Feijoa and Sultana Muffins

Because we have two Feijoa trees there is always a need to find recipes to use them in and this is one I have adapted from an old apple muffin recipe from my mother.
I used dark brown sugar in it once which I miss read was in the recipe one time and now used it and it gives the muffin an almost caramel flavour and a rich golden colour once halved.

¾ cup dark brown sugar
1 ½ tsp ground ginger
½ tsp baking powder
1 ¾ cups four
Pinch of salt
1 cup sultanas
1 cup peeled and chopped Feijoas
100gr melted butter
½ cup milk
1 tsp baking soda

In a bowl combine the sugar, ginger, baking powder, flour, salt and sultanas with a fork.
In a separate bowl/jug/pot melt the butter, and then add the milk, egg and baking soda beating together with a folk until well combined.
Add the chopped Feijoas (about 1 cm cubed size)
Pour over the flour mixture and mix until just combined.
Place spoonful’s into 12 greased muffin tins and bake for about 15 minutes at 210⁰C until just turning golden but don’t allow to burn.
Stand for 10 minutes before turning out and cooling on a wire rack.
