{Feijoa Crumble Cake}

I know, I know, I left it on the carrot cake for weeks and now I turn up with another cake, but its now or never with this one, well that's a bit dramatic as you could make it at this time of any year but what I mean is its now feijoa time so this lovely little cake is perfect for those feijoas you have sitting in the fruit bowl, I bet you have all the other ingredients in your pantry too, its not got anything fancy in it.

I found the recipe online and tweaked it, I just had that slice in the photo with a cup of tea and I'm a happy little hausfrau, now I am ready to take on the late afternoon toy tidy up, the getting in and folding of the washing and all those other jobs that I have been putting off all day ...

...the cake
125g butter, melted
1 cup chopped feijoas
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp all spice

...the crumble
1 1/2 tbsp butter, melted
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup brown sugar

Add the feijoas, sugar and egg to the melted butter. Stir well, then fold in the sifted dry ingredients. Pour mixture into a lined cake tin (I used a 20cm tin).

Combine the crumble ingredients and sprinkle over the cake then bake at 180 for 50-60 minutes, until the centre springs back when pressed lightly, cool in tin for ten minutes then remove and transfer to a rack.


  1. ooh lucky you! No ones even heard of feijoas over here in Perth :-(

  2. well seeing as I ignored this, apparently delicious fruit for so long right in front of my face, i can't help but be amazed at how, well, amazing that cake looks! Can;t believe you only stopped at one slice! lets catch up soon and we need to make that movie date - i'm seeing the previews all over and can't wait ;-)

  3. date night bring it on !!!! and you will be receiving some of this for morning tea as promised to enlighten you to the joys of feijoa's !!!

  4. YUM! I'm a bit feijoa-mad at the moment too - reckon they are the fruit version of asparagus - you've got to go nuts while they're in season cos it's a long time to wait to the next one!
