I love finding new and unique products. While strolling through a new Super Wally World in my area, I was drawn to the international aisle. So many fun ingredients and foods! My eyes and stomach are screaming at the chance to partake in all the variety. To me, the real test of any international aisle excellence is the presence of peanut butter flavored "Bamba" from Israel. In a blue bag with a cartoon boy on the front, these morsels of puffed peanut butter will leave you craving for more. SOOO GOOD! This store had everything...including passion fruit pulp. So exotic, I just had to try. No idea what to do with it but no worries, the inspiration would come.
Adapted from a ricotta pound cake, I topped these individual cakes with a slightly sweetened passion fruit puree. Once the warm cakes had been covered, they transformed into more of sponge cake. Not heavy in the slightest, I could eat all of these in a sitting...but I wont, for now at least.
An experiment in baking = successful
