Easy Homemade Peach & Passion fruit Cupcake Recipe from Scratch

This really is an easy cupcake recipe that you can comfortably make from home. As you may already know I am a big fan of fruit and so a lot of my cupcakes showcase fruit which gives me an excuse to eat them. As we all know fruit (and veggies) are good for you. With this cupcake I used a vanilla base and added a little passion fruit pulp with some diced peaches. Yum!

When you pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes you might want to leave a little gap in the center to put the peaches and passion fruit pulp. Otherwise they may slide off the cupcake and make a mess.

Well, my grandchildren are on there way around so these treats will surely please. And i don’t mind giving them to them as the fruit adds to the nutrition! Only make sure you don’t eat too many. Its a sad fact that obesity is on the rise and due to the large consumption of sugar. if this is a problem for you i suggest an alternative sweetener such as stevia rather than sugar. I tend to bake a lot with honey and molasses also as an alternative to white sugar!

Ingredients

  • For The Cupcakes:
  • 125g butter, softened but not melted
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 2 free range eggs, room temperature
  • 125g self-raising flour
  • 50g sour cream
  • The pulp of 3-4 fresh passionfruit
  • 2 peaches, diced into small cubes
  • For the vanilla sour cream swirled frosting with passion fruit and peach topping:
  • 75g full-fat sour cream
  • 100g butter, softened
  • 3 1/2 cups icing sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • The pulp of 3-4 fresh passionfruit
  • 1 peach, diced into small cubes

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F or 170C fan bake. Line cupcake tins with baking paper liners
  2. In a large bowl, beat the butter along with the caster sugar on a high speed until the mixture is fluffy and creamy.
  3. Add the eggs one by one, mixing thoroughly after each addition.
  4. Add the vanilla essence and then continue to beat further.
  5. On a low mixing speed, mix in the flour until it is well combined.
  6. Add the sour cream to make for a moister cupcake.
  7. Finally, fold in the passion fruit pulp and diced peaches until just stirred through.
  8. Spoon into the cupcake liners – just below the top of the case.
  9. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the tops have risen and are starting to turn golden.
  10. Remove from the oven to cool completely.
  11. For The Frosting:
  12. In a medium to large bowl, beat the butter and the sour cream on a high mixing speed until creamy.
  13. Add the icing sugar one cup at a time, then the vanilla essence.
  14. The buttercream should be nice and soft, but firm enough to pipe and to hold its shape. If it isn’t firm enough to hold it's shape then add more sugar.
  15. In a piping bag fitted with a 1M Wilton star tip, fill the bag with the frosting.
  16. Pipe swirls onto the cooled cupcakes and top with the peaches and passionfruit pulp. Serve as fresh as possible.
