Love this Loaf. So easy to make. Will be making it again... and again!

Delicious and easy to make. If you enjoy raisins or sultanas add some, tastes great.

Lovely moist loaf. Flavour enhanced with my addition of 1tsp of ground ginger into dry ingredients. This recipe is a keeper!

REALLY easy and was enjoyed by all (added walnuts to it) - will be my go-to feijoa baking recipe from now on .

Awesome, so yummy. We have baked this countless times.

So good! Just make sure you use exactly a cup and no more fejoias than that as my second attempt I used 1 1/2 cups by accident as I didn't measure and it didn't cook through properly and fell apart. But with the correct amount it came out moist, delicious and lasted over a week and tasted like it had just come out of the oven a week on!

Very easy, very tasty. Didn’t last long in our house!

What a lovely moist loaf. Will make it again. Yum

This recipe has become very popular with my family and friends so I keep on making it. Moist and yummy warm or cold.

Delicious and for extra taste I added a squeeze of lemon juice as well as the zest of the lemon.

Amazing! And very easy to make. Great slathered with butter, ice cream or just drizzled with cream. Yummy!

Very tasty, stayed moist, yummy

LOVED IT!! Such a great additive in the lunchbox, great toasted and easy to make. Have made a few of these and given a couple away. My new fave for feijoa season.

It looks great and yummy

Love it.
Have lots of feijoa and never know what to make.
Love this loaf.

Worked out great

Awesome, easy recipe! Was a huge hit at the office and at home!

I found this to be very easy and nice and moist

Very easy to make. I stuck to the recipe and it was beautifully moist and a definite feijoa taste.

A super easy recipe and a wonderful loaf. Perfect!

Excellent recipe we love it with walnuts in it. My favourite and very easy to make. My suggestion would be to add the flour mix before the eggs to stop eggs cooking with using a warm start to the first ingrediants. We have had many from our feijoa tree, even tried to freeze a couple but they only lasted a couple days.

I add half a cup of sultanas with the feijoa, and swap one cup of the plain flour for wholemeal. Yum

Absolutely yummy!
Also great as muffins.
Try making some buttercream icing using feijoa to replace the liquid.

Very easy, a big hit with the family

Easy as and everyone loves it with a little butter

Easy to make and lovely and moist. Recommend to feijoa lovers. I made it with margarine instead butter and it worked a treat.
