This is originally from Nigel Slater but I modified it by adding mango because these 2 fruits go so well together. I also made some changes here and there.
I used mascarpone but feel free to use cream cheese.

YOU NEED:
100g butter
400g ginger biscuits

250g mascarpone OR cream cheese, softened
100g to 130g icing sugar, depending on how sweet you like it, sifted
1 vanilla pod OR 1 tsp vanilla extract
Zest of one orange
400ml sour cream
1 tin Nestles cream
1/4 cup boiling water
3 gelatine leaves
2 ripe, wrinkled passion fruits
1 large mango, or 2 medium ones, ripe and of the non-fibrous variety.

Grease an 8inch tin lightly. Microwave the butter to melt. Using a blender or processor (make sure it is clean)...process the biscuits to crumbs and add in the butter...process once or twice to mix until it resembles damp sand.
Alternatively,smash the biscuits yourself and mix in the butter.
Press the biscuits into the tin evenly and leave in the freezer while you get on with the filling.

Soak the 2 gelatine leaves in water to soften for 5 minutes then stir it in the boiling water, it will dissolve...set aside.

Split the pod open and scrape out the seeds, reserve the pod for another use (for example, pop into some sugar to make vanilla flavoured sugar).

In your mixer, cream the mascarpone and icing sugar till blended,add the vanilla seeds OR the extract and the orange zest.
Add the sour cream, Nestle's cream and whip till smooth.
Stir the gelatine solution and pour it in, mix till blended. Taste your batter and see if you want to sift in more sugar to blend.

To your frozen base, pour in the batter and tap the tin once or twice on the table to even out the batter.
Chill for at least 5 hours or overnight. Unmould the cake.
Slice the mango up and lay it decoratively over the cake, overlapping the slices of mango.
Cut the passion fruit open,scrape out the pulp and spoon over the cake,letting some run down to the sides of the plate.
Serve immediately...very refreshing!!

Aunty Lucy tried it out and it looks like this:

Yikes eunice

Sorry, made a mistake. Cannot buy fresh passionfruit in Chang Tung. You can only get the pulp from there I think...

Eunice,

If I am not mistaken, they also cultivate it in the fruit world (forgot the name) in Melaka. It was open to public since end of 2006. The entrance fees is about RM 30+ or could be more.

Sorry eunice, missed this post. I cant remember the price ler...So sorry. But as I've said earlier, the one I saw is just the pulp...not the fresh fruit type.
