Tamarillo & Golden Syrup Mini Loaves

These lovely little loaves are rich and decadent, and married with the pop of tart tamarillo, they are such a delicious combination. Eat them warm, with yoghurt or whipped cream, or serve them at afternoon tea.

Tamarillo & Golden Syrup Mini Loaves


2 Twisted Citrus tamarillos, peeled and sliced 1 cm thick

50grams butter
2 tablespoons Golden Syrup

Loaf mix:
1 ¾ self raising flour
1 cup caster sugar
125 grams butter melted
2 eggs
¼ cup of milk  
¼ cup cocoa



1.  Preheat oven to 180 degrees fan bake

2.  Grease 8 mini loaf tins/moulds  

3.  In a pot, melt together your topping ingredients

4.  Pour equal amount of the golden syrup mix into your greased loaf moulds

5.  Place one slice of tamarillo in the middle of your loaf tin/mould. Set aside

6.  Sift flour into a bowl, add sugar & cocoa make a well in the centre.

7.  Add melted butter, eggs & milk. Whisk until combined and smooth

8.  Place the loaf mix on top of the tamarillo slices in the loaf tins. I find using two spoons easiest for this. Leave a little space when filling, for them to rise while cooking.

Cook for 25-35 mins until a skewer comes out clean when tested.

Cool in the tins for 10 mins then turn out. Occasionally the tamarillos will stick a little. Use a butter knife to help them out if needed.  

Serve warm with yoghurt or whipped cream, or once cooled they are lovely for afternoon tea.


Our big red tamarillos are the Laird’s Large variety, which, in addition to being generously proportioned, have a delightful tangy flavour that really make the taste buds sing.

Tamarillos store well in the fridge for up to two weeks or keep them in your fruit bowl for about a week. They can easily be frozen – either whole (remove the skins first) or pureed.

Our tamarillos are handpicked, packed and transported with care so they arrive at your door with shiny, smooth, unblemished skins, bursting with flavour and ready to take pride of place in your fruit bowl.
