WhiskMeFree’s Basque Cheesecake

Influencer / Bakes and Sweet Treats

6 portions



  • 8” round cake tin 


  • 320g silken tofu 
  • 200g vegan cream cheese 
  • 180g maple sugar 
  • 50g cornflour 
  • 300g vegan double cream 
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup 



  1. Preheat your oven and line your tin with one sheet of greaseproof parchment paper as the crinkles formed when putting it into the tin will give it its traditional look. 
  2. Blend all the ingredients in a blender/food processor until smooth. 
  3. Pour into the tin and gently shake and tap on the counter to remove any air bubbles and flatten the surface. 
  4. Bake at high heat at 200°c for 30 mins or until the top of the cheesecake is browned and slightly firm around the edges and slightly wobbly in the centre. 
  5. Let it set for 30 mins-1 hr at room temperature to firm up. Then slice and enjoy! 

This creamy Basque cheesecake, infused with pure Canadian maple syrup, adds a light caramelised note that balances beautifully with the cheesecake. For more of WhiskMeFree’s recipes, head over to their blog.

More about maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

Maple spread doesn't contain any butter or dairy products

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple spread comes from the sap of the maple tree that’s all.
