Passionfruit Cream Cupcakes

I adore passionfruit and I adore cupcakes so the perfect treat for me are passionfruit cream cupcakes :D. 

They are wonderful! The cake is light and spongey and the passionfruit just lets out that zingy tang to dissolve into the sweet flavour. Once dusted with icing sugar, they are thenomenal! I suggest you try these out NOW!

Passionfruit Cream Cupcakes

150g lightly salted butter, softened
150g caster sugar
3 eggs
150g self raising flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 passionfruits
150ml double cream


Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Line a 12-section muffin tray with paper cases. Put the butter, caster sugar, eggs, flour, baking powder and vanilla extract in a bowl and beat with a hand-held electric mixer for about a minute until light and creamy. Divide the mixture between the paper cases. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool.

Half both passionfruits and scoop the pulp into a bowl with cream and 1 tablespoon icing sugar. Whip until it just holds its shape. Peel the cupcakes away from its paper cases and cut it in half horizontally. Sandwich them together with the passionfruit cream. Dust with icing sugar and serve!
