Passion fruit gives these light individual cheesecakes a wonderful tangy flavour.


  • 6 shortbread rounds (to fit base of ramekin)

  • 250g cream cheese, broken up

  • 250g ricotta cheese

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 cup caster sugar

  • 2 tbls lime juice

  • 2/3 cup passionfruit pulp


  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 160 degrees C

  • 2.

    Place 1 shortbread round in each ramekin. If biscuit doesn't fit ramekin exactly, break off some biscuit pieces from another shortbread round and fill space until base is covered.

  • 3.

    In a food processor, mix the cream cheese, ricotta, eggs, sugar and lime juice until the mixture becomes smooth.

  • 4.

    Stir through the fresh passionfruit pulp until evenly dispersed.

  • 5.

    Spoon mixture into each ramekin dish - enough to fill the dish. The mixture won't rise.

  • 6.

    Bake in oven for 12-15 minutes.

  • 7.

    Cheesecakes can be eaten immediately or chilled in the refrigerator.


Cheesecakes are delicious on their own, but you can also add some fresh raspberries and sprinkle with icing sugar.
