Passionfruit and Lychee Cheesecake

Passionfruit and Lychee Cheesecake

I guess some of you now know that cheesecake is one of my specialty and we have potlucks this is the most requested dish from me by families and friends. I think I had posted five cheesecakes recipes already and this is the sixth one. Our cheesecake today is quite unique as this is an Ang Sarap Original, meaning it’s a new creation by yours truly.

This was requested in our office hence I was making some and I was thinking of creating something different from what I already posted before. When I was creating this I was thinking of making something fruity, something unique so passionfruit first came to mind, but that has been made so I need to pair it with something else, a fruit that will complement each other’s flavour, a flavour that you can distinguish from each other. Rambutan first came to mind but that’s quite hard to find, then how about some longans, same thing it’s seasonal so I ended up with lychees which is quite easier to look for, you can also find these in cans, and these three almost taste the same.

First I tried it in a really small batch, ramekin sized so I know what the end result will be and at first attempt it was great it only lacks the lychee flavour so I have to infuse the flavours into the cheesecake itself putting chunks of lychees to give a better lychee taste and here was the final result a recipe that you can follow.
