Passionfruit White Chocolate Muffins

Wow so it's been over a month since I've posted on here, and NO, I haven't been SLACK... I've just been too busy with university and work and things to have any time to try any new recipes!!!  Such is life.

Anywho, we had some passion fruit to use up, courtesy of our neighbour, and no idea what to do with it.  Coincidentally, a friend of mine sent me a message on FB with this recipe (shout out to Mel! :D)  and I was like YES let's do this!  Finally got around to it tonight.  :)  Here's a pic of the pulp :)


2 cups self-raising flour, sifted
1/2 cup caster sugar
100g white chocolate chips
125g butter, melted (and cooled, but I was too impatient for this)
1/3 cup milk
2 eggs, lightly whisked
1/4 cup passion fruit pulp
1 tsp vanilla essence

Icing1 & 1/4 cups icing sugar
2 tsp hot water
1 tablespoon passion fruit pulp 

  • Preheat oven to 200°C. 
  • Lightly grease a 12-hole 1/3-cup capacity muffin pan.
  • Combine flour, sugar and chocolate in a bowl. Make a well in the centre. 
  • Whisk butter, milk, egg, passion fruit and vanilla in a jug. Pour into well. 
  • Gently fold until just combined. 
  • Three-quarter fill muffin holes with mixture. 
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. 
  • Stand in pan for 5 minutes. 
  • Turn onto a wire rack. 
  • Make passion fruit icing: Stir icing sugar, water and passion fruit in a bowl until smooth. 
  • Spoon over muffins, allowing to drizzle down sides. 
  • Allow to set. Serve.

Hmmm I'm not sure about these muffins.  They are REALLY sweet with the chocolate AND the icing - the tartness of the passion fruit is kind of lost in the mix.  I'm not the biggest passion fruit fan (when it has pips!) so the crunch was a bit disconcerting.  I mean they were nice enough, but after one, I'm kinda over it, and hoping mum and dad like them enough to eat the rest haha!
