Let's eat: Passionfruit
Sweet treats get a special tang with this wonderful autumn fruit
This easy cake is a simple base that can take being partnered with some intense flavours, such as these, which make it just that little more luxurious. My top tip for this recipe is using lemonade rather than making sugar syrup — this is a winning timesaver in my eyes. This cake is ideal for a special afternoon tea or as a dessert.
All I can say is, oh my goodness, this stuff is divine. It may seem like a bit of a fiddle needing a sugar thermometer and a stand mixer but seriously, give it a go and you will be rewarded. If you want to make this outside of passionfruit season try a store-bought pulp; I use the Fresh As freeze-dried passionfruit powder.
