Who would have thought that your kitchen accident years ago would have become one of the most sought-after desserts today? The Basque Burnt Cheesecake is basically your regular New York cheesecake — but chao da-ed.
It has a burnt crisp top which hides a custardy, wobbly cheesecake underneath. It’s supposed to be sensually creamy, cooked till just holding its shape. But, there have been many variations, with some places leaving theirs with a gooey lava centre.
The Basque burnt cheesecake trend has not died down since months ago and we’re loving it. If you’ve never had a taste of it before, here are 11 Basque Burnt Cheesecake delivered to you.
In this day and age, when we think of desserts, visuals of over-the-top milkshakes and soufflé pancakes spring to mind. Yet, we often forget that long before our Insta-worthy confections became the next “it” thing in Singapore, old-school desserts were what we sought comfort in.
It is only right we pay tribute to our classic novelty local desserts: think Ice Kachang, Chendol and Cheng Tng! Not only do they evoke a sense of nostalgia in us, they are still the best treats to counter Singapore’s unrelenting heat.
Here is an ode to 15 Nostalgic Desserts in Singapore — and where to find them — that will leave you with a sweet taste of tradition and take you down memory lane.

If there is one thing we cannot live without, it is, undoubtedly, desserts. You name it, we love it. There is just something about that sweet, indulgent treat that never fails to light up our day. This time around, instead of going for our usual choice of ice cream and waffles, we decided to spoil ourselves with something a little different — an underrated, yet equally sinful treat: brownies.
We paid a visit to one of the most highly-raved brownie shops in Singapore lately: BUNDT by The Backyard Bakers. Nestled in Havelock II, they are a hole-in-the-wall takeaway kiosk near Clarke Quay MRT dishing out sinful pieces of chocolatey happiness, also known as dangerously addictive brownies. They also serve coffee.
Albeit hard to find, the joint was still constantly packed with eager customers waiting to sample BUNDT’s bite-sized goodies.
Jiggly, airy and soft, soufflé pancakes are one of the most legendary hybrids in the history of desserts. It doesn’t matter if you can barely stand after your meal — you’ll always have space for this lightweight indulgence.
Singapore has seen many cafes serving up these cloud-soft pancakes. People just can’t seem to get enough of them. But, just when you thought you’ve seen them all, another cafe strikes again. 19 Tea, a popular chain in South Korea known for its soufflé pancakes and tea has opened at Our Tampines Hub.
Their souffle pancakes are some of the most wallet-friendly ones we’ve seen — any one of them will set you back at less than $5!
With numerous gelato joints opening up in Singapore in recent years, it’s safe to say that our country is going through a serious gelato fad. But, nobody’s complaining. In this hot and humid climate, we need a lot more than just chendol and teh bing to deal with the heat.
So, when we heard about a new gelato joint that specialises in botanical flavours, we were down for a visit. Named after the gorgeous butterfly, Monarchs & Milkweed Gelato is a new gelato boutique that specialises in botanical flavours. The concept reminds us of Birds of Paradise.
They churn out fresh gelato daily, every concoction promising utmost creaminess and unthinkable richness.
