Cheesecake lovers, mark your calendars! Saturday, July 30, is National Cheesecake Day, and in honor of the special occasion, The Cheesecake Factory will add a new cheesecake flavor to its robust menu. The new addition pays homage to a dessert that was created in San Sebastian, Spain, more than 30 years ago: the Basque cheesecake.

The chain's take on Basque cheesecake will feature a burnt top and an ultra-creamy, custard-like center. The cheesecake will then be topped with fresh berries and, of course, a dollop of whipped cream.

The Basque Cheesecake announcement isn't the only sweet news the restaurant shared in honor of National Cheesecake Day. The Cheesecake Factory will also donate $1 to Feeding America for every slice of cheesecake they sell on July 30.

“The Cheesecake Factory is honored to commemorate National Cheesecake Day by continuing our longstanding support of Feeding America’s hunger-relief efforts,” said David Overton, Founder and CEO of The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated, in a statement. “We are also pleased to mark this special occasion by introducing our new Classic Basque Cheesecake. It’s a completely different style of cheesecake than my mother’s Original recipe, and we are looking forward to adding it to our menu.”

If you can't make it to The Cheesecake Factory on National Cheesecake Day, don't fret. Starting Sunday, July 31, the restaurant will donate 25 cents to Feeding America for every slice of Classic Basque Cheesecake sold through July 29, 2023. So you'll have plenty of time to support this great cause while enjoying your their new cake. And if you're more into DIY desserts, you can also make your own Basque cheesecake at home.
