Sweet temptations

Hello there. . . thanks for dropping by the Shabby Art Boutique. I have a sweet treat for you today.

On the weekend we headed down to our local farmers market and picked up a basket of plump passionfruit. . .


to use in one of our family favourite recipes. . .


How delicious do these Passionfruit and white chocolate muffins look?

I thought you may fancy trying a batch yourself so here’s the quick and super easy recipe.

Passionfruit and white chocolate muffins


  • 2 cups self-raising flour, sifted
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 100g white chocolate, chopped
  • 125g butter, melted, cooled
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 1/4 cup passionfruit pulp
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Passionfruit icing

  • 1 1/4 cups pure icing sugar
  • 2 teaspoons hot water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons passionfruit pulp



  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Lightly grease a 12-hole 1/3-cup capacity muffin pan.

  2. Combine flour, sugar and chocolate in a bowl. Make a well in the centre.

  3. Whisk butter, milk, egg, passionfruit and vanilla in a jug. Pour into well. Gently fold until just combined. Three-quarter fill muffin holes with mixture. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Stand in pan for 5 minutes. Turn onto a wire rack.

  4. Make passionfruit icing: Stir icing sugar, water and passionfruit in a bowl until smooth. Spoon over muffins, allowing to drizzle down sides. Allow to set. Serve. Makes 12

Tip: pop a sheet of baking paper under the cooling stand when you ice them to catch the drips. I forgot the baking paper this time, so had a messy bench to clean up afterwards.


Did you notice we used milk chocolate instead of white chocolate? My youngest Aimee has always been keen to swap the milk chocolate buddies for the white ones and she got her chance on this occasion, as we were out of the usual white ones. Got to say. . . both ways are delicious!!


I’m glad I shot these photos yesterday afternoon because all the muffins are gone now.

  1. Yummy!! I’m happy with any chocolate!!

  2. OMG!!! I suddenly feel a fever coming on so I can leave work and go home immediately and bake a batch of these. Yum Yum Yum. I might have to make three batches(white, milk and dark, although I think dark will be to rich, but will have to have a fair and just comparison) to see which variation I like best. Thanks Kerryanne.

  3. Mmmmmmmmmmm, I’m just off to work and I spy these scrummy bakes – not fair.

    Might have to pick up a muffin on the way into work just to make up for it LOL
