Guavadilla Cupcakes

I had to giggle to myself as I have nearly 2 cups of guavadilla pulp and only used 50ml for this recipe – guess I might be making loads more cupcakes…  No no, the balance will go into the freezer and probably get used to make a juice concentrate when the folks next visit or possibly used as the topping to an unbaked cheesecake – you never know, maybe both.  I used the same recipe as for my Birthday Cupcakes – think it’s my new favourite cupcake recipe and if you are worried about what to do with the egg yolks, you can always make Celia’s Microwave Custard.

  1. Make my curd recipe with the leftover! I had left over grapefruit juice the other day and had good intentions to make sorbet but I was thirsty…

  2. Guavadillas (Passionfruit), like Jerusalem artichokes, are something I’ve never tried before. I need to remedy that. Enjoy your wekend, Mandy!

  3. Wow, these cupcakes are beautiful, Mandy! Wish I can whip up gorgeous cupcakes like you, seriously… Have a great weekend!

  4. Mandy what the heck is a guavadilla? Is that a guava who had an affair with a granadilla? Talk about a passion fruit! Cupcakes look delish!
