Notes

TIP: Despite its name, buttermilk is quite low in fat. If unavailable you can use skim milk mixed with 1 teaspoon of white vinegar or lemon juice.Jars or cans of unsweetened apple puree are available from the baby food aisle of most supermarkets. You will need approximately 3 passionfruit for this recipe.
