So here is the Granadilla Cake recipe. Love this cake! Can never have enough! Enjoy!

Recipe: Granadilla Cake
This cake was in the house quite regularly. It is still a regular in my mother’s house, as well as mine. It is a wonderful combination of sweet and sour. It leaves a wonderfully fresh taste in your mouth.

“After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one’s own relatives.” Oscar Wilde

For the cake:
125g butter
1 and 1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs – separated
2 ¼ cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 fresh granadillas

For the icing:
Soft butter
Icing powder
1 fresh granadilla

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
Cream the butter, sugar and the egg yolks.
Fold in the flour, baking powder, and milk.
Beat until smooth in texture.
Add the vanilla and fresh granadillas.
Mix well.
Fold in the egg whites and bake for 25-35 minutes, depending on the size of your pan.
When done, let it cool in the pan before you take it out.
Mix the ingredients for the icing together, you can make enough to completely cover the cake, or just the top.

This cake always tastes better the next day, but don’t expect it to last that long.
