When is a Passionfruit Cake not a passionfruit cake? When it’s actually a lime cake with a heavenly passionfruit sauce.

I struggle to think of these cakes as lime, they are passionfruit cakes through and through for me.

The kick-in-the-pants flavor sensation comes from the gorgeous passionfruit sauce.

These lovely little cakes are only very subtly lime flavored, which provides a perfect background for the passionfruit sauce to shine.

Passionfruit is such an intense taste extravaganza. Fresh passionfruit pulp can be a little on the tart side. That’s not an issue here as the syrup is sweetened with sugar. How sweet is entirely up to you. I like a little bite to my passionfruit.

And for even more passionfruit cake heaven, the accompanying cream can be spiked with more passionfruit. Bliss!
