Friday night's dinner party also saw this lovely little dessert come out to play.
I messed around with this recipe (with interesting results) because I just couldn't bring myself to buy custard powder! This was not because I am a purist (well that too) but also because my pantry is full to bursting and I just couldn't justify adding an item to the shelves that I just knew I wouldn't use.
It turns out that messing about with baking ingredients doesn't always destroy the result. Granted, my sponge was so flat it couldn't be split even with the steadiest of hands, but somehow it was still beautifully light and fluffy.
I broke the cake into pieces and served it drizzled with the passionfruit "icing" and beside a good dollop of whipped cream.
...and I didn't hear any complaints x
