white chocolate + passionfruit muffins

I think I may have just found myself a new favourite muffin recipe that's tasty and super easy to make.

These white chocolate and passionfruit muffins are moist, sweet and are delicately passionfruity. I made two separate batches of these within a week and both times the muffins were devoured within minutes. Or was it seconds? I don't know. They just disappeared too quickly. Maybe it would be most accurate to say that they vanished at the speed of light. Yeah, I think that's what happened.

These are very sweet and sticky so I made mine into medium-sized muffins and would definitely not go any bigger than that. They're just perfect.

White Chocolate & Passionfruit Muffins
makes 18 medium-sized muffins

2 cups self-raising flour, sifted
1/3 cup caster sugar
100g white chocolate, chopped
125g butter, melted, cooled
2/3 cup milk
2 eggs, lightly whisked
3/4 cup passionfruit pulp
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Passionfruit icing
1 1/4 cups pure icing sugar
2 tablespoons passionfruit pulp

Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners.
Combine flour, sugar and chocolate in a bowl. Make a well in the centre.
Whisk butter, milk, egg, passionfruit and vanilla in a jug. Pour into well. Gently fold until just combined. 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 before turning onto a wire rack to cool.
Make passionfruit icing: Stir icing sugar and passionfruit in a bowl until smooth. Spoon over muffins and allow to set.


  1. These look beautiful and so delicious!

  2. This is rather exciting as we always have passionfruit growing, but are not sure how to use it :) Thank you.
