Ingredients

Passion Fruit Cupcakes: 
  • Butter, for greasing, optional
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup oil
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour, sifted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon strawberry-flavored gelatin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup passion fruit rum
Avocado Buttercream Frosting:
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
  • 1 teaspoon meringue powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 ripe avocado
  • Pinch salt

Directions

For the cupcakes: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 12-cup muffin tin or line with parchment paper. 

Blend the eggs, oil, granulated sugar and vanilla in a mixer. Add the flour, baking powder, gelatin and salt. Add the rum and blend until smooth. Do not over beat. Fill the tins halfway full with batter and bake until a toothpick inserted comes out clean, 15 to 18 minutes.

For the frosting: Cream the confectioners' sugar, butter and meringue powder until creamy and fluffy in a mixer. Add the vanilla and lime juice, cream until well blended. Mix in the avocado until smooth. Do not over beat. Add salt to taste. 

Frost each cupcake with the frosting.
