You may wonder what is *Passion Fruit, “Parchita” or “Maracuya” (name changes from country to country) and where to buy it. Most Spanish markets have it in the frozen section. It tastes similar to key lime, but far more exotic.
When I make “Esponjado” (means fluffy in Spanish) I think of my mother who died back in the early 90’s. She was not much of a cook, but loved making this easy desert as it was very tasty for us. Always looked forward to have her make things like these as she was not in the kitchen very often. It can be used to fill a pie with a graham cracker crust. Yummy!
