Coconut and Passionfruit Self-Saucing Puddings

I am very excited to be posting this recipe tonight, as I finally managed to lay my hands on some passionfruits last week!! I have lamented in previous posts about the difficulty in getting these delicious little morsels in the States, so when I saw some at Wholefoods on Friday, I basically cleaned them out! Then I went hunting for something interesting to do with them and found this recipe on the Taste website.

The original recipe was for one large pudding, but I decided to see if it would work as individual ones, as I find these much more fun and interesting to serve. Thankfully, they did work out very nicely, so I am posting the recipe below. The passionfruit gave such a nice tartness to the lovely coconut pudding. Yummy!! I should mention that I forgot to add the icing sugar just before serving, but it didn't really matter. Probably would have made for a nicer photo, but I was too busy trying to tuck in to remember such a minor detail!!

Individual Coconut and Passionfruit Self-Saucing Puddings
(Makes 6)

1 cup self-raising flour
1/2 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
2/3 cup light coconut milk
1 egg
80g butter, melted, cooled
pure icing sugar, to serve
1/2 cup caster sugar
3 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 cup milk
2 small lemons, juiced
3 passionfruit, halved

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 6 ramekins and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper.

2. Sift flour into a bowl. Stir in sugar and coconut. Whisk coconut milk, egg and butter together in a jug. Pour into flour mixture. Gently stir until combined. Spoon into prepared dish. Smooth surface.

3. Make sauce: Combine sugar and cornstarch in a bowl. Sprinkle over pudding. Combine milk and 1/3 cup lemon juice (don't worry if mixture curdles) in a small saucepan. Cook, stirring, over medium heat until mixture comes to the boil. Remove from heat and stir in passionfruit pulp. Pour hot lemon mixture over the back of a large metal spoon, over pudding.

4. Bake for approx. 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted halfway into pudding comes out clean. Dust with icing sugar and serve immediately.
