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.
