The iconic line from Forrest Gump goes, “life is a box of chocolates”, but in our case, it’s a box of Basque Burnt Cheesecakes! Local baker Aby’s Homemade adds a fun spin to these cheesecakes and I’m a fan!
Compared to most heavy and dense cheesecakes, this one was light. Pleasantly creamy, fluffy, and the kind you can finish in one sitting. This is because they offer it in personalized portions and in many options, too!
Creamy, cheesy, a touch sweet, and delightfully fluffy. That’s the overall flavor profile of Aby’s Baby Basque Burnt Cheesecakes, but with a sweet addition on top.
So, trust me when I say that yes, you can finish one whole cake… or even two or three! And with all the choices available, you’ll never get bored.

My Favorite Flavors
If you ask me about my favorites, it’s hard to choose. But my top picks include the Salted Caramel Almond, which has nutty slices of almonds and a sweet syrup—a real treat. On the other hand, the Cookie Dough was like the marriage between a cookie and cheesecake—sweet and sour, but with a subtle touch of cinnamon and chocolatey goodness.
But the highlight so far? The Wintermelon with its chewy boba pearls on top and that sugary sweet Wintermelon syrup on top to complement the cake’s cheesy flavors. As someone who loves milk tea, I instantly gravitated to this one. It was love at first bite!
