Passion Fruit Cupcakes with Coconut Frosting

The pulp of passion fruit is intensely sweet-and-sour and has a fruity, exotic taste with hints of citrus and flowers. In this recipe, rich vanilla-scented cupcakes are filled with a sunny-colored passion fruit curd and are finished with a sweet coconut frosting that pairs perfectly with their tropical flavor.

Tasty, but I tweaked it a little
April 24, 2012
These were tasty cupcakes. I made a few tweaks to them though. The curd filling wasn't nearly enough, so I made a second batch using the fresh passion fruit I have growing in my backyard. I used used Coco Loco for the coconut milk because I felt the extract tasted fake, and I topped the cuppies with sweetened toasted coconut and a tiny piece of kiwi cut into a pie wedge shape.
Pros: Easy, Adaptable
Cons: coconut extract tastes fake

Delicious--with modifications
July 10, 2011
So I had every intention of following the recipe completely. Alas, could not find passion fruit at my local grocery store, nor coconut extract. And I didn't allow enough time for the curd to cool. BUT, what I did instead worked and I got rave reviews. I used fresh mango for the passionfruit, added a bit of lemon juice and cooked the fruit as called for, but a bit longer to soften the mango. When I cooled it, I put it over an ice bowl, but still found it wasn't set enough to use for the filling. That's ok--instead used the pulpy bits of the mango. Used toasted coconut instead of chopped macadamia nuts and it was fabulous. Will definitely make this again!
Pros: Kid-Friendly, Adaptable, Impressive, Will Make Again
Cons: Lengthy
