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.
These Thermomix Banana and Passionfruit Cakes are simple to make and are a great morning or afternoon tea treat.
- 220 grams plain flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon

- 2 passionfruit Use 3 if your passionfruit is small.
- 2 eggs

Preheat your oven to 160 degrees and place 2 x 6 hole mini loaf tins on your bench.
Place the bananas (which have been broken in half), coconut oil, eggs, vanilla extract and the pulp and seeds from 1 passionfruit into your Thermomix bowl and mix for 10 seconds on speed 5 to combine.
Scrape down the sides of your bowl and add the plain flour, baking powder, cinnamon, brown sugar, caster sugar and coconut and mix for 10 seconds on speed 4.
Divide the mixture between the mini loaf tins and sprinkle with a little extra coconut if you wish. Bake for 18 - 20 minutes or until cooked through when tested with a skewer.
Drizzle the extra passionfruit over the top of the cakes while they are still warm - optional.
If your passionfruit is small, add two of them to this recipe.
