  • 225 gm plain flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 225 gm caster sugar
  • 125 gm butter cubed

  • 1 cup passionfruit curd


  • Preheat oven to 160 degrees C. Line an 8 inch round cake tin with baking paper.
  • Add the butter to TM Bowl. Melt 3 min/Varoma/Speed 2.
  • Add the milk, lemon zest, salt, sugar and then eggs. Beat 1 min/ Speed 5.
  • Add the flour and baking powder. Combine 1 min/Speed 4.
  • Pour the cake batter into the prepared cake tin.
  • Use a teaspoon to drop passionfruit curd over the top of the cake. Take a skewer and swirl the curd gently through the batter. Do not over combine.
  • Bake in the pre-heated oven for approximately 50 minutes until golden and risen.
  • Allow to cool and serve warm with a dusting of icing sugar and an extra serving of passionfruit curd and chantilly cream.


The passionfruit curd will stay moist when the cake is cooked so when you test with a skewer ensure you test in an area without curd.

Some readers may be aware that I have been a food blogger since 2009. That’s a lot of eating, recipe development and recipe sharing! During that time I’ve gotten to know quite a lot of the long-term foodies and food bloggers. The recipe I’m sharing today comes from “The Cooks Republic”.Sneh makes the most amazing recipes and is one of the best food photographers I know.

I was looking for something special to make with the passionfruit curd I prepared last week. I remembered a delicious recipe Sneh has on her site for this passionfruit curd butter cake. The recipe wasn’t suitable for the Thermomix so I did a bit of experimenting so I could share a Thermomix version of the passionfruit curd cake.

I particularly like cakes which follow the simple “melt and mix” routine. Happily, that method worked perfectly with this cake. If you’re looking for a tasty lunch box treat, pin this for later 🙂
