Feijoa Crumble Cake

It is the season here in New Zealand for the Feijoa!!  If you haven't tried a Feijoa before, you are seriously missing out.  These little green fruits are soooo delicious and really great for baking with, and the juice is so nice to drink as well.

This crumble cake is really simple to make, and very nice!  You can easily substitue the feijoas with other fruit like bananas, apples, plums etc.  I served it warm with whipped cream, and the fruity taste mixed with the crunchy sweet topping was the perfect afternoon treat and would also work well as a delicious dessert.

·         125g melted butter
·         1 to 1½ cups chopped feijoas
·         1 cup sugar
·         1 egg
·         1½ cups flour
·         1 tsp salt
·         1 tsp baking soda
·         2 tsp cinnamon
·         1 tsp all spice

Crumble topping
·         1½ Tbsp butter melted
·         ¼ cup rolled oats
·         ¼ cup brown sugar
·         1 tsp white sugar

1.     Line 23cm cake tin or medium sized loaf tin (l 22cm x w 12.5 cm x 6cm deep).
2.     Melt butter, remove from heat and cool.
3.     Beat sugar and egg.
4.     Add melted butter and feijoas to egg and sugar mix.
5.     Fold in dry ingredients.
6.     Pour batter mixture into lined cake or loaf tin.
7.     Combine crumble topping ingredients and sprinkle evenly over mixture.
8.     Bake at 180 C for 30 – 40 minutes. Test cooked by: a) poking skewer in centre – no batter sticking,   or b)   pressing lightly in centre of cake – it's ready when cake springs back.
9.     Serve warm or cold with cream or yoghurt.

Softie Giveaway!!!!

Happy Easter everyone!  

To celebrate Easter (as well as my 6 year blog anniversary coming up), I thought it would be the perfect time to do a softie bunny giveaway!

I love this vintage blue rabbit - and I'm sure you or someone you know would too!  It has been handmade with love by myself, and ready for a home of it's own.

To enter, leave your name in the comments and your email address (if your comment doesn't link back to you).

The draw will be done on my Bloggiversary, 28th April at 7pm New Zealand time!

One entry per person - so get commenting!

p.s. Here's my favourite Scripture verse to read at Easter time:

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. "For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him.                      John 3:16-17

I've had heaps of fun making a few softies lately - ones for friends, my girls and a couple of spares have been popped in the shop (link at top of blog).

The dark blue one reminds me so much of Grover off Sesame Street!

Which one is your favourite?  Who's keen for another Softie giveaway??
