  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup passion fruit pulp (from about 8 passion fruits)
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Coconut Cream Frosting:

  • 1 can (14 oz) coconut cream, chilled in the refrigerator overnight
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat and Prepare:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and line an 8-inch round cake tin with parchment paper.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients:
    • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, almond meal, desiccated coconut, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Combine Wet Ingredients:
    • In a separate bowl, combine passion fruit pulp, melted coconut oil, coconut milk, vanilla extract, and apple cider vinegar.
  4. Mix Batter:
    • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  5. Bake:
    • Pour the batter into the prepared cake tin and smooth the top with a spatula. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Cool:
    • Allow the cake to cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Coconut Cream Frosting:

  1. Prepare Coconut Cream:
    • Open the can of chilled coconut cream and scoop out the thick cream from the top, leaving the liquid behind.
  2. Whip Frosting:
    • Place the coconut cream in a mixing bowl and add powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Whip the mixture using a hand mixer or stand mixer until light and fluffy.
  3. Frost the Cake:
    • Once the cake is completely cooled, spread the coconut cream frosting over the top.
