      I don't think I've ever had passion fruit before or even seen it, but it sounds amazing as does this recipe. These cupcakes seem like they would be real moist and full of flavor since the pulp of the passion fruit is used.

      I made these tonight and they're delicious!!! Love 'em. I couldn't find fresh passion fruit at the supermarket so I used canned passion fruit pulp instead. Thx for the recipe :)

      Thank you, Millionaire Tips! You can also use canned passion fruit, but it's not as good. Thanks for reading and leaving a comment!

      Oh these look great! I have passionfruit that grows in my yard, but since this isn't the right zone for them, many years they don't ripen before frost. I will have to keep this recipe for a good year (or resort to buying passion fruit).
