Peel and slice pears, drain raspberries if tinned, and scoop out passion fruit. Place fruit in large trifle bowl and add an ample quantity of sherry. Leave for twenty-four hours to soak in the refrigerator.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and about 2 T of flour and beat. Fold in rest of flour. Bake in 7-inch square tin for 25-30 mins until brown. Let cool. Slice into fingers and arrange on top of fruit. More sherry may be added at this point.
