Passion Fruit Pound Cake

A few weeks ago, my aunt made a bottle of fresh passion fruit pulp and stored in the fridge.

A few days ago, I opened the fridge and saw the passion fruit pulp and it’s still fresh and full, which means no one drank or use or make a juice out of it. So, I decided to make something out of this fresh passion fruit pulp. I think there’s lot of things that you can make out of passion fruit pulps and out of all these things, I decided to make a passion fruit pound cake.

Never eat pound cake before nor did I ever make a passion fruit cake. So I told myself “well, today is a good day, lets make a passion fruit pound cake”

Ingredients :

  • 280 gr sugar
  • 100 gr softened unsalted butter
  • 200 gr eggs
  • 300 gr all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 260 ml passion fruit pulp

Method :

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degree celcius.
  2. Grease a round cake pan with butter or margarine.
  3. In a bowl, mix sugar, softened butter and eggs until they are well combined.
  4. Sift in the flour and baking powder. Mix them with the egg mixture.
  5. Fold in the passion fruit pulp.
  6. Β Pour the batter into the cake pan and bake for about 50 – 55 minutes.
  7. Let it cool on a pan for 10 minutes before cooling the cake completely on a cooling rack.
  8. Serve and Enjoy!

Pizza

I never make a pizza before even though I love to bake. I heard that pizza is one of the easiest thing that you could make at home [well, actually I heard it from my older sister], and so one Sunday afternoon I decided to make my own small pizza.

Ingredients :

  • 180 gr sifted bread flour
  • 100 ml warm water
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 gr salt
  • 3 gr instant yeast
  • 15 gr sugar
  • Shredded chicken, japanese curry powder (S&B), cube carrots, Kraft cheese slices [toppings]

Method :

  1. In a small bowl, mix instant yeast and warm water. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, mix bread flour and salt and sugar. Pour the warm water mixture and 1 tbsp oil into the bowl. Knead the dough until it becomes smooth.
  3. Place the dough in greased bowl and cover it with plastic wrap or cloth and let it rest for 1 hour or until the dough is doubled.
  4. Start to cook the carrots with the curry powder [following the instruction from the curry powder package].
  5. Preheat the oven to 220 degree celcius.
  6. Dust the working table with corn meal and roll the dough on top of it, leaving a 1 cm thickness at the sides.
  7. Spread the toppings [curry, carrots, shredded chicken and cheese slices].
  8. Bake the pizza for 15 – 20 minutes [Depending on the type of oven].
  9. Serve and Enjoy!

  3. Once the dough forms a smooth texture, put in a bowl and cover it and let it rest for 1 hour or until the size of the dough doubled.
  4. Once the dough is doubled, punch the dough so as to let the gas out. Cut the dough into 4Β pieces. For me, each piece weigh approximately 117 gr. Using your hand, form the small pieces of dough into a small ball and make a small hole in the middle of the dough. Let it rest for about 30 minutes or until doubled.
  5. Preheat the oven to 180 degree celcius.
