This cheesecake recipe is to die for

1. To start making this passion fruit cheesecake recipe, use an 8-inch spring form pan, get the base out and invert it, lining the base with baking paper. Let the sides overhang and secure the base to the pan again.

2. Using a food processor, process the biscuits until it is finely crushed. Add the butter and process the mixture together again until everything is combined. Put the crust mixture into the spring form pan, using the back of your spoon to spread it around and press it. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and put it in your refrigerator, letting it chill for half an hour.

3. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. After that, beat the creme cheese, lemon rind, and the caster sugar with an electric mixer until everything is smooth. Add the flour and lemon juice, then the eggs one at a time. Make sure it beats well after adding one egg after another. Lastly, insert the heavy cream until everything is well incorporated.

4. Pour the cream cheese into the 8-inch spring form pan, on top of the crust. Place the pan on a baking tray and let it bake for about an hour and ten minutes, or once your cheesecake is set in the center.

5. Turn off the oven and open the door just a bit, letting the cheesecake stay in the oven for two hours until it’s completely cooled. Place the cheesecake in the fridge overnight to let it set, doing the passion fruit topping next.

6. To make the passion fruit topping, mix both the cornstarch and water in a bowl and put it in a saucepan. Add the extra caster sugar and passion fruit pulp, letting it cook over medium heat. Stir for about three minutes or when the mixture starts to boil and thicken.

7. Turn off the heat and let the passion fruit cool for about half an hour. Pour it over the cheesecake and put it back in the fridge for about two hours or until it ultimately sets. Serve and enjoy!

Pro-Tips for your first passion fruit cheesecake recipe:

For those who are beginners or expert bakers looking for better ways to improve this passion fruit cheesecake recipe and make sure they get the best results, here are some pro-tips to follow.

– Make sure that you use your ingredients immediately once you have laid them out. Don’t let ingredients like cream cheese sit out, as they spoil quickly and will ruin the flavor of the texture of your cake.

– To properly store the cake, place it in an airtight container (preferably per slice to save on room) and put it in the fridge. It will last for about three to five days.

– Don’t worry about a wobbly cheesecake after you get it out from the oven. Once it cools down, it will firm up and have the consistency and texture you want.

– To lessen the lemony or tart taste, you can substitute the lemon rind for a teaspoon of vanilla. It still works wonders.
