I was mucking around yesterday and came acrooss a recipe for kiwi fruit loaf .
I thought I would make it .adding one cup of water to a saucepan,one cup of suger,and 6 kiwi fruit .bought it to the boil.until the sugar had disolved.mashed it in the pan and left it to cool.I then put the oven on to 180 degrees. sprayed a loaf pan with cooking spray and added one egg to the mashed kiwi fruit mixture, then added 2 1/2 cups of s/r flour and mixed. Poured into loaf pan and set on middle shelf in the oven.After about 30 mins noticed the top of loaf was browning up so covered the top with tin foil.after the cooking time was up 60 mins.I checked it by inserting a knive in the centre .after 75 mins . still not ready.
I pulled it out left it for a while and turned it out on bench.top was nice bottom and sides not burnt but close to it .My Question is how could I have done this differently.Loaf was cooking from the outside in and not the other way around.
I sent a e-mail to Pams nz and got a phone call back.
They suggested that my mixture could have been to wet ,also the loaf could have been a little to low in oven.On thinking about it they are right in what they were saying .I will give it another try next week.

Kiwi Fruit Loaf my favourite unfortunately I am not able to eat it anymore.
I use to make it a lot. I made loaves and froze them but they kept disappearing from the freezer. Our Kids loved them too.
From memory I used six Kiwi Fruit, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water, approx 100gm butter brought this to the boil until the kiwi fruit had stewed. Then allowed this to cool. I added 2-3 cups of flour 1 egg (beaten lightly with a fork). and 1 teaspoon Baking soda. (dissolved in milk). 1tbs heated
I mixed everything in the pot with the kiwifruit. (I used a fork to stir it all together.) Usually the mix would fill 2 loaf tins. Then put it in a preheated oven 180-200 for 40 minutes.
I left it to cool then turned it out. The longer the loaf was left the easier it was to cut it.
I have also substituted the kiwi fruit, with apple-peach-pear.
