Passionfruit muffins

Happy first day of Australian Winter!
Do you need some warmth to brighten these chilly days?
Bring a little sunshine into your kitchen with these yummy passion-fruit muffins. 
Recipe found using a Google search and modified to suit what I had in my kitchen...
2 eggs (thank you Betty and Wilma!)
½ cup sugar
1 cup yoghurt, plain or flavoured
60 g butter, melted
½ cup desiccated coconut
1½ cups self-raising flour
1 small tin of passion-fruit pulp (hold back one tbs)

1. Preheat oven to 180°C and grease a 12-hole muffin pan or line with paper cases.
2. In a large bowl, whisk eggs and sugar together until frothy.
3. Add yoghurt and melted butter and mix well. Add the passion-fruit, coconut and flour and
mix gently.
4. Fill muffin pans with the mixture and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden.

If you wish to put an icing glaze on top (I did!) Mix the tablespoon of passion fruit pulp you held back from the tin and mix it with a spoon of melted butter and then keep adding icing sugar until it becomes thick enough to drizzle over the warm muffins. 

Eat them warm!
