Kiwifruit, Lime and Coconut Muffins



  • Melted butter, to grease
  • 300g (2 cups) self-raising flour
  • 100g (½ cup) caster sugar
  • 45g (½ cup) desiccated coconut
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lime rind
  • 90g butter, melted
  • 250ml (1 cup) buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 kiwifruit, peeled, thinly sliced crossways
  • 35g (½ cup) shredded coconut
  • Icing sugar, to dust


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Brush eight 150ml-capacity muffin pans with melted butter to lightly grease.
  2. Combine the flour, sugar, desiccated coconut and lime 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Dust with icing sugar to serve.
