Easy one bowl passionfruit bundt cake

6 Oct


How delicious is the zing of passionfruit in baked goods? Teamed with buttery morsels, such as this super simple bundt, it produces a memorable result. Don’t be deceived by the simplicity of this cake – it may have just 6 ingredients and take no time to whip up but it produces an incredible cake.

You could make this easily with store cupboard ingredients if no fresh passionfruit are at hand. I used fresh ones when my local greengrocer had them on sale at an incredible price. I used three good size ones.



125g butter at room temperature, chopped

¾ cup caster sugar

2 eggs

2 cups sifted self-raising flour

½ cup of milk

¼ cup passionfruit pulp [canned is fine if it is out of season]



Preheat oven to 180C and thoroughly grease a bundt pan, ensuring you get into all the nooks and crannies.

Put everything except passionfruit pulp into bowl of electric mixer and beat until combined. Increase speed until mixture is changed in colour.

Using a spoon stir through passionfruit pulp.

Scrape into bowl and bake about 45 minutes/until a skewer comes out clean.

When cold dust with sifted icing sugar.

    I love passion fruit a lot but it is still very expensive over here in Belgium! But I must make this delectably looking cake! Yummmm!

      It can be expensive at times in Australia, too! That’s when I used the stuff in a tin. Do you have tinned passionfruit in Belgium or is it an Australian thing?

        It is an Australian thing! :)

    I love passionfruit in cakes, it really lifts the flavour beautifully doesn’t it? :)

    I love passion fruit and yes, I’m definitely an advocate for the one bowl cake mix too.

    There’s something so refreshingly good about creating a simple cake with few ingredients and being wowed by the results.

    The old school method is making a comeback (not only because I’m not allowed to use a mixer at culinary school) but also because I think home cooks don’t want to fuss with all the other stuff and hopefully get back to basics and the simple life!

    I like passion….. And fruit! It’s a win win cakey!

      It is a passionate & fruity cakey :)

    You’ve just reminded me that we need to put a big passionfruit vine in. Been without passionfruit for too long

    • thehungrymum October 10, 2012 at 11:03 am #

      Hopefully you’ll have more success than us – our vine lasted one season before it shrivelled & died :(

    Oh my god – I adore passion fruit! When I was little we’d go to this hill station near where I grew up and I adored it; the cooler weather, the scent of eucalyptus, the long winding roads, the lazy rainfall that punctuated the day – and PASSION FRUIT! My mum would make it into cordial and we’d drink it all day long, all summer long. Lovely memories! This looks SO divine!

    • thehungrymum October 10, 2012 at 11:19 pm #

      I just love your writing style Awanthi – I feel like *I* was there with you, drinking cordial and smelling the eucalyptus. So poetic x

      • Awanthi @ Sybaritic Pleasures October 11, 2012 at 4:17 am #

        Ah, thank you. :) For the record, you would love Ooty and Coonoor; they are beautiful hill stations. Life is just – slower – there. :)

    Yum.. I love passionfruit but I never bake or cook with it nearly enough! Now I feel like baking a passionfruit slice haha

    • thehungrymum October 14, 2012 at 3:41 am #

      Pretty much all I do with passionfruit is bake with it :) I’m not a tropical fruit fan!

    it is a cold, wet day and have to visit a friend tonight. Wanted to make a cake to take with me, but did not want to have to go out to buy any ingredients. Had passion fruit that i dont want to go to waste and found your recipe. Doubled the recipe and made to cakes. We cut into one, boy was is light, fluffy and very delicious. Thankyou for a very easy recipe that is fail proof. Will definately be making this again.

      Your comment has made my day! Glad the cake was a success, and good to know it can easily be doubled. Thanks for the feedback :)
