Passion Fruit Cake

I'm starting to try a number of recipes using some of the exotic fruit we have here. This one uses passion fruit pulp (seeds and all) and is not only easy to make, but delicious.

3/4 C butter softened
3/4 C sugar
1 t vanilla
1 1/2 C flour
1/3 C passion fruit pulp
2 eggs

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Beat the butter, eggs, sugar, and vanilla until creamy. Add the flour and passion fruit and mix well. Put in a greased 8 x 8 pan and bake for about 30 minutes or until comes clean with a toothpick.

Frosting: Mix together well 3/4 C of softened butter with 1 C of powdered sugar and 1/4 C passion fruit pulp.

This frosting isn't stiff, but was fantastic poured over the cake once it cooled. It's also very sweet, so this cake should serve about nine people.
