Passionfruit Tart is for dessert and it is delicious. Golden crisp puff pastry, fresh whipped cream, topped with ripe and juicy passionfruit!
Using Passionfruit to Make a Tart
One of my friends messaged me the other day to see if I wanted some fresh passionfruit. 'Boy, do I ever, was my reply!!' I LOVE passionfruit. It is sweet, it is pretty and it tastes AMAZING!
This passionfruit tart is the easiest dessert you will ever make!
If you are having last minute guests around and find yourself in a pickle as you are out of ideas of what to make, then grab these 3 ingredients and whip up this dessert!
How to use Passionfruit to Make a Quick Dessert
Sometimes you might come across a bag of beautiful fresh ripe passionfruit and want to turn that into a dessert but you don't want to spend hours in the kitchen. For this recipe, it is as easy and letting your pastry thaw for a little bit, cook it the oven until it turns a lovely shade of golden yellow and then topping it with the freshness of the cream and passionfruit.
The juice from the passionfruit doubles as our 'syrup' so you don't need extra ingredients for this Passionfruit Tart to taste fantastic!
How to Prepare Pastry to Make a Tart
The pastry needs to thaw a little, then you score a border, prick it so it won't rise too much when it is cooking and brush it with the egg.
You can think of your tart as you own canvas and work of art!
Vegan if you choose
This recipe has the option of a VEGAN version as you can substitute coconut cream for dairy cream and use store bought vegan puff pasty. That is all you need to do to turn this non-vegan dessert into a vegan dessert which I know my vegan readers will love!!
Buy it, don't make it
If you have been keeping up with my recipes on Sweet Caramel Sunday, you will know that I LOVE using puff pastry as it is easy and convenient. I recommend you do the same. The beauty of this tart is in its simplicity and if you decided to make your own pastry, you will be adding time and labour to the dessert, which is not necessary.
You can have a different tart for each different occasion!

Our therapy appointment
The smell of the passionfruit will awaken your senses as you indulge in their fragrance when you cut them. That for me is the most therapeutic part of this recipe. Whipping the cream is a fun and relaxing task and your 1st bite of the tart will allow your senses to help you drift away!
You can prepare the cream ahead of time, by whipping it and storing it in a sealed container until you are ready to top the pastry
I recommend you put some good music on, swap into some comfy clothes, turn your phone off and rock on out to making this dish as you relax and enjoy being creative and making beautiful food.
