Passion Fruit Cupcakes

IMG_8692

Passion fruit is one of my favourite fruits and I think always tastes amazing in deserts, so I thought I would experiment by putting them into a cupcake. I used a basic cupcake recipe and scooped out the passionfruit pulp as well as using the juice. I then made a coconut buttercream icing to give it that extra exotic feel.

Ingredients

3 Passion Fruit
1 Egg
4 oz caster sugar
4 oz Butter
4 oz Self raising flour
1 tsp Vanilla essence
Icing Sugar
desiccated coconut

Method
1. Cream together the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl
2. Slice the passion fruits in half and scoop out the insides.
3. Add the passion fruit pulp and juice to the mixture along with the vanilla essence.
4. Mix in the flour and baking powder.
5. Bake until brown in the oven at 180 C
6. For the icing beat the butter until creamy, then add the icing sugar and coconut.
7. Once the cupcakes have cooled, spread the icing onto the cakes.

You may not wish to have the seeds in your cakes, if so put the pulp into a strainer so that you still get all of the lovely flavour. Personally I like it as it adds an interesting texture to the bite.
