Another great sounding recipe from the New Zealand Women’s Weekly – this time combining honey, nutmeg, coconut and buttermilk with the deliciousness of feijoa.


Makes 12


  • 125g butter, softened
  • ½ cup honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1½ cups self-raising flour, sifted
  • ½ cup desiccated coconut
  • ½ tsp grated nutmeg
  • 8 medium feijoas, peeled and diced


  1. Heat oven to 180°C fan bake. Grease 12-hole standard muffin tin or line with paper cases. In a bowl, beat butter and honey together until creamy. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  2. Stir in buttermilk then stir in flour, coconut and nutmeg until just combined. Lastly stir in diced feijoas.
  3. Spoon muffin mixture into prepared tins and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until muffins are puffed and golden brown.
