Pineapple & passionfruit cheesecake with a gingernut base



How to Feed a Family of Six for Under $20 began as a Facebook page after mother-of-five Jas McPhee shared a delicious lamb curry recipe that her children “devoured”. This is a collection of Jas’s most popular recipes with tips on shopping smart, cooking creatively while saving money.

 

Pineapple & Passionfruit Cheesecake with a Ginger Nut Base

These flavours complement each other so well and this cheesecake is a hit in my household. If you’re lucky enough to have a passionfruit vine at home, use fresh instead of preserved fruit.

Serves 8–10

Ingredients

250g packet ginger nuts

50g butter, melted

200ml cream

440g can crushed pineapple, strained

230g jar passionfruit pulp

250g tub cream cheese

 

1. Using a food processor, crush biscuits to a fine crumb. Add butter and combine.

2. Grease a 23cm round cake tin. Press mixture into tin and put in fridge or freezer for 30

     minutes to chill.

3. Whip cream and add pineapple and half the passionfruit pulp.

4. Beat cream cheese in a separate bowl until smooth. Add cream mix and fold together until  

   well combined.

5. Pour over base and top with remaining passionfruit pulp.

6. Chill until ready to serve.
