Hojicha (Roasted Green Tea) Basque Burnt Cheesecake | Baking Kit | makes 1x 7" cake


| /

Hojicha is roasted green tea that provides a delightful smokey flavour! Its flavour profile belongs to a nutty, smokey one, and matches perfectly with a creamy, goey, dreamy cheesecake. This makes the cheesecake less sweet and cloying on the tongue. Basque Burnt Cheesecakes are one of those things where it looks incredibly impressive, but is actually quite simple to make!

Every one of our recipes was created to use medium-sized eggs, as that is easily found in the supermarket. To make sure your eggs are the right-sized, get eggs that weigh 55g with shell. To determine that, follow the steps below when buying your next carton:

  • Check the label for the total weight of all the eggs.
  • Take that number and divide it by the total number of eggs in the carton
  • The answer should be ~55g.


Carton of 10 eggs > Total weight = 550g > 550/10 = 55g
