    This cake was so easy and delicious! Everyone loved it, even those who aren't fans of Feijoas. It's not too overpowering, delicious and moist!  -  26 Apr 2014


    I thoroughly recommend creaming the butter and sugar together before adding the other ingredients, so the butter is well distributed. Also, cake is very good with gluten-free flour!  -  13 May 2017


    I cooked this in a ring cake tin and was delicious with some whipped cream.  -  13 Apr 2015
