Recipe by Montana Heart Song
We like the taste of Kiwi Fruit and Lime Juice and I came up with this recipe based on likes and food restrictions. It is great with hot tea, topped with sweetened cream cheese or margarine or plain with tea or coffee, A family member cannot have milk but can have cream cheese. I freeze chopped Kiwis (if I can find them on sale).
- 4 1⁄2 cups white flour
- 3⁄4 cup white sugar or 3⁄4 cup splenda granular sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
