Easy Feijoa Muffins

By PaisleyJade - Wednesday, April 27, 2011

We currently have feijoas coming out of our ears, thanks to our neighbours generous feijoa tree that hangs over our driveway. I love feijoas and anything feijoa related (you wouldn't believe how addicted I was to feijoa juice when pregnant with our youngest!).

When I saw (and couldn't stop drooling over) BobbyRobin's Yummy Feijoa Loaf last week, I just had to make it... and then went on a 'feijoa recipe hunt'.

That's when I found these delicious babies - and I love the fact that this recipe is so easy to whip up (and devour).  Check out the other great recipes on this Kiwi Wiki site too - Kiwiana heaven!!

Easy Feijoa muffins
1 cup chopped feijoa
75 gm butter
2 eggs
¾ cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
2 cups flour
milk to mix (or fresh lemon or orange juice)

1 tsp cinnamon
1 Tblspn sugar

Cut feijoas in half and scoop out flesh with a spoon and overfill a cup.  Cut feijoa flesh into pieces so cup is packed.  Melt butter in a bowl add feijoa and stir.  Add unbeaten eggs and combine.  Fold in dry ingredients, add liquid to achieve a soft consistency.  Spoon into muffin pans.  Mix cinnamon and sugar topping and sprinkle over muffins.

Bake in 200° for 10 to 15 minutes.
Makes 12 standard, or 24 mini muffins
