Fruit powders in cheesecake


After chatting with one of my lovely customers (that's you Kim!) and she was telling me about how she had used the passionfruit fruit powder in cheescake and was going to make them in the way I had for the Christmas bauble cheesecakes from 2009 (click here for that post - photo below). I couldn't resist trying it for myself and the taste, how can I describe it?, "to die for" comes to mind. What was also interesting for me, was my daughter was prepared to try it because it was just yellow (no black seeds) and she loved it, but would never previously try passionfruit, because of the "black bits"



But I had to take it one step further and try the raspberry powder as well, it rated right up there too, but passionfruit was definitely my favourite. However my dear hubby & daughter preferred the berry. It was so easy to split a cheescake mix 50/50 and do some passionfruit and some raspberry, it would be easy to keep everyone happy. I think they would work well in the cupcake size cheescake, like those I did with strawberry hearts from 2010 (click here for that post) And of course in the fruit powders - there's a wide range to choose from, with other berries, mango & plum too


I also think with a bowl of freshly cut strawberries, a squirt of cheescecake from a piping bag, using a decorative nozzle, makes a nice addition, following a heavy meal, when a large piece of cheesecake might be too much for lighter eaters. (I won't include myself in that one, I always have room for cheesecake!)
