    Very straightforward and delicious result! Could also try a lemon curd and orange cake when there are no passionfruit to be had. As per another reviewer I cut the pith off my remaining half and orange, blended it and added it to the mix also.
    I topped with a passionfruit glaze (two passionfruit, 2 tablespoons of golden syrup and a tablespoon of sugar, boiled until reduced slightly) just for some extra sweet passionfruit deliciousness.

    Took the liberty of mixing on reverse when I made this cake.  Used the  rest of the orange for the cake mix  that I took the 30g of juice from.  It worked out really well.  A very beautiful and moist cake.

    Do you use the orange, or just the rind?
