Passionfruit muffins with glace icing

By PaisleyJade - Tuesday, March 17, 2009

The season for passionfruit is here! These muffins are delicious. I iced mine while they were still warm, hence the runny icing... but they still tasted just as good.

Note: This recipe requires about 6 passionfruit.

2 cups self-rising flour
2/3 cup caster sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup (60g) butter, melted
1/2 cup passionfruit pulp

Passionfruit Glace Icing Ingredients
1 cup icing sugar
3/4 oz (20g) butter, melted
1-2 tablespoons passionfruit pulp

Preheat oven to 200 deg C. Grease twelve standard muffin cups or line them with parchment paper cases.

In a large mixing bowl, sift the flour. Stir through the sugar. Make a well in the centre.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the eggs, milk, butter, and the 1/2 cup passionfruit pulp. Add all at once to the flour mixture and stir just until moistened (the batter should be lumpy).

Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling them 2/3 full. Bake until golden brown, 15-20 minutes. Cool in pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack.

For the icing, sift the confectioners' sugar into a small bowl. Add the 3/4 oz melted butter and enough of the passionfruit pulp to mix to a smooth and spreadable consistency. Spread the icing over the cooled muffins and allow to set before serving.
