Love this recipe. It is failproof and so easy. I have also used bananas instead of feijoas and it made an amazing banana loaf!
I use a metal loaf tin with a lid and it keeps it so moist and soft, especially on the top.
Awesome recipe!!

Top Tip: With this recipe, you can cook the feijoas, water, butter and dates - and freeze in a zip lock bag to use another day! Great when feijoas are surplus.

I love this version of the loaf & already I've made 6 loaves since the beginning of this season. 2 of them I gave away as treats to friends.

Pretty tasteless, The feijoas had more flavour than the loaf, I suggest to use more feijoas or even mash them and add them in.

This recipe is easy and tastes good!

This is the easiest loaf ive made... so moist and moreish too... just yum

We are absolutely drowning in Feijoas at the moment and this recipe is quick, easy and delicious. The second time I made this I doubled the amount of Feijoas (used 2 cups) and I also sprinkled some brown sugar on top of the mixture before I put it in the oven. Doubly Delish!

I have made this twice and everyone loves it. It's very easy to make.

Must have done something terribly wrong because all the reviews for this are amazing, however this was the worst piece of baking I have ever done. I ended up having to cook for an extra half an hour and it was still just a pile of stoge. I was far too sweet for me to even though I cut the sugar down to 3/4 of a cup if I ever attempted it again which I won't I would only use half a cup.

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 .

This bread is really nice ( probably because I love feijoa's so much)
i had to take it out a bit early since it was mostly cooked in the first 20 mins but really nice anyway

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.

This was gross, followed the instructions but it turned out like a mushy pancake...

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

Very tasty, stayed moist, yummy

Made a very tasty Feijoa loaf,will make it again now

Easiest recipe ever. Extra yummy when slathered with butter

I doubled the batch size as we have lots of feijoas to use up and made two loaves. My oven is hot so I baked this at 170 degrees fan bake, and it was done after 40 minutes. As suggested by someone else I added the eggs last so as not to cook them in the hot fruit mixture. Am sharing the recipe, it was easy and the loaf is so good!

I just made this really yummy and easy to make I dont think it will last long

really yum

Love this recipe so easy and so delicious ❤❤

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.
