Banana & Kiwi Muffins with Yogurt

Banana & Kiwi Muffins with Yogurt

Yogurt, banana and kiwi are a staple breakfast combination! I put them together in muffins. Enjoy the subtle balance of sweetness and tarness.

Ingredients: 7 to 8 muffins

★Lemon juice
2 teaspoons
☆Granulated sugar
20 g
Granulated sugar
50 g
A pinch
Plain yogurt (non-sweetened)
3 heaped tablespoons
1 tablespoon
Unsalted butter
20 g
Cake flour
130 g
Baking powder
1.5 teaspoons


1. Preparation: Line the muffin moulds with the paper cups (if you use special muffin paper cases don't bother). Melt the butter.
2. Quarter the kiwi lengthways and slice into 5 mm.
3. Put the kiwi and the ☆ granulated sugar in a sauce pan and place over heat. After bringing to a boil, crush the fruit and reduce until there's only a little liquid.
4. When the mixture looks like jam, remove the sauce pan from the heat and leave to cool. Do this step the day before.
5. Mash the banana with a masher or fork. Add the ★ lemon juice.
6. Crack eggs into a bowl and beat well. Add the sugar and mix with a whisk.
7. Add yogurt and milk, and stir well.
8. Add melted butter and combine the mixture well.
9. Sift the flour and baking powder together and add 1/2 to the bowl. Mix well with a whisk.
10. Stir in the Step 5 banana.
11. Add the rest of the dry ingredients and fold in with a rubber spatula.
12. Spoon the batter into the muffin paper cups 1/2 full. Put 1 teaspoon of the Step 4 kiwi jam into each cup.
13. Cover the kiwi jam with the batter. Spoon a scant teaspoon of jam on top.
14. Bake in an oven preheated to 180ºC for 20 to 25 minutes until risen and golden-brown.
15. There's lots of kiwi inside. You'll be addicted to the tartness.

Story Behind this Recipe

The breakfast staples of banana, kiwi and yogurt are nice as they are but I wanted a little change to my usual breakfast. I made muffins with them. Have them for breakfast for a change.
