Remember when I shared my Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake with Passion Fruit Curd recipe and I said I would have another recipe developed around passion fruit? Well today is the day that you’re going to wish you ordered passion fruit puree from Tastes of Aloha, and if you already did then you are in LUCK because I am sharing my Lilikoi Sunshine Cake recipe with you this morning. And if you didn’t head to Tastes of Aloha to order some and use my discount code: shaemakes to get free shipping! This cake looks and tastes just like its named, like SUNSHINE! The bright yellow hue comes from the passion fruit puree and the yellow cake mix.
This cake, much like my Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake, uses the method of doctoring up a cake mix to make it extra easy to throw together last minute. Yellow cake mix, passion fruit puree, pudding mix and sour cream are the key ingredients in the base of this cake. What really makes this cake over the top delicious however, is the passion fruit glaze that gets poured all over the top of the cake right when it comes out of the oven, soaking into all the little nooks and crannies so that you get that passion fruit flavor in every single bite. Don’t let this cakes simple look fool you, it is full of flavor and doesn’t need one ounce of frosting, the glaze is all it needs!
Tips & Tricks:
- I prefer to use Pilsbury or Duncan Hines cake mix, but any cake mix brand will do!
- You can substitute the passion fruit entirely in this cake and use lemon juice instead for a Lemon Sunshine Cake
- You can switch out the pudding mix flavor for vanilla, french vanilla, white chocolate or cheesecake, depending on what’s available at your local grocery store or in your pantry!
- If you want to spice up the looks of the cake a little bit, you can serve each slice with a dollop of whipped cream!
