Kiwifruit Muffins – Easy Step By Step

Kiwifruit Muffins


Today I decided to bake Kiwifruit muffins. Usually I bake plum muffins but wanting to experiment I decided on Kiwifruit. Let’s hope they turn out.

I was going to core the Kiwifruit. If the kiwifruit are firm then try cutting the core out, however i decided to leave the core in and slice them whole as they weren’t too hard. If they are not too hard then usually they will soften as they cook.

Here’s a tip: Push the slices into the mixture prior to cooking (when they are placed on top of the muffin) so they don’t slide down or slide off the muffin while cooking.

I had set the oven temperature to 180 C , not wanting to burn them but found they cooked too slow. I recommend 200 c as a better temperature.
