I thought I would be very clever and make something that would appeal to our more senior citizens. So I made the passionfruit sponge. Here it is on the table of other goodies at the 'spread'. (sorry about the bad photo - but it is really hard to make a table at a school morning tea attractive unless I am in charge and therefore everything would be totally OTT!!!!!)
Now to Introduce the New Addition to our Family
I must admit, I did have a little help with the sponge. My gorgeous G (husband of a very long time) gave me something for my birthday that I have been coveting for years and years - a Kitchenaid Artisan Mixer. I couldn't believe it. So, of course, showing him how much I appreciate it, I have been making everything that I can for him and the boys (whether they like it or not).
So this is, as you will now understand, why I had to make the passionfruit sponge for the seniors. It was effortless I must say - I cannot believe the difference in beating things. It does it in about half the time. As for meringues - yum - very, very quick and easy. So Tam, blue and brown will be fine!!!!
As for the sponge - it was all gone - not one little crumb - a very successful day!!!
By the way the seniors had a wonderful time with their grandkids - which is really why we had this wonderful day.
