Liliko’i Bars / Passion Fruit Bars
(Adapted from Dana Zia)

The crust
All purpose flour - 1cup
Powdered sugar - 1/3 cups
Butter ` 1/3 cups

The filling
Eggs- 2
Sugar - 1 cup
All Purpose flour – 3 tbsp
Baking powder – 3/4 tsp
Liliko’i puree or Passion fruit puree - 1/3 cup
Powdered sugar for dusting


  • Preheat the oven to 350F (180C).
  • To prepare the crust, whisk the flour and powdered sugar together in a medium bowl.
  • Cut the butter into the flour mixture and mix with your finger tips until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  • Pat the crust mixture into a 6.5 x 4.5 inch baking pan, making sure to press the crust up the sides of the pan at least halfway.
  • Pop it into the oven to bake for 15 minutes, or until the edges just barely start to brown.
  • While the crust is baking, whisk the 2 eggs nicely.
  • Then whisk in the sugar, 1/2 cup at a time.
  • Mix well, add the flour and baking powder by sprinkling it over the egg mixture while whisking.
  • Finally mix in the liliko’i/ passion fruit puree and mixing well.
  • Pour this luminous filling into the crust and bake for an additional 30-35 minutes till the top is golden brown and when you touch the center it is firm.
  • Allow it to cool completely then set in the fridge for a couple of hours to firm up.
  • Cut into 1 inch squares or so, and dust with powdered sugar.
  • Enjoy!
