Ingredients

Cheesecake:

  • 1 packet White Wings Baked Cheesecake Tart Mix
  • 70g unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 125ml thickened cream
  • 190ml milk

Topping:

  • 300ml thickened cream
  • 200ml crème fraîche or sour cream
  • 2 tbsp CSR Pure Icing Sugar, sifted
  • 1 punnet (250g) strawberries, to serve

Passionfruit Syrup:

  • ½ cup (110g) CSR Caster Sugar
  • 125ml passionfruit pulp (about 4 passionfruits)
  • 60ml water

Method

  1. Prepare, bake and chill White Wings Baked Cheesecake Tart mix as directed.
  2. For the passionfruit syrup, combine sugar, passionfruit pulp and ¼ cup (60mL) water in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook until sugar dissolves. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3-4 mins until syrup has reduced slightly.
  3. Remove from the heat and refrigerate for 2 hours until chilled and thickened.
  4. For the cream topping, use an electric mixer to whisk crème fraîche, cream and icing sugar on high for 1-2 mins until soft peaks form.
  5. Place cheesecake on a serving platter. Spoon over cream, top with strawberries and drizzle with passionfruit syrup to serve.

Halve or quarter the strawberries to serve if preferred!
