Passionfruit Slice and My Holiday

Going on holidays is always fun. The excitement builds up when you start to pack and you start to look forward to some time away from reality. I recently went to Hamilton Island with some family for a little bit of a break. I haven’t been on a holiday with family in a really long time. I knew this was going to be different.

My first impression of Hamilton Island was how small it was. The people are nice and it was absolute paradise. The weather was gorgeous, the beach was beautiful and the golf buggy was fun to drive.

I also realised how lucky we are to have such a beautiful country. White haven beach was stunning and not to mention the fish and the coral.

Passionfruit is one of my favourite fruits. Each one is like a surprise. You just don’t know if you will get one that’s sweet or extremely sour. When I saw this recipe, it reminded me of our holiday away. It took me back to those hot summer days by the pool with some of the most important people in my life.

Passionfruit Slice


1 cup self raising flour
1 cup desiccated coconut
½ cup caster sugar
125g butter melted

1 tin of condensed milk
1 large tin of passionfruit pulp
1. In a bowl combine flour, coconut, sugar and melted butter. Mix this well and press into a tin. Bake at 180C for 15 minutes or until slightly brown.
2. In a separate bowl mix the passionfruit pulp and condensed milk together.
3. Pour the topping over the top of the warm base and put this back into the oven for a further 10 minutes at 100C.

Cool before cutting into squares.

This slice is perfect for a summers day. Its tangy and sweet and 1 slice is not enough.

The first photograph is a stunning view! What better way to remember such a lovely holiday than with a delicious treat like these passion fruit slices - one would almost certainly not be enough for me!

Yum I love passionfruits and the slice looks like it's packed full of it! Lovely pictures from your holiday - that starfish is enormous!

That starfish is crazy! It's a Darth Maul starfish!

Beautiful slice. One look is not enough, so I don't think one slice would be enough either :)

The golf buggies on Hamilton Is are so fun to drive, aren't they? Lovely passionfruit slice - I haven't had one for ages, so I might try your recipe.

Now you make me want to go for holiday too. I'm really missing the sun badly. Looking at your passionfruit slice does help to cheer me. Looks delicious.

Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog to comment on the Reuben Dip and the Super Bowl. If you're a closet American, I'm a closet Australian, because I am COMPLETELY addicted to flat whites, which we don't have here. I make them every day at home. Yes, I got it bad! I met Trissa when I was there in December. Nice to know so many nice Filipinas around the world.

Family holidays are always fun...and with a view like that, I'm pretty sure you had a wonderful time bonding.
WE don't have passionfruit here although I always love the passionfruit juice. I always have a ready stock of that just like I have orange juice hehe! But I'm intrigued by your passionfruit slice... i want to have one now kat!

Not a fan of passionfruit but Hamilton Island looks awesome!!! Hope you escaped the storms!

Hamilton Island is cute =) I remember driving around in a little buggie. My friend and I spent about a week there and it rained half the time. Lovely place though!

Nice slice too!

Looks like a wonderful holiday! I could certainly do with one right now :) Or failing that.. maybe one of those passionfruit slices!
