I have long been putting custard powder into my muffin mixes, but this is the first time I have used it in my cupcake mix. I made a plain vanilla cupcake recipe and added about a half a cup of custard powder to the mix. This gives it a creamier taste, but only makes it slightly custardy.
I then topped them with a vanilla buttercream icing, mixed with a few tablespoons of passionfruit. Then I drizzled passionfruit over the top.
The extra sweetness from the custard powder cuts through the tart passionfruit and brings a really nice balance to the flavours. I am not the hugest passionfruit fan and I loved these!
