Passionfruit & White Chocolate Muffins

Passionfruit and White Chocolate Muffins

I’ve got a pot of camomile tea brewing and a sweet treat ready a waiting for me.  A lovely little interlude in the making to sooth the mind after a very long week one way or another.   The tartness of the passionfruit and the sweetness of the white chocolate make this muffin recipe a divine combination good enough for any afternoon tea, or even iced and used as birthday cakes.  The biggest question I’m facing right now, is do I take them into work tomorrow to share, or keep them at home for us to gobble up over the next few days???

Passionfruit and White Chocolate Muffins

  • 1/2 cup passionfruit pulp
  • zest of 1/2 orange
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 400g Self-Raising Flour or 400g Plain Flour & 5tsp Baking Powder – sifted
  • 100g Brown sugar
  • few drops of vanilla essence
  • 150ml vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk

Pre-heat your oven to approx 200c.  Prepare your muffin tins with a spray oil.

Combine all ingredients until a smooth batter, about the consistency of yoghurt after you stir it in a tub if you are looking for a guide.   Cook for approx 20 mins or until the muffins are springy to the touch.   Eat slightly warm if desired (or you can’t wait to taste), but they are equally good to eat cold.  If you are super disciplined, muffins also freeze well and can be great lunch box treats for grown ups and children alike.

happy cooking,  Leah

    Hi there!

    These look amazing – and they’re just what I’ve been looking for, after having something similar at the National Library of Australia cafe!

    Just one question about quantities – is it 1/2 cup of passionfruit pulp, or a half passionfruit? The former seems more likely, but I thought I’d check.


    PS Sorry if you get this twice – I had some connectivity issues the first time…
