Cake

2. Preheat the oven to 180°C, 160°C Fan or Gas Mark 4.
3. Line your cupcake tin with paper cases.
4. Sift the flour and baking powder together into a large bowl, making sure to hold the sieve high to add plenty of air.
5. Add the rest of the ingredients to the flour and mix in a freestanding electric mixer for exactly 2 minutes. Time this bit, it’s important not to overbeat!
6. Divide your batter evenly between the 18 cases, filling about 2/3 full.
7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.
8. Allow to cool and then cut out the centres with a grapefruit knife. Pop in a spoonful of passionfruit curd and put the sponge back together.
9. Frost generously with coconut buttercream.
 
Passion Fruit Curd

3. Once the passion fruit mix has melted, pour over the eggs and whisk quickly.
4. Return to the heat and stir continually until the mixture is just ready to boil.
5. Allow to cool and then store in the fridge.
 
Coconut Buttercream
 
1. Beat the butter and coconut extract in a freestanding electric mixer until smooth and soft.
2. Gradually sieve in the icing sugar, beating well after each addition.
