Cheesecake filling

To decorate


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Grease a loose bottom tart tin. Mine was 20cm wide and 4cm deep (8 inches wide and 1.5 inches deep).

To make the crust:

  • In a large bowl or food processor, combine all of the base ingredients. Roll out onto a floured surface and transfer to your tart tin. Alternatively, directly press the mixture into your tart tin.
  • Bake in the oven for 7-10 minutes until the sides are only very slightly golden brown.

To make the filling:

  • Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until there are no lumps.
  • Pour cheesecake filling into the crust and bake for 20-25 minutes. Keep an eye on the cheesecake to make sure the crust doesn't burn!
  • Leave the oven door ajar and allow the cheesecake to cool in the oven for at least 1 hour. Remove the cheesecake from the oven and allow it to come to room temperature. Cover the cheesecake and set it aside in the fridge overnight.

To decorate

  • Spread your passionfruit pulp on top of your cheesecake. If desired, use a piping bag with a star nozzle to pipe stars on the tart.
  • Enjoy immediately or keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.


  • Don't omit the lemon, vanilla and salt as these help it taste like a cheesecake.
