PASSION FRUIT CHEESECAKE

My kids warned me that they would take over my blog now and again (my oldest & youngest are brilliant bakers in their own right) and I guess it has started earlier than I thought, but I suppose its only fair because I can’t take the credit for this bake, it’s all my daughters Amy’s creation

 

Baked Passion Fruit Cheesecake personally i think this is what heaven tastes like. Passion Fruit is just one of those fruits that makes everything taste extra special and in a cheesecake well it’s just as Amy says its just “divine”. I love all kinds of cheesecake baked and no bake in equal measure, but Amy loves baked Cheesecake and that means we get to eat this Passion Fruit Cheesecake at least every two weeks!!!

What’s good about this particular recipe its made from a biscuit or cookie base which means you can use any type of cookie/biscuit you prefer. This one was made with chocolate digestive but I think world work equally as with chocolate cookies or Scottish shortbread biscuits ( which I have used on other cheesecakes) and worked brilliantly.

Of course we have to mention the topping, creamy, velvety a taste of the tropics. When I’m making a cheesecake I always use Philadelphia Cream Cheese, I know you can buy other supermarket own brand versions but they never work as well. This is a very easy recipe to make, but because it takes time to set its best to make the night before you need it and wait till your ready to serve before you pour the Passion Fruit Coulis on top.

If your feeling brave go for a huge dollop of Double Cream!!  but Creme Fraiche is just as delicious

      Hi Linda..Thank you so much for bringing that to my attention.. apologies.. I fixed it.. You bake it in the oven for 1 hour 10mins or until its just set in the middle.. it should still have a little wobble..It takes about 6 hours to fully set so leaving it over night in the fridge always works for me..I tried it the other day with some mango added to the passion fruit .. it was really tropical.. Hope it works for you, all the best Karyn
