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!
- 1 cup self raising flour
- 1/2 cup caster sugar
- 115 g butter melted
- 1 egg
- 1 400 g can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 250 g Nestle reduced cream
- 3 lemons juiced
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup caster sugar
- 2 heaped tbsp custard power mixed with 1/2 cup water
- 4 passionfruit
- Mix together ingredients and press into a 30cm fluted tart tin or a rectangular slice tin.
- Bake for 10 mins on 180°C or until golden brown.
- Allow to cool.
- Combine all ingredients together and beat until slightly thickened.
- Pour over cooled base and put in the fridge to set.
- Stir water, caster sugar and custard power disolved into water in a saucepan over low heat until thickened.
- Allow mixture to cool before adding the pulp of the passionfruit.
- Pour passionfruit mixture over the cream filling and put back in the fridge to set (I like to let mine set over night before slicing).
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 :)
condensed milk omg yes! that looks and sounds absolutely delish!
Thanks Suze! Anything featuring condensed milk is a winner in my books :D
If you make steamed pudding I will love you more than anything INCLUDING potatoes and cheese.
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 :)
Yum! I love stealing my grandmother’s recipes hehe :) This looks great!
They are the best! And the recipes are usually so simple and fuss-free which I love
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!)
What a clever fox you are, it looks a-ma-zing!!
Why thank you Tara! :)
Wow this is just gorgeous! I love everything – the typed recipe, the photography, and PASSIONFRUIT!
Many thanks Chanel, and yes everything is better with PASSIONFRUIT! :D
Oh wow, that looks absolutely perfect and I can almost smell the fragrant passion fruit emanating from my screen
Every time I opened the fridge door, the smell of passionfruit wafted out. It was wonderful!
