Sweet Treats: Chocolate & Passionfruit Cheesecake

20160803_192859_HDR.jpg

I cannot say I am the biggest fan of cheesecakes. There is however a few exceptions that make me ever so tempted to try. I do love lemon&lime cheesecake by Nigella. It is rich, creamy and so lush. Well I am not one of those people that would be worried to use too much double cream.

I have never tried to make no-baked cheesecake until last week. It has been bugging me for a while as my oven seems to be giving me a bit of a hard time these days. And so I decided to experiment. This recipe takes literally 20 minutes to make and tastes delicious. So I hope you enjoy it too 😉

I also decided to lighten up the richness of the chocolate and cream with tangy and fresh passion fruit. It works very well and does not seem to spoil the solid texture of the cheesecake. Feel free to decorate the top with fresh raspberries or strawberries. Their bright red colour would make this dessert even more delightful.

Sweet Treats: Chocolate & Passionfruit Cheesecake (servers 8-10)

Ingredients
150 g digestive biscuits
30 g melted butter
1 tbsp golden sugar
300 ml double cream
100 g soft cream cheese
40 g icing sugar
300 g dark chocolate
2 passion fruits

Line the sides of 9 inch cake tine with baking paper. This helps when you later try to get the cheesecake out of the tin. Crush biscuits until they form a breadcrumb texture. Then mix with golden syrup and butter. Press the biscuits to the cake tin and leave in the fridge to set.

Melt the dark chocolate over bain-marie and set aside to cool. Whip the double cream then add icing sugar and cream cheese. Add cooled chocolate to the mixture and passion fruit. Mix well and then transfer to the cake tin.

Leave the cheesecake to set in the fridge for at least 4 hours before serving.
