Passionfruit and Greek yogurt cake (Cake de maracuya y yogurt griego)

Hello to all again with much  love.
The weather lowering a bit the heat which is very nice, and  last Saturday we went to the beach .
I think about three years I didn't go to the beach and It was beautiful. (We went only by the day)
Valparaiso and Viña del Mar)

In the evenings I already feel that autumn is coming (for many of you the Spring)
It refreshes a lot at night!
A few days ago I made this cake and many know that one of my favorite fruits is  passionfruit   (aka maracuya).

As always you can use fresh or frozen passionfruit. I always have frozen. When you buy fresh passionfruit it ripens very quickly!
If you find frozen passionfruit , the Peruvian is so good.
