This Passion Fruit delight is, contrary to what one might think, an easy and quick dessert to prepare. Apart from the fruits that must be bought ripe, the rest is from the kitchen cupboard …
First, here is the list of the different ingredients you will need to prepare the Passion Fruit Delight for 6 to 8 people
- 3 large free range eggs
- 80g or 3 1/2 oz sifted flour
- 100g or 4 oz caster sugar
- 6 passion fruit
- 2 tsp cornstarch
- 2 tbsp icing sugar
Now here are the few steps you will need to follow to make this delicious Passion Fruit Cake with a 20 minute prep and 8-10 minute bake.
Preheat the oven to 200°C or 400°F. Line a medium sized baking sheet with parchment paper. Butter and flour the paper.
Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Whisk the egg whites with a pinch of salt. Whisk the yolks with the sugar until the mixture whitens. Add half the flour and egg whites. Mix gently with a spatula and incorporate the remaining flour and egg whites.
Pour this dough on the baking sheet for 7 to 10 minutes maximum. The sponge cake should be barely golden, without being dry.
Un-mold the sponge cake immediately on a damp kitchen cloth. Remove the paper and wrap the sponge cake in the kitchen towel. Let cool.
To prepare the Sauce: Put the passion fruit juice with the sugar, the cornstarch and one tablespoon water in a small saucepan. Mix everything well and cook gently for a few minutes until the mixture is smooth.
Unroll the sponge cake gently, spread 1/3 of the sauce. Roll up your sponge cake again and cover the roll with the remaining sauce. Serve cold.
