Passionfruit cake recipe with passionfruit syrup.

Hello Cakeday Sunday. Which means Passion Fruit Cake with tangy Passion Fruit Syrup day. And almost happy Mother’s Day.

I love cake. Heck I am certain that I could go through life surviving solely on cake, orange vegetables and a few spices. OK, I maaaaaaaay have to throw in some protein every now and then, but you get the gist, right? It is all about the cake.

You may have noticed a teeny little trend on my little blog. You may notice a few (who am I kidding, a LOT of) Bundt Cake recipes. I apologise, but it just that I after 2 years of really, really wanting one, I finally splashed out on a Bundt pan. Two years peeps and I am going to be making up for it.  So a gazillion Bundt Cake recipes, like this Orange Bundt Cake With Salted Caramel Whiskey Sauce that had to be made.

When the lovely team at Waitrose asked me to come up with a cake recipe in celebration of Mother’s Day (#ThanksMum), well you guessed it – I reached for the Bundt tin and whipped up this Passion Fruit Bundt Cake.

Passionfruit lends itself quite well to cakes as the tartness of the passion fruit pairs wonderfully with the sweetness of the cakes. To be honest, I generally add fresh unchanged passionfruit directly unto cakes but I decided to make a Passionfruit Syrup for this version. And it is really good. I might have eaten about half the Passion Fruit Syrup before the Bundt cake actually came out of the oven. Try making it and see if you don’t end up doing the same.
