I had a good day, I made a cake. Not the cake I wanted, but it was a cake. I was going to do a nougat passionfruit sponge I saw on Bizzy Lizzie’s Good Things recently. I was so sure I will find canned passionfruit, I baked the cake. My search took me all over town looking for passionfruit, but I had no luck. Then yesterday in desperation I bought some raspberries, made a quick whipped cream icing and I finished the cake. I don’t even know what to call it just yet. The cake turned out well, but the recipe is definitely not for a novice cake maker. It must be heavenly with passionfruit! My Aussie friend, Jan once tried to explain to me passionfruit's wonderful flavour, but I never had the chance to actually taste it. There was one store that said they could order fresh passionfruit from India, but it would be frightfully expensive and they would rather not do that. I have not given up hope though; I get my Hungarian paprika on line, who says I cannot order canned passionfruit. Ah I am sure there is a store in Vancouver or in Toronto that carries it. Stay tuned, I have not yet given up.
I was gifted for mothers day with many good things, but this apron takes the cake:
- It began with posting a few recipes on line for my family. "zsuzsa is in the kitchen" has more than 1000 Hungarian and International recipes. What started out as a private project turned into a well visited blog. The number of visitors long passed the two million mark. I organized my recipes into an on-line cookbook. On top of the page click on the cookbook to access the recipes. I am not profiting from my blog, so my visitors will not be harassed with advertising or flashy gadgets.
