Quick and Easy Vanilla Passion Fruit Cake

Are you looking for a delicious cake that is quick and easy to make and fit for any occassion? Well look no further. My Vanilla Passion Fruit Cake is easy to make, taste heavenly and it will look like you have spend hours in the kitchen.


Cake fit for a tea party




Vanilla Sponge Cake

2 1/2 cups (625ml) Self Raising Flour
2 cups (500ml) Sugar
4 large Eggs
1 cup (250ml) Milk
1/4 cup (65ml) Vegetable Oil
1 tsp (5ml) Pure Vanilla Extract

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celcius.
Mix the eggs and sugar together till thick.
Add the flour, milk, oil and vanilla
Beat till smooth and creamy. Pour into two prepared round cake tins (20cm)

Bake for 30-40 mins. It is done when a test pin comes out clean.

LET THE CAKE COOL COMPLETELY

Icing

2 cups (500ml) Icing Sugar
125g Unslated Soft Butter
100g Passion Fruit pulp (fresh or canned)

Mix the butter and icing sugar together till light and fluffy, add the passion fruit pulp and beat lightly.

Wait till the cake is completely cool, assemble and ice with Icing.

Now this is where the fun part comes in, the cake is already wonderfuly decadent, but if you are making it for a special occassion then you have to add something to make it look like you have spend hours working on it (get my drift). I added some different sugar flowers that I have made and experimented with, you can either make a few or alot of sugar flowers before hand (they keep well in an airtight container) or you can buy some, whatever works best for you.

Add the flowers and voila! you have a cake fit for any occassion.
