Passionfruit cake

Yesterday we made this delicious passionfruit cake. We had an abundance of the fruit which we needed to use up and I just hate waste. It's packed with coconut and fruity goodness, tangy and tastes of summer. Cake and fruit is a perfect combination for me, so this recipe just made sense. And of course I had my favourite assistant helping out.

pulp of 8 passionfruits {to give roughlt 200mls}
100g desiccated coconut
165g Caster sugar
75g plain flour, sifted
4 eggs, lightly beaten
125g unsalted butter, melted
1tsp lemon juice
raspberries to serve, optional

25g unsalted butter, softened
225g icing sugar, sifted
plup from 1 passionfruit

Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Grease and line 18cm round cake pan.
Pulse the passionfruit pulp in a food processor or with a stick blender to loosen. Set aside.
Combine coconut, sugar and flour in a bowl. Fold in the eggs, butter, lemon juice, pulp and seeds, then fold together until combined.
Pour into the cake pan and bake for 35 minutes. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
For the icing, place butter and icing sugar in an electric mixer and beat until doubled in size then add
passionfruit pulp, mixing well until combined.
Spread icing over cooled cake.


Happy Friday!
