I can't  believe we're  we are going  to finish March! 
The days follow each other very fast. 
There is always something to be done. I have this post almost ready 3 days ago. Well here goes now.
I love fruits on desserts. This is with pear and it is delicious.

I hope to do something for Easter (of course now I realized that it is very soon!)

Passionfruit Tea cake (cake de maracuya)

Sometimes I think  I am different than others at my blog and  kitchen in how I choose my recipes..

 I usually cook or bake what the spirit asks me so  sometimes I remember something or read a magazine or a book and voila!

This time it was passionfruit, I wanted to eat passionfruit and I found this cake that I liked so much with that layer of passion fruit and sugar and I did it last night.

In the morning the photos and now the post.
I even bought figs to make a cake that I have pending but it was passionfruit. that as I said can be frozen or fruit (Peru exports a lot of passion fruit) I always have frozen maracuya and berries. All year. You can make ice creams, mousses, cakes, muffins, whatever you want, what more precious fruit.
