Passionfruit Swirl Cheesecake
A delicious creamy, cheesecake that has swirls of tangy, sweet passionfruit and topped with whipped cream. It has a crunchy ginger nut base and the cheesecake is gluten free and doesn't need baking!
  • 1½ cups of crushed gluten free ginger nut biscuits (about 1 packet)
  • 80 grams of melted butter
  • 500 grams of cream cheese - at room temp / softened
  • ¾ cup of caster sugar
  • 3 teaspoons of gelatine - dissolved in ¼ cup of boiling water
  • 1 cup of whipped cream - and some extra to top
  • 200 grams of passionfruit pulp
  1. In a mixer crush the gluten free biscuits and add the melted butter and combine
  2. Then press into the base of a lined and greased tin - (a springform one or with a removable base)
  3. Place in the fridge to chill ( I cheat and place it in the freezer section while I am preparing the top.)
  4. Meanwhile - beat 1¼ cups of cream until it forms stiff peaks
  5. Then beat the cream cheese and sugar using an electric mixer until it is smooth - Then add in the gelatine that has been dissolved in the boiling water.
  6. Then, gently, fold in the whipped cream
  7. Pour half of the mixture into the pan and add in two tablespoons of the passionfruit and swirl through the mixture.
  8. Top with the remaining cream mixture and the add two more tablespoons of passionfruit pulp to the top and swirl through.
  9. Place it in the fridge to set for 4 hours and then slice and served drizzled with the remaining passionfruit pulp and a large dollop of whipped cream ....delicious!!
