Zesty Passion Fruit and Blueberry Cake

This Cake got created coz I had all these fruits about to go bad in my house and wanted to use them and not throw them , I just hate throwing away food . Surprisingly , this cake turned out really great , the combination of flavours worked really well and thankfully I got a good recipe to post.The tartness of the passion fruit and orange juice works really well with the sweet blueberries plus the aroma of this cake is just too good ,  so here goes......


100 gms butter room temp
1 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
Zest and juice of 2 oranges
Zest of 1 lemon
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
Pulp of 1 passion fruit
1 cup of fresh or frozen blueberries


Cream the butter and sugar till pale and fluff
Add the eggs one at a time ,then the vanilla and beat it well.
Sift the flour and baking powder together and add it in the butter mixture alternating between the orange juice . Stir in the zests , passion fruit pulp and the blueberries .
Grease and line a loaf tin and bake in a preheated 180 c oven for 1 hr or till a toothpick inserted in the middle  comes out clean .
Cool on a wire rack and enjoy .

  5. So many delicious recipes are created out of the need to use up fruits and veggies before they are not good anymore. Necessity is the mother of creation. Your cake sounds just delicious. Blessings, Catherine xo
