Passionfruit Cake

Steve brought home 7 passionfruits from work Friday, so I decided to make something with them, especially as they wouldn't last long in this heat. I did a quick on-line search and found this recipe for passionfruit cake. It's really amazing, so I may need to try more from Amanda.

3 eggs
1 c sugar
1 1/2 c self-raising flour
1/2 c passionfruit pulp (about 3 fruits)

1/3 c butter (75 grams)
2 c icing sugar
4 passionfruit

Separate eggs. Beat yolks and sugar together, gradually add flour and passionfruit pulp.The mix will be very dry. Beat egg whites stiff with a clean beater. Gently fold into the mixture (will be moist now). Bake 40 mins at about 160C.

Beat butter until light and fluffy.
Gradually add icing sugar and passionfruit pulp.

OMG, that sounds amazing. I love passionfruit. It's hard to find fresh passionfruit in the stores here, but I can get frozen passionfruit pulp. Do you think that would work?

Yep that should work I would think. Try it and let me know;)
