I don't make cakes very often, especially not layer cakes. I never really liked layer cakes as a kid because they were always dry, flavourless, and kind of boring. The cakes at my friends birthday parties always looked so delicious and I would always have some, but the minute the cake entered my mouth, it would suck up all the moisture, I'd be struggling to swallow it, and all I wanted was a glass of milk to wash it down. So I learned early on that cake = dry, no ifs, ands, or buts.
I have since corrected that in my own cakes, but I still prefer mousses and custards to a cake. Unless it's a mousse cake, then HELLO - that's all me.
This cake, however, is not like most cakes. This cake is moist and almost custardy in texture, then I went and put passion fruit curd in between the layers for even more custardy-ness. This cake will never dry out your mouth or have you reaching for a glass of milk. This cake is all you need.
