passionfruit coconut pudding

One of those days for you, too?

The light in your kitchen is dismal, you take one photo and you get a 'memory stick full!' message (must remove all those Floriade pics). So you plug in to download some of your photos and the camera battery goes kaput. Give up on technology, throw a tizz, eat some chocolate.

You haven't quite got the amount of passionfruit you need for this recipe, but how would you know that until you've cut open and scooped out the wrinkly little fellows?

Anyway, you're committed - the batter is ready; you haven't got enough butter or eggs to start another recipe. No backing out now.

I love a batter shot.

Passionfruit and coconut pudding
Adapted from a supermarket magazine. This has a lovely tropical flavor (and colour!), just right as we're heading into winter. The original recipe specified six 3/4 cup ramekins at 25 minutes. Oh, and it turned out I did have enough passionfruit pulp - it truly was one of those days.
  • Preheat your oven to 180 and butter a baking dish (about 4.5 cups capacity).
  • Cream 200 gms soft butter with 3/4 cups sugar and 1 tsp vanilla.
  • Add 3 eggs.
  • Add 1/2 cup passionfruit.
  • Fold thru 1 cup SR flour, 1/2 cup plain flour and 1/2 cup dessicated coconut.
  • Spoon into your baking dish, smooth the surface and sprinkle with a little raw sugar.
  • Bake for about 45 minutes or until done, covering with foil if browning too much.
  • Serve warm with ice cream or cream.



  1. Passion fruit is amazing, love it, love it. This might be one of the most tempting recipes i saw!

    1. thanks paula! i love that i can enjoy a tropical flavour right now while they weather in hobart is anything BUT tropical :-)

  2. Passionfruit is a personal favourite of mine... I love the sound of this and I know that Peter would love it too.

    1. hello lizzy! i remember when everyone (or so it seemed) had a passionfruit vine growing over their backyard fence. i'm going to get one when the weather warms up.
      next time i would add even more passionfruit to this, so do try being generous :-)

    2. I always wanted a passionfruit vine!

  3. Yum, we have plenty of passionfruit at the moment, this pudding reminds me of impossible pie.

    1. oh, i'm jealous of your plentiful supply, lizzie. i just got a few more passionfruit today from a friend of mum's, but i really must plant my own vine so i can have some closer to home.


Word-verification is on, as the robot-spammers are loving my tuna past bake too much at the moment! I hope you understand - and I hope you'll still leave a comment at Dig In. I love hearing your thoughts, knowing someone is reading, and will always reply. Unless you're a robot-spammer.
