    This looks really lovely. I like how the cake looks like a torte, smooth and creamy. I love the idea of a passion fruit and banana mix.

    We’re big fallowers from your wonderful recipes, thanks for such a beautiful site plenty of creativity and flavor.
    Today we’ve a small question.
    Can we replace the passion fruit pulp with passion fruit juice?
    We live in the netherlands and it’s not allways easy to find passion fruits.
    Thanks for your attention, we hope to listen from you soon.
