Lemon Passionfruit loaf (Cake de maracuya y limón)

Absolutely we loved these little loaf cakes with passion fruit!
 I was cleaning the fridge and discover I had two frozen bags with passion fruit.
(And always I have passion fruit's recipes )
 You can bake with frozen or fresh passion fruit.
If you buy fresh passion fruit select ones withwrinkled skinas they are the ripest.
I love how smell passion fruit ...

Cake de maracuya

Este cake de maracuya es absolutamente delicioso y super fácil.
Se puede ocupar maracuyá congelada (en supermercxados) o natural.

Lo hice en tres moldes pequeños pero se puede usar uno solo de un largo aproximado de 20 cm.
Solo tener en cuenta que cuando se usan moldes pequeños  la coccion es más rápida. 


1 cucharadita de ralladura de limón
125 gramos de mantequilla temperatura ambiente
1 taza de azúcar en polvo
2 tazas de harina sin polvos de hornear
2 cucharaditas polvos de hornear


1/4 taza de azucar glass 
jugo de limon 
1 maracuya
o 2 cucharadas de maracuyá congelado


Precalentar el horno a 180°c y preparar el molde de 20 cm o tres moldes pequeños.
Hacer un batido cremoso con la mantequilla, azucar y ralladura de limon.
Agregar los huevos de a uno batiendo cada vez.

Agregar la harina, polvos de hornear y crema o yogurt.
Vaciar este batido a un molde de 20 cm o tres pequeños.
Hornear por 40 minutos o hasta que al insertar un palito salga seco.

Glaze de maracuya

En una olla pequeña mezclar y calentar el maracuyá, azucar y limon.
Revolver hasta que hierva un poco y despues dejar enfriar.
Cuando este frio y se retiren los cakes del horno bañar con este glaze los queques y dejar reposar antes de cortar.
