Passion Fruit Cheesecake

Is there anything better than a truly great slice of cheesecake? Creamy smooth vanilla middle, crunchy buttery sugary base, and a sharp tangy tropical puree on top. There’s nothing like it on a nice hot summer day.
I love the contrast that the passion fruit tang brings to the gentle cream cheese filling in this recipe. It tastes so fresh and light.

Instructions
 

CAKE BASE

  • Preheat the oven to 325°F / 160°C.
  • Combine the graham crackers, crumbs, sugar, and melted butter in a medium-sized mixing bowl.
  • Mix well then pour the mix into a greased 9” round spring form cake pan.
  • Press the graham cracker crumb crust into the bottom of the pan, compacting it well.
  • Bake the crust in the preheated oven for 10 minutes then remove from the oven to cool.

CAKE BATTER

  • Place the cream cheese in a large mixing bowl and beat together with the 1 ⅓ cup white sugar until creamy.
  • Add the salt, vanilla extract, eggs, sour cream and heavy cream and mix together well, making sure there are no lumps in the batter.
  • Sift the flour over the top and mix again.
  • Pour the batter into the pan with the baked crust and then wrap the edges of the pan in foil and place the pan in a water bath.
  • Bake for 40 minutes in the preheated oven, adding more water to the water bath as needed.
  • The cheesecake may not look completely done but it will bake more with the passion fruit topping. Let the cheesecake cool.

PASSION FRUIT TOPPING

  • Combine the condensed milk, egg yolks, and passion fruit puree.
  • Pour the passion fruit mix over the cooled cheesecake and then return the cheesecake to the oven to bake for another 20 minutes.
  • The cheesecake should look set and not wet.
  • Let the cheesecake cool completely before slicing and serving!
