Blueberry and passionfruit cheesecake

So as I was looking through old food pics for the April A to Z challenge I found this from 26 November 2011. Nice biscuit base, blueberry and white chocolate filling and passion fruit topping. The topping on a cheesecake can change anything!
Passionfruit cheesecake
I use my basic recipe here - but with this one leave out the lemon zest - orange zest might go well though. You can change the cottage cheese for quark, marscapone etc. You can also add in white chocolate - in which case reduce the amount of cornflour.
For the jelly topping:

Scoop out 3 passionfruit
Mix with c. 200 mls passionfruit juice
Heat.
Soften 3 leaves gelatine in cold water. Add to warmed passionfruit and allow to melt. Stir and pour on top of cooked & chilled cheesecake. Set in fridge - needs to be absolutely level or it can end up with some patchy bits not covered, while other parts have thick jelly. This can rectified by making another jelly topping and setting a second layer on top.
