All you need to make mini burnt cheesecake is an air fryer. An air fryer is actually a mini convection oven with a powerful fan, it is hotter than a normal oven. It is great to be used as an oven to make air fryer cheesecakes.

To get the “burnt” effect, a normal oven will need 230°C-240°C (445°F-465°F), an air fryer will achieve this at 200°C/390°F. Since the volume of the air fryer is small, it is more suitable for making Mini Burnt Cheesecakes. Use 6-inch or 7-inch round mold if you want to make it into a large cake, and bake for 30-35 minutes.
