    What a refreshing, innovative and flavorful cake!
    We celebrated my husband and son’s birthday and made this with gluten free self raising flour. What a hit! The consistency was divine, the granadilla glaze, lime zest and cottage cheese was such a beautiful combination.

    Could we post a picture?

    Tried this granadilla cake recipe did not turn out well at all. It was dry and the taste was bad. Only change I made was using 3/4 of a cup of sugar instead of a cup. I bake regularly and know what causes issues in cakes. I was very concerned about the consistency of the batter. I added additional yogurt it was still dry and tasteless. Pity as I was hoping with all the granadilla fruit that I have it would be nice to make this cake. Complete failure unfortunately. I think the wet to dry ingredient ratio is incorrect.
