Passionfruit Delight Cake

Do you love passionfruit?

If like me, you do, you’re going to love this cracker cake – complete with mouth-watering Passionfruit butter Frosting!

You can happily serve this cake without the syrup but it adds an extra and very delicious third passionfruit dimension to the cake!

All passionfruit pulp can be strained if you don’t like the seeds.
