Passion fruit and chocolate bundt cake (Cake de maracuya con chocolate)








I have always had adoration for passionfruit, (aka maracuya) that is, if I see, I have to buy  and make desserts, juices, cakes, and that delicious smell is really  a wonderful fruit.

My daughter brought these maracuya with her boyfriend, he is Peruvian and he knows a lot about this so he would love this cake.
Anyway I really love this recipe!
And everyone who does not. A hug to all  and thanks by be here.
