    • 3 ripe passion fruit, halved
    • 284g pot double cream
    • 1 tbsp icing sugar

    Method

    1. Heat oven to 160C/fan 140C/gas 2. Put the biscuits into a plastic bag, seal tightly and bash with a rolling pin until you have fine crumbs. Tip into a bowl and mix in the melted butter. Spoon the crumbs into the base of a 23cm springform tin and press down with the back of a spoon. Bake for 10-15 mins until lightly browned, then cool.

    2. Put all of the filling ingredients in a large bowl and beat until smooth. Pour onto the cooled biscuit base and return to the oven for 50 mins to 1 hr until the filling is just set and starting to brown. Leave the cheesecake to cool in the oven with the door slightly open, then chill in the fridge. If the top has cracked it doesn’t matter. Can be made up to 2 days ahead. Carefully remove from tin and transfer onto a serving plate.

    3. Slice the pineapple quarters lengthways as thinly as you can. Whip the cream and icing sugar until thickened, but not stiff. Spread over the top of the cheesecake, then pile the pineapple on top. Scoop the pulp and seeds of the passion fruit over the top.

    I have made this several times - extremely easy to make - be sure to cut the pineapple fine as it can be difficult to slice when finished. Friends and family adore it the pineapple and passion fruit are a fantastic comibination.

    Made this numerous times and everytime guests have asked for the recipe. They have taken portions home and eaten it for breakfast the next day. I have made variations using seasonal fruit. Strawberries with a raspberry coulis tasted fabulous!!!
