My passionfruits were fairly small but full, if using larger ones, use only 3-4.

    These are currently in the oven. I don't like passionfruit and have an abundance of them, so thought I'd make cupcakes for the kids. I couldn't help myself and licked the bowl......clean!!!! Yummo! Sorry kids!

    Chenoa this recipe is fantastic! My husband and I aren't massive passionfruit fans but these cupcakes had a really nice balance of flavours and weren't too passionfruity.

    The only change I made was to seive the passionfruit pulp so the seeds were removed.

    Super yummy recipe which I will be sharing for sure!
