Recipe: Tropical Baked Cheesecake

My first go at a baked cheesecake, it's very nice, and a little bit different! Feel free to use a passionfruit coulis or other coulis on top instead if you want- the cheesecake definitely needs a sweet topping.

Tropical Cheesecake (serves 8)

180g digestive biscuits
90g butter
30g sugar
300g full fat cream cheese
200g ricotta
3 eggs
70g sugar
Zest and juice of 1 lime
2 passionfruit, pulp scooped out.
1 tbsp golden syrup, or honey

1)   Preheat the oven to 160C. Crush the digestive biscuits (in a food processor or by hand with a pestle and mortar). Melt the butter, and mix the digestive biscuits and sugar into the butter. Press the mixture firmly and evenly into a loose bottomed 20cm tin.
2)  Mix together the cream cheese, ricotta, egg, sugar and lime until well combined. Pour on top of the biscuit base, and bake in the oven for 1 hour 5 minutes. Remove from the oven, and allow to chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
3)  Remove the cheesecake from the tin carefully. Mix together the passionfruit and golden syrup, and pour on top of the cheesecake. Serve!
