When I see pineapple, I immediately thought about paradise, especially Hawaii.

I have been so many beautiful places on Earth such as Bora Bora, Maldives but Hawaii will always has a special place in my heart. I love the culture, people, beaches and of course food.

I am so jealous at my Mom’s garden, she has passion fruit tree. I love to add it to my mix drink, sparkling soda or simply eat it straight from the spoon.

Today, I want to add a hint of passion fruit on my pineapple cake. This bread is so delightful and will take you back to Hawaii (well, at least in spirit).

Let’s get baking!
