Amazing Vegan Passionfruit Coconut Cupcakes - Soft, Fluffy & Moist | Delia.v Life

Living in the tropics has its perks such as having an abundance of tropical fruits all year round! Passionfruit is not the most commonly consumed fruit maybe partly due to the numerous amount of seeds in them. But the flavors they impart to bake goods...oh lordddddd sweet, exotic yet slightly tart! What better to complement the unique flavor of passion fruit than another tropical fruit: C-O-C-O-N-U-T!

Guys, these two are a match made is heaven okay. Super fluffy and fragrant coconut cupcakes are filled with exotic passion fruit curd and topped with light, creamy coconut frosting. Every bite is so flavorful it will make you swoon with delight <3 You have to try it to believe it! To make these cupcakes more nutritious, we used white spelt flour here. We have also tested these with monk fruit sweetener and they still come out beautifully. So, if you are trying to avoid sugar, feel free to use erythritol monk fruit sweetener.

A word on the frosting here: It is not like your typical butter filled frosting which makes you feel sick after awhile. Predominantly milk-based, our frosting is light and creamy without being too sweet or greasy. You don't need cups and cups of icing sugar and butter to make a good frosting trust us! We really love this frosting it is our go-to recipe for frosting everytime~
