There is nothing better than having a delicious bite of cheesecake with a crunchy caramelized topping. This Creme Brulee Cheesecake is the sexiest and most elegant cheesecake you will ever taste.
Can you believe my little brother doesn’t like cheesecake? I mean he has never even tried cheesecake on the strength that “cheese” should not be cake! It is the most annoying thing in the world to hear him talk about his dislike for the cheesecake because if he knew what I knew and what all of you are thinking right now, he would know that there is nothing better than a delicious, silky, and sultry slice of cheesecake.
So I knew I had to make this Creme Brulee Cheesecake again and share it with all of you.
How to make Creme Brulee Cheesecake
I will say, to my knowledge, there are no shortcuts to torching the top of the cake. You will need a culinary torch. They really aren’t that expensive. You can buy this culinary torch, which is fairly inexpensive. The great thing about torching the sugar, aside from the crunchy topping, is the caramelization of the sugar and its flavor. It takes on a whole new meaning. Serving this cheesecake alongside some fresh fruit and maybe a slight topping of whipped cream is the most perfect answer to a perfect meal.
As far as making this cheesecake recipe, it’s quite simple. You will need about 4 bricks of cream cheese, quite a few eggs, a nice amount of vanilla extract, and some graham crackers for the crust. Once you have mixed the ingredients to make the cheesecake, back it in a steam water bath so it doesn’t crack the surface and keep the top nice and light. You can totally make the cheesecake as is and skip the Brulee part if you would like. I highly recommend making the Creme Brulee Cheesecake as is. Trust me, it takes the cheesecake to another level
