Make the most of all the feijoa's available now by baking this flavoursome cake.

450g Feijoas
1 Lemon
1Tbsp Butter
2Tbsp Caster sugar
¼cup Glace ginger
100g Butter, softened
100g Brown sugar
150g Standard flour
1tsp Baking powder
2tsp Ground ginger
50g Ground almonds
3 Free-range eggs
2Tbsp Milk


  1. Heat the oven to 180C. Line the base of a 20cm baking tin with baking paper.
  2. Peel the feijoas, chop into 1cm cubes and mix with the juice of the lemon to prevent discolouration.
  3. Put them into a small saucepan with the 1 Tbsp butter and 2 Tbsp caster sugar to soften for 10 minutes over a low heat, stirring occasionally so they do not burn. Stir through the chopped glace ginger.
  4. Put the 100g softened butter and brown sugar into the bowl of a food mixer and beat until pale and thick.
  5. Sift the flour, baking powder and ground ginger. Add the almonds to the flour.
  6. Beat the eggs and milk in a bowl with a fork, then add to the creamed butter mixture a little at a time, alternating with the flour and almonds.
  7. Pour the batter into the tin and smooth the top. Spoon the feijoas and any syrup over the mixture.
  8. Bake for 40 minutes or until golden and lightly firm.
