Feijoa season is still in full swing and so I'm on the hunt to find creative ways to use them up!
This cake is delightfully moist and flavorsome, as a good cake should be.
Don't expect it to rise hugely in the middle (grain free baking often does), as the ingredients are too dense for that, but don't let that put you off because this nutrient dense cake is divine cold or hot served along side a cup of tea on any occasion.
Make: 20 mins
Bake: 45 mins +
1. Heat oven to 160 degrees and line/grease a medium sized cake tin with baking paper
2. Put mashed feijoas, eggs, butter and sweetener in a bowl and whisk until smooth.
3. Combine all dry ingredients in another bowl, then add to wet ingredients.
4. Pour mixture into pre-prepared cake tin and then decorate with pecans.
5. Place cake in the hot oven for 45 minutes. Check the cake with a skewer at this point to see if it's cooked in the centre. If not, continue to cook at 5 minute intervals until skewer comes out clean.

Here’s one for the grown-ups! For all those who need a little pick-me-up during the day, this one is for you!
I adore anything that incorporates my two favorite things; chocolate and coffee. This bar take it even further and adds in some peanuts for a nutty flavor too!
I don't know about you, but lolly cake was always the slice I gravitated towards as a kid and teen, but when I became more health conscious and realised that malt biscuits, condensed milk and Eskimo lollies were less than nourishing, I tried to make better choices. But the other day I decided nobody should have to miss out and decided to healthify it.
Like the majority of my recipes, they are many easy substitutions such as a different nut butter, nut or dried fruit. It's adaptable to your own tastes and I've tried it with chopped dates, dried blueberries and walnuts and it was fabulous!
