Bread - New Zealand Kiwi

Prep Time

25 min

Cooking Time

55 min




6 -7 medium ripe kiwi (how to do)

1 cup packed brown sugar (I use 1/2 cup of organic brown sugar and 1 banana) 

 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel

1 grass-fed or pastured egg 

1/2 cup vegetable oil (I use 1/2 cup coconut oil)

1 1/2 cups flour (I use gluten-free all purpose)

1/2 teaspoon salt (I use Himalayan or sea salt)

1/2 teaspoon aluminum-free baking powder (or sub with baking soda and an acid if Paleo)

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/3 cup powdered organic sugar 

2-3 teaspoons organic 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.


The recipe states it serves 10 people. Using a loaf pan, a good sized serving is half of a slice.  No need to overdo the sugar in the diet!
