    Hi
    What size pan would you use?
    Thanks

      A 20cm circle cake pan is what I use.

    When you say coconut, do you mean dessicated coconut or coconut milk?

    • Amanda September 4, 2015 at 12:29 pm #

      Desiccated coconut.

    Hi, do you need to put it through a food processor?

    • Amanda September 4, 2015 at 12:29 pm #

      Hi Kristie, you could use a stand or hand mixer instead.

      Thanks

    Hi this sounds delicious! Would this cake be okay to eat if I made it ahead of time? How far ahead would be the limit?

    • Amanda November 10, 2015 at 6:51 pm #

      I would suggest only make it the day before you want to serve it, other wise make it and freeze it and then defrost on the day you will serve and ice it.

    Hi, just wondering if this cake is suitable for layering? I’m wanting to do 3 layers high with buttercream between each layer but need a cake that’ll be strong enough. Thanks, Louise

    • Amanda May 24, 2016 at 7:13 pm #

      Hi Louise, yes it would be perfect for that. If you are making three layers I suggest making three separate batches. You’ll get a lovely high cake. Try adding some passionfruit to the buttercream after whipping for added flavour.

      This cake goes very well with a layer made of chocolate. Try white chocolate shavings on top.

    Just made this cake and it is delicious. I made a passion fruit butter cream icing also. Thanks for the easy tasty recipe.

    I just made this cake. Amazingly easy, tasted yum and the quickest wash up after! Thanks for this recipe!

      So glad to hear.

    Would be ok to use almond flour? Have anyone tired? Thanks

    • Amanda October 1, 2017 at 10:10 am #

      I haven’t tried it but it’s worth a shot.

    Can you do the same with mangoes? Please

    • Amanda May 14, 2018 at 9:16 am #

      HI Carole, yes you could. I would add passionfruit as well yo boost the flavour as the mango flavour does become minimal when baked.

    Hi Amanda,

    Bit of a silly question, should I include the seeds in the pulp? I’ve never cooked with passion fruit before and I’m not much of a baker so wouldn’t know!

    Thank you!

    • Amanda June 11, 2018 at 9:21 am #

      HI, yes include the seeds 🙂
