  • 5 kiwifruit, peeled
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 75g butter, melted
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup self raising flour, sifted
  • 3/4 cup wholemeal flour, sifted
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Apricot jam, warmed, to glaze


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced).

  2. Grease a 12-hole muffin pan.

  3. Cut 3 kiwifruit into 4 slices each. Coarsely chop remaining 2.

  4. In a medium bowl, combine banana, milk, butter, egg and chopped kiwifruit (leaving the sliced kiwifruit aside).

  5. In a large bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients. Make a well in the centre and add the wet ingredients, stirring gently with a fork until mixture is just combined.

  6. Spoon mixture evenly into muffin pan and top each muffin with a slice of kiwifruit. Bake for 20 minutes then remove from the oven. Brush with the warmed apricot jam and bake for a further 5 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched. Cool on a wire rack.

Tip: A single kiwifruit has as much potassium as a banana and more vitamin C than an orange.
