Saturday 17th March 2007Baked Gingernut Cheesecake with Kiwifruit
When Peabody announced the Cheesecake themed,
10th round of Hay Hay it's Donna Day, I knew right away I was going to make a ginger flavoured cheesecake, a
Gingernut and Crystalized Glacé Ginger variation of my Baked Lemon
Gingernuts and Ginger flavoured beverages, biscuits, slices, cakes and not to mention desserts are hugely popular in my family and in New Zealand as a whole.
Initially I was thinking of topping my cheesecake with a plum coulis or plum jelly, as I find fresh tart plums and spicy sweet ginger a delightful pairing. However, as us girls are prone to do... I changed my mind!
In the end, simply peeling and slicing some Kiwifruit to arrange around the top, adding a little more chopped Crystalized Glacé Ginger and the ever essential dessert ingredient... some bittersweet chocolate!
Cheesecake is characteristically a very rich dessert therefore pairing with some fresh and slightly acidic or citrus fruit is ideal. Passionfruit, kiwifruit, tart plums or berries in my opinion all work extremely well. It also became apparent my choice of kiwifruit was appropriate for a second reason. As I had nothing planned for St. Patrick's Day, the green kiwifruit therefore was a fair and befitting "Green thang."
I look forward to seeing who will play host to round #11 of HHDD, especially with the gorgeous, handsome ;-) and original array of entries I've seen so far.
