Passionfruit Cheesecake

One of my favorite restaurants does a passionfruit cheesecake, which is my favourite dessert ever! I can’t afford to go out and eat any more so I thought I would try and recreate it at home. It was actually really easy and simple to make. You will need a cake tin with a removable bottom.

Ingredients

400g ginger biscuits, crushed into crumbs
120g butter
4 passionfruit, ripe
400ml creme fraiche
300ml double cream
50g icing sugar
250g mascarpone cheese
1tsp vanilla extract

1. Melt the butter in a saucepan and then stir in the biscuit crumbs until well mixed. Pour into your cake tin and flatten the mix out evenly. Put into the freezer for 30 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, beat together the mascarpone, vanilla extract and icing sugar until smooth, and then stir in the creme fraiche. Whip the cream until it starts to become stiff. Stir into the mascarpone mix. Scope the seeds from two of the passionfruit and stir in as well.

3. Pour the mixture on top of the biscuit evenly. Put into the fridge for an hour.

4. Remove from the cake tin and top with the remaining passionfruit seeds.

  1. I adore cheesecake, there’s something so comforting about it. And of course there are so many different flavours to be had with it. I too have never tried it with passion fruit, so this is certainly one to try. #tastytuedsays

  2. Oh my, that looks gorgeous. I love passion fruit and cheesecake, so will definitely be trying this soon.

  3. I’ve tried many Cheesecakes, but never a Passion fruit Cheesecake. It looks delicious but I’m not sure my cookery skills will be able to match the Cheesecake in your picture. I’m sure I can give it a go though 🙂

  4. Oooh dirty! (in a good way :D) I love a rich creamy cheesecake and with passionfruit to cut through the richness…Yum!

I will confess that I’m not a huge dessert person, but I LOVE cheesecake, and if it’s on the menu when we eat out, I will always get it. I also love passionfruit, but have never had passionfruit cheesecake, so I think I need to make this!

  8. Oh, that looks so creamy! I’m having serious tummy-rumblings right now. I love cheesecake so much, especially a tangy, fruity one. Also, I’ve eaten cheesecake with a ginger base before and it was a fab twist on the usual. Great recipe 🙂
