  • 12 whole passion fruits see note
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar or caster sugar
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 egg yolk


  • Begin by cutting the passion fruits in half and using a spoon to scrape the seeds into a saucepan.
  • Heat these over a medium heat for about 5 minutes to help the seeds release their juices. Then remove from the heat and strain through a fine mesh sieve, scraping the seeds against the sieve to press the juices out into a bowl.
  • Return the juice to the saucepan and add the sugar, egg and yolk. Whisk together while heating over a medium heat for about 10 minutes until thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon.
  • Remove from the heat and decant into a heatproof bowl or jar to cool completely before serving.


Twelve passion fruits should produce between ½-¾ cup of juice once strained through the sieve. You can replace the fresh passion fruits with the equivalent amount of fresh passion fruit juice. Do not use juice from concentrate.
