Mary’s marvellous muffins

As soon as the first of the season’s feijoas start to drop, I start dreaming about Mary Dods’s delicious, moist feijoa cake and feijoa muffins. Like many people during this lockdown period, Mary has been busy in the kitchen whipping up treats to keep her bubble buddies happy. Here’s her marvellous feijoa muffin recipe . . .

Feijoas are a high-fibre fruit rich in vitamin C. They also contain potassium, magnesium and folic acid, so they are good for pregnant mums.
