Brazilian-style Guava Cheesecake

Guava paste is a much-loved Brazilian sweet made from guava, sugar and water. It is widely used in baking and cooking adding a wonderful sweet floral flavour to desserts, cakes and cookies. Topping it over cheesecake makes a perfect combination and this recipe is unbelievably simple to make and tastes wonderful.

200g digestive biscuits
200g butter
300g ricotta
1 can condensed milk
3 eggs
1 cup milk
300g guava paste
1 cup water

Lightly grease a round cake tray.
Preheat oven at 180C.
Place biscuit crumbs in a blender and grind it well. Mix biscuits and butter in a bowl. Press the mix in the cake tray to make the base and set aside.
Mix the condensed milk, ricotta, eggs and milk in  a blender and pour over the base.
Bake in the oven at 180C for 40 minutes.
Cut small cubes of guava and melt it in a pan or microwave stirring occasionally with some water, then pour over the cheesecake when it's baked. Allow it to cool, remove from the tin and place in the fridge.

You may purchase this Guava Paste at Brazilian Style Foods' online shop.

Definitely different from other cheesecakes I've tried. Absolutely delicious!
