Method

White chocolate and passionfruit kisses
  • 1
    Preheat oven to 200°C. Grease oven trays; line with baking paper.
  • 2
    Beat butter, caster sugar and egg in a small bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in sifted dry ingredients and buttermilk, on low speed, until smooth. Stir in white chocolate and passionfruit.
  • 3
    Drop level tablespoons of mixture about 5cm apart onto trays; tap trays lightly on the bench to spread slightly.
  • 4
    Bake cakes about 10 minutes. Cool on trays.

    Meanwhile, make passionfruit marshmallow filling: place ingredients in a medium heatproof bowl over a medium saucepan of simmering water (do not allow water to touch base of bowl). Whisk vigorously for 10 minutes or until thick and creamy. Remove from heat; transfer mixture to a large heatproof bowl. Beat with electric mixer, on high speed, for 5 minutes or until mixture is thick and holds its shape.

    Spoon marshmallow filling into a piping bag fitted with a 2cm fluted tube. Pipe filling on the flat side of half the cooled cakes; sandwich with remaining cakes. Serve kisses dusted with sifted icing sugar.

Notes

Unfilled cakes can be frozen for 2 months. Kisses, once filled, should be served within several hours.
