Granadilla fridge tart with white chocolate ganache

Granadilla fridge tart with white chocolate ganache

A modern twist on a South African classic


Chocolate ganache

200ml fresh cream

100g good quality white

Chocolate, chopped

Pinch salt


1 x 200g packet Bakers

Tennis Biscuits

75g butter, melted


385g full-cream sweetened condensed milk

125ml (½ cup) lemon juice

1 x 250g tub plain full-cream

cream cheese, at room temperature

2 x 110g tins granadilla pulp



For the chocolate ganache, heat the fresh cream in a saucepan over medium-high heat and as it starts to boil, scatter over the white chocolate. Stir the creamy chocolate mixture until all of the chocolate has melted. Mix in the salt and refrigerate in a medium bowl, about 3 – 4 hours, until completely chilled.


While the chocolate ganache is chilling, make the tart crust by placing the biscuits in a food processor and blitzing them; alternatively, crush them with a rolling pin until fine. Transfer to a bowl and mix in the melted butter.


Press the biscuit crust mixture firmly into a 23cm-diameter greased pie dish, making sure the crust goes up the sides. Place in the fridge, 30 minutes.


For the filling, mix the condensed milk and lemon juice together, and set aside to thicken, 20 minutes. Mix the cream cheese until smooth, add 1 of the tins granadilla pulp and incorporate well. Combine the cream cheese and pulp mixture with the condensed milk mixture, and carefully spoon into the pie crust. Place in the fridge to set until the chocolate ganache (already in the fridge) has cooled down completely.


Once the chocolate ganache has cooled down, beat with an electric mixer until firm and spread over the granadilla filling. Spoon over the remaining tin granadilla pulp and serve.
