Kiwi Walnut Bread


  • 2 cups sifted flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1-½ cups kiwifruit, drained and chopped
  • ¾ cups walnuts, chopped
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ¼ cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Sift flour with sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a large bowl. Add kiwifruit and walnuts, and mix well. Add egg, butter and vanilla. Stir until just blended. Pour mixture into a greased and floured 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for one hour or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center of the loaf comes out clean. Let the bread cool in the pan five minutes, then place it on a rack to complete cooling. Serve in thin slices spread with softened cream cheese.
