Kiwifruit Muffins – Easy Step By Step


muffinToday 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 is 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.

I’m Julie. This is where my love of cupcakes, digital photography as well as writing comes to life! How did this recipe thing all begin? In November of 2012, I made the decision that I needed to keep a log of my recipes, so I started a simple recipe blog. This beautiful collection of cupcakes and cafe delights continues to grow every week and I can’t wait to see where it is 5 years down the road. My grandma encouraged all of my baking. At family gatherings with well over 250 individuals the midst of absolutely no where, she consistently was able to create perfect cherry cobblers along with other goodies for dessert over the campfire. It seemed to be like magic for me.
