As we all know, it was Mother’s Day this past Sunday. Did you do anything special for your mother? I took the Friday off work and travelled 8 hours on a bus to visit home and surprise Mum. I couldn’t … Continue reading →

One of the first things that comes to mind, without fail, whenever I think about passionfruit… though it has very little to do with the rest of this post. However, it is quite possible that if you make this for someone special to you, you may just be thanked with a pash. And who can complain with that?
Pashes aside, I have to say that personally I am not the biggest fan of passionfruit that you will find, but even I can go so far as to say that it is one of the quintessential flavours of summer.
So the other day I realised that it was my ‘blogiversary’ and I thought to myself, “You know what this calls for? A double layer white chocolate mud cake with blackberry buttercream frosting.” Only it was more like “Mud cake!” because I was much too excited to get that entire sentence out.
When I was half the size and with a fraction of the freckles I proudly wear now, I thought cheesecake was an abhorrent idea. Although I had a sweet tooth that could rival anyone with a stomach capacity three times the size of mine, cheesecake was a notion that I simply would not tolerate.
As you can see, this cake is not a lie. Although, for all you know, to the left is just a plate of delicious white chocolate frosting that just so happens to look like cake… but there is cake underneath it all, I promise. Two layers, even!
I was so eager / nervous to dish the cake out to my lovely new colleagues that I forgot to take a picture of the beautiful red inside. Whoops! But that just means I get to make another one tomorrow, right?
I have always been a fan of short blog posts. Personally, whenever I am looking for a recipe I am usually on a mission – T-Minus x amount of minutes until the perfect recipe is found.
I favour the blogs that cut to the chase and give me the goods. Which is not to say I do not appreciate what is written, or the time it took, I am just likely to hit ‘back’ if I have to scroll for what feels like an eternity down the page.
