Passionfruit pudding

Passionfruit - Coconut Self-saucing Pudding

It was nearly 10 years ago when I first come across this Passionfruit Coconut Pudding, published in a not so flashy food magazine.
... and it has been in our favourite, 'must serve guests' list ever since.

Whenever we have friends dropping by our house for a chat or friends visiting us from Malaysia, dear hubby would suggest 'Passion fruit pudding'...
or when we were invited to a pot luck party, another round of  'Passion fruit pudding'...
or once in a blue moon... little voice could be heard, whispering... 'Passion fruit pudding'!!!

I've baked this pudding umpteenth time... I am almost sure that I could bake this pudding with my eyes closed ;P

Passionfruit - Coconut Self-saucing Pudding

This pudding tastes better when fresh passion fruits are being used, but passion fruits aren't available all the time, all year round... so using canned passionfruit is forgivable ;P.

Passionfruit and Coconut pudding always comes to my rescue, whenever I want something quick, fuss-free and delicious.. I promise you that you or your guests will be wanting more and more :D

  1. What a heavenly combination! Wish I could eat that pudding for dessert...



  2. Passionfruit and coconut have the best aroma and the combination of two is unbeatable!

  3. I am salivating just reading this!!

  4. Tried this last night ---- AMAZING, except it didn't rise very much/at all. Maybe I should've used self-rising flour AND baking powder instead? Not sure what went wrong! The taste and texture were still great though, I just wish I could have made it look more like your photos :) Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe! ----Maria in Argentina

    1. Hi Maria,
      Thank you for your feedback and thank you for trying too: D

      You might want to avoid double dosage of baking powder, as self raising flour already has baking powder in it. Might get a taste of metallic pudding :(.

      It will not rise as much as cake. My photo was taken close up so it looks like it did rise :D
      Glad that you like the taste.

    2. Thanks for your reply!! I will try again (with only baking powder, no self-rising flour :p ) but with a different pan and maybe lower heat (I think I had it a tad too high last time...). Thanks so much again! :) :) :) ---Maria in Argentina
