White Chocolate & Passionfruit Muffins. Need I say more?

Man oh man I do have a muffin recipe for y’all today. These aren’t your average fruit muffins with a sticky, sweet glaze. Noooo, they’re far from that.

These muffins, passionfruit and white chocolate to be exact, are something different. They’re easy and tasty, and what I love the most about them is that you can use tinned passionfruit pulp. So you can still enjoy these if you’re sweltering in summer’s heat or struggling to keep yourself warm in winter’s freezing temperatures.

Before making these, I was rather skeptical on their flavor. You see, I’ve eaten passionfruit cakes and muffins in the past, but apart from yellow-coloured cake or the odd black seed, they tasted nothing like passionfruit.

These muffins, though. They’re different. Oh yes, they’re much different. They’re saturated with passionfruit and are sweetened with decadent, white chocolate. And the glaze on top? It’s the icing on the cake. Literally.
