Thermomix Passion Fruit Cupcakes - sweet, tangy and perfect for an afternoon treat.

I posted last week my all time favorite Vanilla Cupcake recipe, which is my go to recipe for cupcakes and sponge cakes.  It’s a recipe that can be the base of many cupcake and cake creations.  It’s so quick and easy and involves very little effort.

I’ve made these Thermomix Passion Fruit Cupcakes as we adore passion fruit in our house and it’s in season at the moment here in Victoria so is reasonably priced.  If you can’t get your hands on any fresh passion fruits, then passion fruit pulp out of a tin is also fine.
