With a few ingredients, making a delicious passionfruit cake is easy.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup (160ml) passionfruit pulp – 5 passionfuits
  • 250-gram butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon rind
  • 1 cup (220g) caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • ¾ cup (180ml) milk
  • 2 cup (300g) self-rising flour

 

Lemon syrup

  • 3/4 cup (165g) caster sugar
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) water

 

Preparation

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°. Grease and lightly flour a 24cm pan.

Step 2

Strain your passionfruit seeds over a jug to get the seeds and the juice separately.

Reserve juice for cake mixture, and seeds for lemon syrup.

Step 3

Beat butter, rind, and sugar in a small bowl with a mixer until light and fluffy.

Beat in the eggs, before adding in milk and passionfruit juice. Add in the sifted flour in two batches. And combine.

Step 4

Pour the mixture into the pan. Then bake the cake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Step 5

Leave cake in the pan for 5 minutes before turning it onto a wire rack placed over a tray.

Step 6

To make the lemon syrup, place sugar, lemon juice, water, and half the reserved passionfruit seeds in a small saucepan. Stir over heat, without boiling, until sugar dissolves.

Step 7

Pour hot syrup over hot cake; serve cake warm or freeze for later use.
