Feijoa Crumble Cake

By PaisleyJade - Monday, April 21, 2014

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.

  2. Hi there. Should I be using regular flour or self-raising for this recipe? New to baking so a bit clueless. ..

    1. Hi Vee - just plain flour (would say if self raising). All the best!
