DeVonn Makes Matcha Cheesecake | From the Home Kitchen | Bon Appétit

Publisert 10. mai. 2021
Join DeVonn Francis as he makes matcha Basque cheesecake. DeVonn loves this style of cheesecake because it's not as fussy as its New York style counterpart. This recipe is a great place to start for new bakers, but don't worry -- it doesn't skimp on the decadence you crave from a good cheesecake.
Recipe below:

2 lbs. cream cheese, room temperature
1½ cups sugar
6 large eggs
2 cups heavy cream
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
⅓ cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup matcha powder, plus more for serving
Nonstick vegetable oil spray

A 9”-diameter springform pan, electric mixer (recommended)

Preheat oven to 400°
00:00 Introduction
00:32 Prep the pan
01:15 Prep the batter: beat cream cheese and sugar together
02:49 Add the eggs, one at a time
03:11 Add heavy cream, vanilla extract, and salt
03:27 Sift flour into batter
04:22 Sift matcha
04:48 Divide the batter into two bowls and add sifted matcha powder to one
05:56 Pour batters into prepared pan, alternating between colors
06:23 Use a wooden skewer or spatula to create a marbled effect
06:49 Bake the cheesecake at 400° until top is deeply browned but center is still very jiggly, 60-70 minutes
06:56 Cool completely before removing from pan
08:13 Dust top with matcha powder
08:15 Taste!

DeVonn Makes Matcha Cheesecake | From the Home Kitchen | Bon Appétit


  • thats burnt

  • Literally same video as Molly's basque + matcha powder

  • What is this, Drag Queen Story hour bakes a Fruit Cake, or what?

  • I wonna try this

  • Loving his whole vibe! 💯

  • When u see a video and just know they were a diversity hire seriously u chose that shirt to cook in wtf is wrong with u

  • Research.... 😂 Love your quirky wit. I love that you mention the why products are used.

  • Devonn made me do it!, ❤️❤️❤️

  • He stole Molly’s recipe

  • Investing in crypto now should be in every wise individuals list, in some months time you'll be ecstatic with the decision you made today.

  • Church hat vibes :) DeVonn has a great personality, love watching him.

  • He needs a shirt

  • I would love to see a no bake version of this!!!

    • @Abrianna Rodriguez not really a Basque cheesecake then. You could totally just add some matcha powder to a no bake cheesecake recipe, but if you want the same flavor, it needs to be baked.

    • With Graham cracker crust

  • I wanna see him fry bacon in that outfit lol

  • i think the word would be "marbelization"

  • you put matcha powder in a cheesecake congratulations.

  • He has awesome personality

  • this is like therapy...their voice is so soothing

  • I could listen to this guy read the phone book for hours.

  • Jesus they are beautiful!!! Oh yeah, the cheesecake looks alright, too. Do they have their own NOwine channel???

  • Ok LOVE DeVonn, more please.

  • 5:55 "gorgina" i'm stealing that!

  • 100k views vs the consistent millions of views before, BA is dead

    • What did you think would happen after how they treated Sohla and the others?

  • Honestly.....who wants to see some woke dude in a vest making cheesecake. Cant even line the cake pan properly. Even my 7 year old can do that. Cant watch this channel anymore. Bring back Claire!

    • That’s how you line the pan for a basque cheesecake. It effectively creates a sling so it’s easier to take out. No reason to criticize for being “woke” either. I also quite enjoy the videos with him I might add.

  • I feel torn watching this channel.

    • I feel the same way dude

  • First off, do not line the pan with parchment, you don't need to! Just line the bottom only and spray with cooking spray. Always bake in a water bath, this prevents direct heat to your cheesecake and browning will not occur. Lastly, bake low and slow, to prevent cracking and have a nice smooth consistently. I bake mine at 275°f. Not trying to rude, just trying to help! 🙂

    • This is like a burnt basque cheesecake. It’s suppose to brown and crack. Molly Baz basically did the same cheesecake a few years back

  • I made it, it’s good

  • is the creamcheese really 2lbs?? that's almost a kilo😱

  • Ridiculous 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻 BA is a joke

  • This video would have been much more appealing if he had worn less formal attire.

  • Everything about this video is on point. DeVonn is magical. His culinary creations are always enticing, as is he. I'm so with it. Y'all haters can kick rocks though. I don't know whether to be amused or annoyed by the whining. "Good heavens, he's got a tank top on in his own kitchen! The scandal!" "I miss the old BA, I'm not happy with this diversity schtick" *solitary tear* 😢 🤣 I mean y'all need to go where ever the old BA peeps went. Please, with haste! Talking bout this is the result of overly sensitive people being up in arms, while you angry type your little hurt heart out boo-hooing all up in the comments. Y'all are a mess. 😂

  • This is what happens when politics gets involved in any show

    • Racism should have nothing to do with political sides or ideals. It is a problem that must be approached by everyone.

  • Yummy and healthy. I’m gonna make that sugarfree

  • More DeVonn, less Chris Morrocco

  • looks so good

  • You make it with Slavic white cheese and you will know what paradise tastes like.

  • 🤤🤤😍😀👍👍👍

  • I feel like this style is just so hot. Even though he’s not straight, I am feeling the attractiveness😳🥵 And he’s baking, I am a pastry chef fan, especially follow French. So this is basic American style recipe wise. But darn...the feels. Jiggly Caliente, indeed😂~ P.S. Finally, was getting tired of the straying into too much white washing in the videos. Three Chris videos in a row. Was weird. P.P.S. Oh~ Basque style, never mind. The feels are happier.

  • What’s up with the amount of dislikes???

  • 6:57 omg I got that reference!!

  • I love DeVonn

  • Yummy! Who wants to taste it now?

  • wanttttt

  • Where can I get this shirt?

  • How the mighty have fallen BA

  • Please, one vegan! 😀

  • Now if all the WOMEN wore blouses like this..i wont complain..lets have equal rights for the girls to expose all they stuff like this..

  • 6:24 omg there's a facee 😉

  • I don't have a problem with BA or DeVonn, but please, office casual dress code, I'm not in it for the man cleavage, regardless of how majestic it may be. Nice cake btw.

  • I remember when bon appetit wasn't political.....

  • At first i thought he was Kalen omg!!!! 😂😭

  • okay DeVonn’s videos are quickly becoming a favourite of mine, BA treat devonn right or we’ll come for you xo

  • may i call you Jiggly?!

  • twooo of my favorite things

  • when he said gorgina and jiggly caliente, we know we have team drag race

  • Every ingredient that's not vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy free, and soy free, makes me keep on watching!

  • Not only am I going to make this cheesecake for my bday at the end of the month, I’m going to find a tank exactly like this and wear while I make it with the hope that I absorb some of your superpowers DeVonn. 🤞🏽 💥 🤞🏽

  • "It's just like a little...ooooo!" I agree! I drink matcha every day and think this looks and sounds like it would be great!

  • Sorry. Just no.

  • Yo where did the bon appetit employees go who are experienced entertainers and make food fun? I love the inclusion, great job on being inclusive.... but the content is like stale air, this is a ghost of what bon Appetit was a year ago

  • That neckline is very distracting

  • why does this have so many dislikes???

    • Because he sucks. We want the good people back.

  • But like could we also get a link to the outfit, and a skincare routine...🤣🙏👏💕

  • I don’t like baking but I like this guy he’s nice

  • Haha “issey miyake pleat moment”

  • Out of all the new BA members DeVonn is my favorite. I feel like he has that first BA line-up magic.✨

  • BA is so over. DeVonn should escape before it is too late, but wherever he goes, he'll probably need to dress more professionally.

  • please more DeVonn i'm in love

  • Came for the cheesecake stayed for jiggly caliente

  • DeVonn why you have to be so beautiful GORL??

  • ......sooo the exact same as molly's cheesecake video??? and the point is?

  • pleated!!

  • oooh my it looks so good

  • Devon is ...beautiful, wow!

  • why he wearin his sister's shirt tho

    • Because his sister didn't look half as good in it 👍

  • 5:46 my exact expression when I see that DeVonn is in the title of a BA vid

  • Looks like BA are trolling us haha

  • It's the chocolate skin for me.

  • Kicking myself for not pursuing him when we matched on Tinder 😭 Thats a beautiful man right there

  • Dear BA Kitchen, all you had to do was to pay your content contributors equally when you were doing great. Hiring every shade of LGBTQ won’t fix your PR issues. Textbook case of how to fix a scandal.

    • it's embarrassing honestly

  • This guys just forcing it, put a proper shirt on. You're in a kitchen mate

  • I am in love with DeVonn

  • DeVonn, you are a real light. Thanks for making this.

  • Wow. BA used to be so good. Now it’s just woke trash cooks with weird food real people don’t want to make or eat.

  • Why is there so many downvotes on this vid.? All the comment are so positive that something is wrong here..

  • I like my matcha "Straight" it's healthier for the "Soul"

  • He looks like 2Pac and Wesley Snipes had a kid.

  • "an issey miyake pleats moment" bye

  • I really want to be his friend

  • What's next, cook in a thong? Awful!

  • Put a shirt on dude, you’re in the kitchen, not the gym.

  • Please don't put on your attire to suit your desrire... Cover up your armpits... We are afraid your typical smelly sweat n armpits hair may dripped n dropped into d batter or dough or muxer... We saw your raise Yr hands..

  • Please cover up your armpits especially in food demo. We are afraid your typical smelly sweat n armpits hair may dripped n dropped into d batter or dough

  • yommmmm

  • You appeared to be in the gymn as your attire is not suitable in food demo. We are afraid your smelly sweat and arm pits hair may dripped n folded into d batter or dough.. Please observe proper attire..

  • You should put on proper attire especially during preparation of food. We are afraid your armpit hairs may dropped n folded on the batter.. Please observe simple proper attire..

    • "we" are not afraid of anything of the sort. Dude, you're weird.

  • I like how people are comparing him to Brad stating DeVonn is not hygienic but ... Brad talks so much and is so expressive that I’m certain there’s lots of salvia transmitting going on ...let’s think about this. Plus I never save his armpits can anywhere near the food. There might be something else going on here ...👀

  • TRUMP 2024!!!!! HE WILL BE BACK!!!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  • Thoroughly enjoyed this. Well done, DeVonn!

  • I saw the thumbnail and I just had to comment: he's so cool. He has such a nice vibe
