Homemade Passionfruit Curd and Lemon Cake

Beautifully simple and wonderfully delicious, this cake makes the best of the season from the garden.  The curd I made myself and the lemons are ripe and positively falling from the tree.  Eat and celebrate with this cake amount friends.  From my table to yours, enjoy xoxo



  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 2 cup self raising flour
  • 2 cup raw sugar

  • 6 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • zest of 2 lemon
  • 1 cup passionfruit curd



Preheat oven to 170C. Combine flour and sugar.


Add the zest of the lemons, ensuring they are mixed through and coated in flour.

Grease and line an 8 inch round cake tin with baking paper. Spoon into the tin.


Top with passionfruit curd and gently using a spoon, swirl into the batter.


Bake in pre heated oven for approximately 90 minutes until golden and a skewer comes out clean.

Allow to cool on a cake rack.


Serve warm with extra dollops of passionfruit curd.  Or alternatively you could make icing with any left over passionfruit as I did.
