
The apple layer on the top of this gorgeous cheesecake makes it a bit difficult to tell when it's cooked through and set. To double-check doneness, insert an instant-read thermometer into the center of the cheesecake. It should register 145°F to 150°F.
