I love making this Valentine’s Day cheesecake! Cheesecakes in general seem like such romantic desserts to me. I made it a tradition for Valentine’s Day, on February 14, to prepare this delicious cheesecake.

Passion fruit and Peaches Cheesecake

Ingredients for 20-22 cm tray

220 g digestive biscuits + 80 g butter
Mascarpone cream
250 g mascarpone cheese
200 ml unsweetened whipped cream
2 tablespoons of honey
juice from a half lime and 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
Topping: 4 ripe peaches + 10 pieces of passion fruit,
gelatin for 500 ml composition of fruit juice and 1 tablespoon of sugar

Garnish with your favorite fruits


The base for passion fruit and peaches cheesecake

  1. Prepare the base with biscuits and butter. Melt the butter over low heat and in the meantime crush the digestive biscuits.
  2. After the butter melts, add the crushed biscuits on top of it and mix gently until the biscuits absorbed the butter completely.
  3. Place the composition in the round dessert tray with removable walls and pressed it evenly.
  4. Put the base dessert into the refrigerator and leave it there until you prepare the mascarpone cream for the cheesecake.

Mascarpone cream for cheesecake

  1. In a bowl, you need to mix mascarpone, honey, and juice from half a lime and vanilla essence.
  2. Gently blend with a wooden spoon the ingredients until homogenized.
  3. Then mix the whipping cream until it stiffened, but not overdone – I do the test by turning the bowl over, it shouldn’t run off the bowl.
  4. Put the whipping cream on top of the mascarpone mixture and with light movements mix them until they were perfectly incorporated.
  5. Take the base dessert from the refrigerator and add the newly created mascarpone cream over the top of the biscuits. Everything is waiting in the fridge until you will finish making the passion fruit and peach jelly.

Passion fruit and peach jelly

  1. Start by peeling the peaches, as peach skin is bitter and must be removed.
  2. Cut the peaches into small pieces, put them in a saucepan over medium heat, and add a large glass of water over them (the water should reach 1/2 inches at the bottom of the saucepan) and a spoonful of sugar – if you prepare this cheesecake in peach season and they are super ripe, you can skip adding the sugar.
  3. Meanwhile, wash and cut in half all the passion fruit pieces. With a spoon, remove the edible part from the inside of the peels in a sieve. Using a teaspoon, pass the passion fruit through a sieve to remove the seeds. Add the seedless mixture over the peaches after turning off the heat. Blend the composition and let it cool a little.
  4. Meanwhile, start to prepare the gelatin according to the instructions on the package. Its preparation differs depending on the company from which you choose the product. Then incorporate the gelatin over the created fruit composition.
  5. Take the dessert out of the refrigerator and pour the jelly evenly over the mascarpone cream and refrigerate until the jelly is set – about 3 hours or preferably overnight.

Now it’s time to decorate the cheesecake with your favorite fruits. I decorated it with cranberries, strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries.

Enjoy with your loved ones this cheesecake with passion fruit and peaches – a fresh and aromatic dessert!

Why is this passion fruit and peaches cheesecake so simple?

no baked cheesecake

Well, first of all, it’s perfect because it doesn’t require baking, which makes it perfect on hot summer days when you don’t feel like leaving the oven. It is the dessert I prepare most often in the summer, along with the classic tiramisu. Both are quick to prepare and make delicious desserts.

Second, cheesecake is an easy dessert to customize with your favorite fruit flavors. All summer long you can enjoy the freshness and season of fruit and let your senses create something delicious. You can make jelly out of apricots, just peaches, mangoes, strawberries, and the list goes on and on. You just have to choose your favorite fruits.

And finally, if you discover this recipe in the off-season of ripe fruit, you can still enjoy this delicious cheesecake just by buying frozen fruit from the supermarket. I was skeptical about frozen fruit and researched to see what the deal was with it. And I found something very interesting, which is that even though they are frozen, they keep all your nutrients and are not affected by anything if they are frozen. Which is perfect!

I love making this passion fruit and peach cheesecake, especially when I have guests. The night before I prepare the delicious dessert and leave it in the fridge overnight. As I said above, if I can’t find peaches, I make it with mango. This is a fresh dessert and it is not sweet. If you like very sweet desserts, this cheesecake might not be to your taste. I am ok with both types of sweets, both fresh and sweet.

What desserts do you prefer? Fresh or sweet? I would be happy if you could share with me what is your favorite cheesecake and what fruits you use to make it. 🙂

I tried to find out what is the origin of the cheesecake!

At first glance, by the name, you would say he is from America or Great Britain. According to the ingredients, the mascarpone cream reminds us of Italy. A little google search takes you all over the world. Yes, my conclusion is that every country has its cheesecake. There are many traditional recipes from Spain, Italy, Greece, England, France, and even America and Japan, which misled me and I decided to believe that each country has its traditional cheesecake recipe.

  • Cheesecakes that we prepare in general I think have their origin in America, especially the no-bake ones, called New York Style Cheesecake.
  • In Poland, we meet Sernik cheesecake. I hope to prepare it myself someday, although at first glance it seems a bit complicated.
  • The Japanese Cheesecake looks super good and is very fluffy. I’ve never eaten but I’m curious to see how it tastes. I don’t know why, but it makes me think of a burnt sugar meringue.
  • Kasekuchen is a cheesecake from Germany. It looks really good and I think this one is delicious too.
  • In France, we meet the Fiadone cheesecake. I can’t wait to make this recipe myself. I looked at the ingredients and it’s exactly to my liking. With mild flavors of lemon or orange. A delight!
  • In Spain, we have the Basque cheesecake, from the Basque Country. It looks super cool and interesting. It is shortlisted for me because I want to prepare it and present it to you too.
  • In Austria we meet the Topfentorte cheesecake, as the name suggests, it looks more like a cake than a cheesecake. But I’m curious to see where his taste goes.

I can’t wait to try any cheesecake recipe I come across and to present it to you in its best version.
