Passionfruit Slice

I love recipes passed down from generation to generation and was recently sent this beautiful old recipe for passionfruit slice by a friend from his Mum. Since most of my recipes are now printed off from the internet and then hastily stuffed in my binder folder, I love coming across old faded and hand typed recipes such as this.

I made a few slight adjustments to this recipe but it was pretty much perfect as is (and oh so easy). Enjoy!

Do you have a favourite recipe passed down through your family? I am desperate to get my hands on my late Grandma’s famous steamed golden syrup pudding!

    :O your photos are stunning. Older + loved recipes like that are so exciting to come by, even all the little stains on that page have me swooning! I’m on a condensed milk high at the moment, so, I totally want to try that cream filling real soon. Aww yeah.

      Thank you and yes the stains are great! It looks like a well-loved recipe. I think condensed milk has to be one of the best ingredients EVER and yes sometimes I just suck it out of the tube hehe :)

      Oh my goodness, this is an opportunity that can’t be missed as I know how much you love potato and cheese! I will harass Dad for the recipe :)

    Hey Swah the slice looks fantastic! My mum would be proud.

    Did you have any troubles getting the reduced cream? I couldn’t find it when I made it so I used some plain yogurt mixed with vanilla extract and caster sugar.

      Thank you and I am glad I made your mama proud! Fortunately I had no trouble getting the reduced cream from World Square Coles (although funnily enough they had no lemons so I had to go on a wild goose chase around Chinatown for them). However I think your idea of substituting plain yoghurt sounds great (and a little healthier!)
