Lemon and Polenta Bundt Cake with Passionfruit Icing Recipe

Serves 8-10


450g unsalted butter

450g caster sugar

6 eggs

450g almond meal

225g fine polenta

zest of 4 lemons 

juice of 1 lemon

400g ricotta

4 cups icing sugar 

2 tbsp passionfruit pulp


Preheat oven to 160°C. Place butter and caster sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat for 8-10 minutes, or until light and creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Fold in almond meal, then add polenta, lemon zest and juice, and ricotta; stir until just combined. Spoon into a well-greased 10-cup-capacity bundt tin and bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the cake comes out clean.

Let cool in tin for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Place icing sugar in a large bowl, add 2 tablespoons boiling water and passionfruit pulp, and stir until combined. Spoon over cake and serve.
