  1. This is a seriously amazing cake, the combination of feijoa and ginger is sooo good. We’ve just finished the last piece of the first one and I’m collecting more feijoas right away to make another – and I’m usually a person that get’s sick of things quickly, so testament to how good this cake it. My brother, who never gives compliments, also said how good it was.

    I was a bit skeptical of how it would turn out before I made it, given it doesn’t have eggs. But it’s a really nice texture – was almost like a pudding when I had a piece warm when it first came out, but the cold texture is just like moist, springy cake. So good, definitely recommend if you’re a feijoa and ginger fan.

  2. This cake was devoured by family in minutes- served as dessert with whipped cream. Totally delicious and so simple to make! What’s not to love about this recipe. Thanks so much!!

    • Hi Emma, just made this feijoa recipe. No eggs required and it was easy to make and delicious. A great way to use the abundance of feijoas available at the moment.
