Passion Fruit Apple Cups

Packed with vitamins A & C, rich in potassium, calcium and iron, passion fruit is one of those cool little fruits you can have so much fun with in the kitchen! Because it finally cooled off a bit today, we decided on a mid-afternoon baked treat featuring the now -local to San Diego fruit. And, we have apples blooming like crazy out back- the perfect comfort food as we transition toward fall.

Let us know what you think of this kid-friendly treat! Remember, the passion fruit are ripe when wrinkly!

What You’ll Need:

  • 6 Washed, sliced passion fruit
  • 4 small, washed & diced apples
  • 1 or 2 apples sliced in half
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 4 slices of vanilla bean skin
  • cinnamon
  • agave


  • Medium size glass or ceramic baking dish

Putting It All Together:

  1. Place extra 1 or 2 sliced in half apples to the outer edges of the baking dish. These will secure the passion fruit.
  2. Fill each half of your sliced passion fruit with diced apples, pushing passion fruit seeds to the bottom.
  3. Place each half in the dish.
  4. Spoon remaining diced apple in any nooks and crannies in the dish (see the photo above).
  5. Squeeze lemon over fruit.
  6. Place cut pieces of vanilla skin over sliced apples.
  7. Sprinkle cinnamon over sliced and diced apples as well as over the top of the filled passion fruit.
  8. Drizzle tiny amount of agave over each filled passion fruit as well as sliced apples.
  9. Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.
I use a convection oven, time may vary. Look for a slightly crisped appearance. Sliced apples should be puffy and penetrable by a fork.
