Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4.
Oil and line the bases of 3 x 20cm
sandwich tins with baking parchment.
Mix the flour, cinnamon, baking powder,
half the sugar and the coconut in a large
mixing bowl. In another bowl mix the
beaten whole eggs, mashed bananas,
grated carrot, drained crushed pineapple,
milk and oil. Beat the egg whites until
stiff, then add the remaining sugar and
beat until stiff and shiny again.
Stir the wet mixture into the dry until
smooth and lump-free, then using a
large metal spoon or spatula, fold in
the egg white mixture. Divide evenly
between the tins and bake for 25 mins
until risen and a skewer comes out
clean. You might need to swap the
position of the tins after 20 mins.
For the drizzle, scoop out the passion fruit
pulp into a small pan. Add the pineapple
juice and caster sugar and heat until
bubbling, then bubble until syrupy. For
the icing, beat the cheese and butter
until lump-free, then beat in icing sugar
and vanilla. Chill until ready to assemble.
Poke the cakes all over with a skewer,
drizzle over most of the passion syrup,
then cool. Once cool, spread the icing
over two of the sponges. Sandwich
together and top with the third, un-iced,
sponge. Drizzle over the remaining syrup.
