Kiwifruit & Coconut Muffins

When I first came across this recipe, I thought it sounded... interesting. Coconut in a muffin is fairly normal, but kiwifruit? Hm...

These muffins were quite nice, to be honest! They're quite coconut-y and the kiwifruit on top adds a nice flavour.

They're something summery, something easy - and something different to try!

Give these a go - they're quite yummy. {adapted from here}

Kiwifruit & Coconut Muffins
Makes 8

2 cups self-raising flour
1/2 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1 tbs finely grated lemon rind
90g butter, melted
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg
3 kiwifruit, peeled, thinly sliced crossways
1/2 cup shredded coconut

Preheat oven to 200°C. Brush eight muffin pans with melted butter to lightly grease.
Combine the flour, sugar, desiccated coconut and lemon rind in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. Whisk together the butter, buttermilk and egg in a jug. Add to the flour mixture and stir until just combined.
Spoon the mixture among the prepared pans. Top with kiwifruit and sprinkle with shredded coconut. Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centres comes out clean. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
