Passion Fruit Cheesecake
The Mains of Drum
PREPARATION TIME: 10 MINUTES
COOKING TIME: 20 MINUTES
OVERALL COOKING TIME: 30 MINUTES
250g Digestive Biscuits
125g Butter at Room Temperature
600g Soft Cheese
60g Caster Sugar
100ml Double Cream
1 Jar of Scarlett & Mustard Passion Fruit & Lemon Curd
2 Fresh Passion Fruit to Decorate
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 180C/ fan 160C/ gas 4.
Step 2: Blend the digestive biscuits and the butter in a food processor until the mixture looks like wet sand. Then, press the mixture into the bottom of the tin (20cm) and bake for 10-12 minutes.
Step 3: Allow the base of the cheesecake to cool whilst you prepare the filling.
Step 4: Stir in a bowl the soft cheese and the caster sugar. Continue by adding the double cream.
Step 5: Spoon a few (or as many as you like- the more the better, we think!) spoonfuls of Passion Fruit & Lemon Curd and mix until fully combined (or leave ribbons of Passion Fruit & Lemon curd trailing through the cheesecake, the choice is yours!).
Step 6: Pour the mixture in the tin and smooth with a spoon or a spatula.
Step 7: Leave to set in the fridge for 1 hour or even better, overnight.
Step 8: Decorate with the fresh passion fruit to serve.
