It's my little mans 3rd birthday tomorrow, so today I shall bake him a birthday cake. He is obsessed with chocolate be it raw, dark, milk, white! So I conjured up the image of a white chocolate and passionfruit combination in a rich moist mud cake.


250 grams butter
150 grams white chocolate
2 cups sugar
1/2 sour cream
1 tablespoon vanilla paste
1/2 cup passionfruit pulp
300 grams plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 150 degrees celsius. Add butter, white chocolate, sugar, sour cream and vanilla to a pan and on low heat melt all ingredients. Once melted stir in passionfruit pulp and allow to cool for 15 minutes. Add wet ingredients to dry and then mix in eggs. Divide mixture in half and cook each batch in a 23 cm silicone round baking dish (or prepared 23 cm baking tin) for 25-30 minutes until set. Allow to cool for 15 minutes in tin before turning out.

Melting all the mud cake ingredients together.
Ready for a long slow cook in the oven.

1/2 cup sugar
60 grams butter chopped
2 eggs
6 passion fruits pulp

In a small saucepan over medium heat stir together sugar and butter until melted together, turn to low and add the beaten eggs and passionfruit pulp and stir until thickened, strain and allow to cool.

One of my favourite fruits - The passion fruit.

Sandwich the two layers with passionfruit curd and serve

Sitting in the mould ready to be turned out.
