passionfruit & apple cake
We are in abundance of passionfruits around here. Our four vines have gone bananas over the past few months. After we have eaten our daily share, given away to any visitors and Ruby has stolen her daily two from the vine (no kidding, morning and afternoon without fail she steals one and chews them open for some passionfruit loving) we still have an abundance left over.
Lately I have been experimenting with different passionfruit flavoured cakes. After a failed pineapple and passionfruit upside down cake (a disaster) all shortcomings were forgotten with this delicious and super easy passionfruit and apple cake.
3/4 cup caster sugar
2 cups self raising flour
1/2 cup milk
pulp of 4 passionfruits
1 large granny smith apple peeled and sliced into thin slices
1 tablespoon soft butter
1 1/2 cups icing sugar
Pulp of 2 passionfruits
Preheat oven to 180'C
Cream butter and sugar
Add eggs and mix
Add sifted flour and milk
Add passionfruit pulp and mix well
Pour half of mixture into prepared tin
Layer apple slices over cake mixture
Pour the rest of the cake mixture into Tin
Bake for 40 minutes - cake will look golden early so watch out not to undercook.
Once cooled drizzle with icing.
