Passion fruit Cheesecake Slices

I made these Passion Fruit Cheesecake Slices twice in less than a week, they were that good.

Making these Passion Fruit Cheesecake Slices, was just the most natural thing to “if life or your neighbors give you masses of passion fruits”. Passion fruit, also known as granadilla are most probably the easiest fruit to grow and the yield on just one plant is huge. My children love eating them straight from the shell, but I can think of so many delicious recipes to try with passion fruits. Think Passion fruit curd, Passion fruit cake or a delicious Smoked Chicken Salad.

These Passion Fruit Cheesecake Slices are nothing but baked cheesecake, topped with a passion fruit compote. If you cool the cheesecake completely, the recipes actually cuts into 24 generous slices. I packed the slices on a beautiful platter with passion fruit halves in between and people loved it.

I prefer a baked cheesecake to a set fridge one, but that is just a small preference, because cheesecake in all shapes and sizes are good people! Have you seen this White Chocolate Cheesecake.

To make the crust

Spray and line an 20 x 30 cm oven pan with baking paper (rather be cautious than sorry)Place cookies in food processor and pulse to a fine crumb. Add the butter, mix well and press down in the pan. Place in the fridge of at least 10 minutes.

To make the filling

Pre-heat oven to 180 C. Place all the filling ingredients in a food processor and blitz until the mixture is smooth. Pour into the pan with the biscuit base. Bake for 25 minutes and switch the oven off. Allow to cool in the oven. Then chill in the fridge.

To make the topping

Scoop flesh of passion fruits, jelly powder and water in a small pot and slowly bring to the boil, allowing the jelly to melt. Spoon over the chilled cheesecake or serve separately in a bowl.

    Where can I find passion fruit jelly? Tried all the supermarkets. Can I substitute it with some other flavour jelly?
