Recipe For Granadilla Cake

Maxine was still a puppy when we moved into a house a block from the beach in Gordons Bay. The house was run down and neglected, but part of the lack of attention had resulted in a wild granadilla vine at the bottom of the garden. We did not get to eat many of the fruit from the passionflower plant, as Maxine developed a taste for them. If she could not open them herself she would bring the treat she had picked for me to open and spoon feed her. She still has this love and to date we have not seen one granadilla from our vine at home. I know there is fruit as I have seen the flowers and the green start to what Maxine considers hers. So, when I want granadilla’s I buy them. I decided to use them instead of milk to make a cake, and the taste was extremely refreshing – and no, Maxine did not get a taste.

  2. Hi – I live here in Zimbabwe and vanilla pods are hard to come by let alone vanilla puree. What can I use instead? Thx 🙂

    1. HI Justine! Personally, I don’t think anything beats vanilla! Can I post you some?? I would just leave out the vanilla extract and if you want to ‘scent’ a cake then use a few drops of pure essential oil if you find that easier to get hold of 🙂 Thanks for visiting!

  3. I’m always amazed at what some dogs eat! My grandparents has a prolific granadilla and my Gran used to make litres of homemade granadilla juice as well as a simple stunning cake. Her piece de resistance however was her granadilla pavlova.

  4. Tandy! I love the idea of your Maxi Dog claiming the granadillas for herself. And the cake looks fabulous as well.
