These Thermomix Banana and Passionfruit Cakes are the cutest (and most delicious!) morning or afternoon tea treat!
If you are looking for a fun twist on banana bread, these Thermomix Banana and Passionfruit Cakes are for you! The addition of passionfruit and coconut to my favourite Thermomix Banana Bread recipe turned a classic (but still totally delicious!) recipe into something really special.
If you can't get your hands on fresh passionfruit, you can simply use a tin of passionfruit instead. Sprinkling a little extra coconut over the top of these cakes before baking gives your cakes a yummy toasted coconut flavour which goes perfectly with the passionfruit and banana. I like to use shredded coconut when making this recipe, but you can use desiccated (or even leave it out!) if you prefer.
Don't worry if you don't have a mini loaf tin, you can also make these into muffins, just check them after 15 minutes in the oven.
