New Zealand Kiwi Bread

So since I started doing the Green B.E.A.N bin delivery I have a lot of fruits and veggies that I often times need to eat quickly. This past week I had kiwi coming out of my ears so I looked up a recipe so I could use them up. This is what I found and was pretty pleased with it :) Something different!

New Zealand Kiwi Bread (

  • 6 -7 medium ripe kiwi
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 6 -8 teaspoons lemon juice

Pare the kiwi and chop enough to make 1 1/2 cups. Place chopped fruit in a 2 quart pan, add sugar and lemon peel. Bring to a boil, stirring until fruit loses some of its color. Allow to cool.

Beat eggs and oil well. Blend together flour, baking powder and salt.

Add the baking soda to cooked kiwi mixture. Stir until bubbles form. Add this to the egg mixture and then add flour mixture to it. Stir until dry ingredients are moistened.

Spoon mixture into a well greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees about 55 minutes. Cool in pan 10 minutes and turn out onto wire rack. 

Make icing with powdered sugar and lemon juice. Spoon over loaf.

My Mom rated this bread a 9!!! It was pretty good and easy!
