Vanilla Squares with passionfruit icing – the great icing debate

Wednesday morning tea platter was by special request – vanilla squares with passionfruit icing.

The dilemma (something akin to the chewy or crispy Anzac debate) – passionfruit pips in the icing OR not?

Easily fixed, double the mixture, make two batches, one of each.

Not so easily executed with the quantity of custard needing to be cooked in a large jam pan. I had to call Robert inside to stir it with a strong arm and mega-whisk to stop lumps forming. (The colour of the custard is courtesy of our chooks’ eggs).

All done in time, though the custard was still warm so a bit hard to cut into squares and the icing still a little soft. No complaints from those at the morning tea though.

So which one proved to be most popular? Pips or no pips icing? The first one. Just a little left over of the other.
