Well, I made the passionfruit slice in the end, went and bought a tin of C milk, didnt read recipe properly and tipped the whole tin into the pot to heat then realised it said 1/2! so I reduced the amount of the butter and iced with a lemon and passionfruit butter icing... it is sooooo moorish - I have had two peices so far and dont think it will last more than a few days, so thanks for the recipe pam. delilah I will definately add this one to the regulars. Next time might try the cupcakes but dont think cupcakes keep fresh very long?
