Kiwi fruit muffins

    30 min

    I received this recipe while living in New Zealand with a friend. His wife prepared a batch of these moist muffins for him. I 'sampled' so many that the next time, she doubled the recipe so there were plenty for both of us.

    Lovely and easy to make  -  02 Jul 2011


    While these muffins were very easy to make, I was a little disappointed with the bland taste. I decided to finish off with a brown sugar topping. I don't think I will be making these again.  -  01 May 2013


    I would give these 3.5 stars. A decent but rather 'ordinary' base muffin recipe. The kiwi fruit was a delicious and unusual addition but it's not enough to make these muffins truly memorable. Also, the baking temperature on these is much too high. I preheated my oven for 425 which produced an oven spring for nicely domed muffins, but then I immediately lowered the temperature to 375. AT 18 minutes, my muffins were crisp and brown around the edges. They would have been hockey pucks if I had left the temperature at 425.  -  24 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
