I am not really one for cakes, well baking them. I have done far better with bread, pies and even pastries. However recently I have found a new interest in a different kind of baking. It has even added a rather interesting dimension to my own cooking.
The this recipe I find to fir both sides. Similar to making a sort of bread as well as being extremely delicious. I found that this was also a great size for two to four people. In fact I would even have it as a morning tea type cake. Just scrumptious really.
I hope you enjoy making the cake and do let us know how yours came out.
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
4 passionfruit (granadilla)
110 grams eggs (about 2 chicken eggs)
6 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
In a large bowl mix together the eggs, oil, sugar and vanilla essence
Add the baking powder and 1 cup of flour to the mixture and stir well
Add the pulp from 2 1/2 passionfruit and mix it through
Preheat the oven to 160 °C
Add the remaining flour and milk to the mixture and stir it all in
Oil a regular sized loaf tin and place the mixture in the tin
Allow baking for 40 min
Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool for at least 30 minutes
While the cake cools place the remaining passionfruit pulp in a bowl. Add a teaspoon of icing sugar until you have a thickish consistency, making your passionfruit glaze
Once the cake has cooled, cover the top of the cake with the passionfruit glaze
