Passionfruit Slice

Approved by Rose

This is a recipe we were unable to make in the US as several of the key ingredients were not available.
The passionfruit and custard topping makes a tart and sweet taste sensation. The middle and base also complement the topping making a very tasty slice. A definite winner at parties.

1/2 cup Plain (All Purpose) flour
1/2 cup Self raising flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter (melted)

125g Copha (melted) (solidified coconut oil. Unavailable in the US.)
400g/1 tin Condensed Milk
3 teaspoons gelatine
1/2 cup lemon juice

1 1/2 tablespoons custard powder (similar to pudding - unavailable in the US)
1/4 cup castor sugar
1 1/4 cups water
1 1/2 teaspoons gelatine
1/3 cup passionfruit pulp (4) (Hard to find in the US)

• Grease 20 x 30cm (8in x 12in) pan
• Combine flour and sugar
• Stir in butter
• Press in pan
• Bake in moderate oven for 12 minutes
• Cool (man)

• Beat Copha senseless with condensed milk using electric mixer
• Dissolve gelatine in lemon juice in cup over saucepan of boiling water.
• Stir until dissolved.

This sounds delicious, Lana! I think I'll try it sometime. We live in Cincinnati where there's a huge international market, and though I haven't seen Copha I've seen coconut oil -- both in solid and liquid form. There's also Bird's custard powder. Thank you for sharing!
