Orange and Passion fruit Gateau 香橙百香果蛋糕

I received few readers asking me whether they can use Golden sponge cake to decorate with whipping cream as they scare whether or this light sponge cake can accommodate the weight from the cream. To find out the answer, I decided to bake this cake again and decorate with orange and passion fruit curd which using leftover oranges that bought the other day ,and last minutes also decided to add in passion fruit which my sister sent over for me.



 
At the same time, I also can tried the lemon curd recipe from 英式柠檬蛋糕 (English Lemon Gateau) that shared by Crystal earlier. And i feel the curd is matching with golden sponge cake which both also contain butter.
 
Orange and Passion fruit curd ingredients

 
Since the orange used was sweet, so the curd taste sweet with a bit of sour taste only. I think totally use passion fruit or lemon will be better, need to try next time.


Yes, I can slice this Golden sponge cake but please handle with care..

 
I feel the curd a bit too thick, so i added more passion fruit juices, but wrong decision, resulted the curd became too runny..Anyway, I can prove that this golden sponge cake can be used to decorate with whipped cream.



Orange and Passion fruit Gateau 香橙百香果蛋糕

One golden sponge cake, refer recipe here

Orange and Passion fruit curd
2 eggs (A size)
60g caster sugar
40ml orange juices
35g passion fruit flesh
1/2tsp orange zest
45g butter

Method

  1. Mix all ingredients together except butter, stir well.
  2. Cook the ingredients over a pot of simmering water, stir it all the time till fluffy.
  3. Add in butter, cook till melt and mix well. Set aside to cool. If you feel the curd is thick, then you can add the extra passion fruit juices to adjust the thickness.
  4. Decorate sponge cake with whipping cream (non-dairy), and pour the orange and passion fruit curd on top. Refrigerate before serve.
Modified the curd recipe from Crystal ‘s English Lemon Gateau, original lemon juices used is 65g, by Sonia aka Nasi Lemak Lover
