I love this recipe because it uses things that I already have in my pantry and fridge.
I made a variation from the original French, “Four-Fourths” recipe. The original calls for 4 ingredients; butter, sugar, eggs & flour. Exactly one pound of each.
While the original recipe is good I find it a bit chewy and dense for my taste. Plus it is flat, not very sweet.
I lightened it up using baking powder and enhanced the flavor with salt. I added a bit of sugar to add some sweetness and extra egg yolks to make it richer.
Finally, I wanted passion fruit, the taste of the tropics that we all love so much to be added.
The final recipe is a great pound cake that doesn’t need any frosting. A bit of powdered sugar and some fresh fruit are perfect to top it off.
