Ginger and Feijoa Pecan Cake


by Nurse Nicky May 26, 2017

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 +

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca or arrowroot flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup of mashed feijoas
  • 2 Tbsp rice malt syrup (or more if you're a sweet tooth)
  • 50g butter, melted (or coconut oil for diary free)
  • 4 eggs
  • pecan nuts to decorate

Directions:

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.

It has a perfect soft spongy texture and holds together brilliantly for sandwiches, but is also amazing toasted for breakfast.

It contains protein from eggs and healthy fats from the nuts, topped with avocado and tomato, it really is a complete meal.

Chocolate Peppermint Slice
Chocolate Peppermint Slice

I adore peppermint anytime of year, but there's something about the flavour that does remind me of Christmas time. It's probably the candy canes we used to sneak from the tree before the day or the after-dinner mints we used to have at our Grandparents. Whatever the reason, I thought a Peppermint Slice was rather appropriate this time of year!
