Chocolate and Passion Fruit Semolina Cake -All Things Baked - Product Review

Chocolate and Passion Fruit Semolina cake | How to make chocolate and passion fruit semolina cake, basically heaven on a plate and each crumb of this cake tastes divine! The rich and decadent chocolate cake, dressed up with vegan smooth and silky dark chocolate ganache and it's top dripping with juicy and exotic passion fruit coulis which creates a 'self-saucing' element. This delicious and indulgence cake is totally dairy and egg free thus it's suitable for vegan. 


Chocolate cake is tasty as it is, but you can make it even more scrumptious by the addition of a layer of passion fruit puree to undercut the richness and it also balances the sweetness. Finish your next family get together or a special occasion such as Father's day with this ultimate dessert, and just be warned this sumptuous-looking dessert will make you and your guests swoon over and maybe one slice is never enough.






It's not that I am very good in baking, past few years I have not baked much, a couple of birthday cakes here and there and that's it, Somehow I did lose interest in baking, no idea, can't pinpoint any particular reason for it. I have everything required for baking, still, that enthusiasm and also the inspiration has been missing.

I immediately got encouraged putting to the use this fantastic wooden baking box, and baked exotic Mango, Coconut and Lime Loaf Cake and this an easy one-bowl Chocolate and Passion fruit Semolina cake, and this time I prepared ganache too :) now that's a lot of improvement in my baking thoughts and skills. This cake turned out smashingly good, moist and luscious. It was baked to perfection, risen so well and the centre part did not collapse.  That same day I had to bake another one as the first one got gobbled up by us, including me who doesn't even like chocolate half the time, before even I could take pictures :) Because I baked second time on the same day that means I could whip up this cake in no time, it's a straightforward recipe. This Chocolate and Passion fruit semolina cake is heaven for chocolate lovers. This recipe is a keeper!



Notes:-
Instead of coconut oil use any flavourless oil.
Don't have coconut milk? use any other nut milk such as almond or hazelnut.
Want to make just an eggless cake? use normal dairy products instead.

  23. comment disappeared so I'm carrying on ... Passion fruit was never something we had growing up so I always think of it as ultra exotic. I think we all have dips with our baking passion - I do love it but don't bake nearly as often as I used to. Life sort of gets in the way.
