This simple sponge cake is infused with the light fragrance of passionfruit and then topped with cubes of ripe mango for a double dose of tangy sweetness. The whipped cream beautifully balances out the overall tartness. This cake is best eaten the day it is assembled – leaving it out may cause the whipped cream to seep into the sponge and become soggy.

Ingredients

 70 ml oil
 90 g cake flour
 40 ml passion fruit juice
 6 medium sized eggs, separated
 20 ml milk
 80 g castor sugar
 1 g salt
TOPPING AND FILLING
 1 mango
 100 g whipped cream, whipped until stiff
 11 g roasted hazelnuts, chopped
 handful of mint leaves

Instructions

1

2

In a clean bowl, mix together oil, cake flour, passion fruit juice, egg yolks, milk and salt until combined.

3

Whip egg whites and sugar until medium peak to form meringue, mix 1/3 of egg yolks mixture until well combined and gently fold in the rest of the meringue to combine.

4

Bake in oven for 30 – 40 minutes until an inserted skewer comes out clean.

5

Cut mangoes into 1/2 inch cubes. Refrigerate before using.

6

Allow cake to cool before splitting into valves. Spread whipped cream on base and decorate with mangoes and hazelnuts. Top with next layer and spread with non-dairy cream, mangoes, and hazelnuts. Garnish with mint leaves.
