I don’t even want to think how long this recipe has waited to be posted… Shame on me…
Two possible ways of reading the name of the recipe.
You know my attitude to baking… Thus, Passion in the title :)
And more literal meaning – Passion Fruit as one of the basic ingredients of this cheesecake.
And here we have it :)
Passion Fruit is one of my favourite fruit. You had a chance to read a bit more about it while I was posting other recipes.
Currently, I’m trying to be patient to see it again on the shop shelves… It’s been so long. Too long, for sure :)I managed to squirrel some passion fruit curd away, though. I thought it was high time to make a use of it :)
I remember some time ago I made a cheesecake with lemon curd on top. I also remember people’s reactions to it – everyone was saying it was so tasty! (By the way, it turned out I still hadn’t posted it on Sarenka… Jesus, what’s going on with me?!)
Cheesecake with Passion has a really subtle taste. It’s not too sweet, thanks to quite sour top.
One of the most exotic baking on Sarenka :)
