Ingredients

    125g butter
    3/4 cup Chelsea White Sugar
    2 eggs
    1 1/2 cup mashed feijoa pulp
    1 tsp baking soda
    2 Tbsp hot milk
    2 cups plain flour
    1 tsp baking powder

    Optional Icing
    3/4 cup Chelsea Icing Sugar
    Juice of 1/2 a lemon
    25g butter
    2 Tbsp hot water

Method

    Preheat oven to 180°C.
    Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add mashed feijoas and mix lightly so there are still lumps of it throughout the mixture. In another bowl, stir baking soda into hot milk mix into creamed mixture. Sift in flour and baking powder, fold into the mixture until combined.
    Turn into a greased and lined 20cm (approx) round cake tin. Put into preheated oven for 50 min or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Leave in tin for 10 mins before turning out onto a cooling rack.

    Icing (optional):
    Mix all the ingredients in a bowl or container until fully mixed. Continue mixing until your desired consistency is reached. Add extra lemon if you are after a more lemony taste. Serve and enjoy!

    Note: this recipe turns out even better if mixed in a cake mixer.

This receipe has been a huge success every time I make it. I add a little more feijoa to make it extra moist.

This recipe is very much like a banana cake I make. I used 2 cups of feijoas for more flavor and in my oven cake took 30 minutes on fan bake set at 170c. A very moist and light cake. Thanks for sharing your recipe

Really yummy!

A beautiful cake. Have left the cake uniced (not keen on icing) tastes delicious. Found it very straightforward to make. A very light cake, was expecting it to be more dense. Thoroughly addictive.

Beautiful light, full of flavour cake, very addictive. One slice is never enough.

OMG!! Love, love, love!!
Easy to make & sooooooo tasty!

I can't cook cakes, they turn out heavy and dense. This one was light and airy, delicious. Easy to make, no frills recipe. Fabulous

Simple recipe. Did it with 2c feijoa. Kids loved it. Very moist and tasty. Recommend it.

I'm pregnant and didn't expect it to taste so damn good... I have actually eaten 1/3 of the cake already and am battling myself to not go back for more. I made our icing extra lemony and the cake was still a little warm when I iced it so the icing melted a little and seeped into the cake - omg divine.

Simple and delicious! Strong feijoa flavour :)

mmmmmmmmmmm

Excellent moist cake. Would increase the feijoa content slightly next time I make it. Definately recomment.

Awesome cake... I tried this easy recipe and came out well... Highly recommended... Yummy & moist... My kids & hubby loved it...

Easy and so yummy

Lovely cake with a nice texture. I peeled the feijoas and cut them into a small dice. A great way to use up our surplus.

First time I've made or eaten feijoa cake and this recipe is delicious. Read the other review and went for 2 cups of feijoas. Moist and scrumptious.

This cooked in 35 mins, left in tin for 10 after. It took 2 1/4 cups of icing sugar for icing to be of a consistency like the photo. Yummy cake though could definitely take 2 cups of fejoa!
