Last day of my passionfruit week is here. I really hope that you’ve found some inspiration for the use of passionfruit. I brought you some classics, such as flummery, and something fusion like, such as passionfruit viniagrette. But I thought that I’ll finish this week of with something I love – cupcakes! Passionfruit cupcakes with a passionfruit buttercream frosting. Sounds delicious? I know! And they are! They’re fresh and has a great texture. 
I decided, since Easter’s coming up, that I’d decorate them Easter style. So I colored the buttercream green and piped it to the cupcakes and used some sugar flowers for decoration. The soil is oreos that I’ve crushed. And finally I’ve made the bunny in fondant. Theese cupcakes will look great as a centrepiece during your Easter celebration, or you can give them away as an Easter gift. 

Ingredients:
12-20 cupcakes (depending on the size of you cases)
190 g unsalted butter (room temperature)
1 cup caster sugar
3 eggs (room temperature)
1 lemon (just the rind)
10 passionfruits (use the pulp)
2/3 cup milk
2 1/2 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda

Frosting:
225 g unsalted butter (room temperature)
400 g confectioners sugar
1 dl passionfruit curd (or to taste)

Method
Preheat your oven to 180c.
Line your cupcake tray and set aside. Combine flour, baking soda and baking powder in a bowl. Set aside.
Beat sugar and butter until it’s pale. Then, add one egg at a time. Mix thoroughly between each egg. Add lemon rind, passionfruit, milk and flourmix. Beat this on low until just combined.
Fill your cupcake cases 2/3 and cook for 15-25 minutes (middle shelf) or until a toothpick comes out clean. (The time depends on your oven and size of the cupcakes) Let them cool for 10 minutes in the tray and the let them cool completely on a wire rack.

For the frosting; beat the butter in a stand mixer for 5 minutes, or until it’s pale and light. Slowly add the confectioners sugar and beat on medium speed to a smooth and fluffy frosting. Add the curd and beat until it’s all well combined.
Spread or pipe the frosting on to your cupcakes.
Now, you can serve them as they are (with a little drizzle of fresh passionfruit pulp over) or you can decorate them as you want. Delicious!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this week of passion here at delliedelicious.com! There will be more themed weeks since this was a sucess so stay tuned!
