Passion Coco Delicious

We had an abundance of passionfruit and lemons over the weekend due partly to me buying them a week before because they were cheaper by the tray full. There was the usual idea to make a lemon loaf cake and bung in some passionfruit, but because the weather was so dreary, I really felt like pudding. Having remembered how easy a Lemon Delicious was to make, bunging in some Passionfruit takes no more effort, and its so easy you can make it with your eyes closed. For those that haven't had a Lemon Delicious, think of this as a liquid mixture that splits into two in the oven; a beautiful passionfruit curd on the bottom and a coconutty sponge floating on top :)

Prep time: 20 mins | Cooking time: 30-35mins in the oven

Sponge mix
  • 1 cup Self Raising flour, sifted
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1/2 cup toasted shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 egg
  • 80gm melted (and cooled) butter
Sauce mix
  • 3 tsps (organic) cornflour
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 ripe passionfruit with pulp scooped out
1.  Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees celsius, and grease a baking dish that is 20cm x 25cm (a baking dish that holds 6 cups of water will also do, but if it is quite deep, you will have to increase the baking time)
2.  Combine sifted flour, sugar & toasted coconut in a large bowl. 
3.  In a separate jug, whisk together the coconut milk, water, egg and butter, then gently fold into the dry ingredients. Carefully spoon out the batter into your prepared baking dish and set aside
4.  Mix together the cornflour and sugar then sprinkle this over the batter that's in the baking dish.
5.  Pour lemon juice and milk together into a small saucepan and place over heat, stirring constantly until the mixture just comes to the boil.
6.  Take the saucepan off the heat and stir in the passionfruit pulp
7.  Pour this over the back of a large metal spoon (so that the sauce doesn't cut through the batter) onto your baking dish batter, and place in the oven for 30-35 mins.
8.  Serve warm with a sprinkling of icing sugar and perhaps some vanilla ice cream or creme fraiche!
