  • 60ml (1/4 cup) coconut milk (Asia at Home brand)
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) passionfruit pulp
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

    To make the coconut passionfruit sauce, place coconut milk, passionfruit pulp, brown sugar and lemon juice in a small bowl. Use a fork to whisk until the mixture is well combined and the sugar dissolves. Cover and set aside.

  • Step 4
    Place 1 rice paper sheet in a large, shallow dish of warm water for 30 seconds to soften. Dry with paper towel and transfer to a clean work surface. Spread 1 tablespoon of the cake crumbs over the rice paper sheet, leaving a 5cm border. Place 1 teaspoon of cream mixture in the centre and use the back of a spoon to spread to a 7cm-long strip. Top with 1 piece of carambola, 1 piece of banana and 3 pieces of jackfruit. Fold in the sides and roll to enclose filling. Place on a plate and cover with damp paper towel. Repeat with remaining rice paper sheets, sponge crumbs, cream mixture and fruit.

    Place the cream, icing sugar and vanilla seeds (discarding pod) in a bowl and whip until stiff peaks form. Fold through mascarpone, and set aside.

    Spoon one-third of the berries into the lined basin, then cover with half the mascarpone mixture. Repeat with half the remaining berries, followed by remaining mascarpone mixture and berries. Dip remaining sponge fingers in berry liquid and cover pudding completely, filling any gaps with trimmings. Reserve any remaining berry liquid.
