That is it! I’m getting some passion fruit for making another danish and this incredible passion fruit sidecar I had a bar in NYC! But it was your danish that pushed me over the edge.

Mmmmm…passionfruit. Your braid looks delicious. And, you’re right: what’s a million calories between friends?

Good choice on the filling. I may just have to try this combo out next time I’m in the mood to make some danish.

And look at how flaky your danish turned out! – I’m seriously jealous. 🙂

I always thought I loved lemon curd, that is until I tried passion fruit curd. Yum! Love it, its great in cheesecake as well.
Beautiful braid!

A beautiful braid! Freezing the dough longer sounds like the right thing – I had trouble with mine.

Beautiful braid, and the passionfruit curd sounds amazing. I’m totally in agreement with you…I can’t tell you how bad danishes I’ve tasted in my lifetime…this recipe made me appreciate this pastry for the very first time.

Everything is better with cream cheese filling or frosting, right? You mean there are calories in it? =) Your braid looks wonderful.

Your braid looks really delicious. I so totally agree with you about American Danishes. Since childhood I’ve disliked them, even their smell. Thanks so much for the “curd tip”. I’m now intrigued about passion fruit, something I’ve never handled let alone eaten.

Calories between friends and hips you mean ;))
This was really wonderful! Love your passion fruit and the technique! Endless possibilities . . . must try a savory. Like chicken sausage & spinach maybe even some feta.

OMG…passionfruit curd is like heaven on a spoon!!! What a fabulous idea! Thanks for the tips on curd making too, I’ve got Rose’s book, but I’ve not even begun to scratch the surface yet. Next time try it with cream cheese, you won’t be sorry!

great job w/the challenge. i love passionfruit.

[…] revisited the Danish dough by Sherry Yard from a Daring Bakers Challenge earlier this year, and it worked out wonderfully.  My braid that time turned out looking a lot better than my braid […]

I’m new to your blog and may be blind but I cannot actually see the recipes you used. I was keen to try the passionfruit curd recipe and method that you used.
