Kiwi BreadPosted: January 16, 2012
From May 27, 2005: I made this kiwi bread to take to a party last weekend. People seemed to enjoy it. The kiwi flavor was subtle (which was a bit disappointing for me). The bread turned out a bit crumbly and dry, so if I make it again, I won’t cook it as long as I did (60 minutes).
2 cups unbleached flour, sifted
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 cup peeled, mashed kiwi fruit (about 3 or 4)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees – grease and flour a 9x5x3 loaf pan.
Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda & salt. In a large bowl cream the butter, add the sugar gradually & beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, to creamed mixture, beating well after each one. Stir in the kiwis. Fold in the dry ingredients gently, stirring only until batter is completely moistened. Spoon batter into pan and bake for 60-70 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack – then remove from pan and cool completely.
