Feijoa and almond cake
(at time of publication)
Step 1 Preheat oven to 180°C. Place feijoa flesh in a small saucepan with sugar and water. Bring to the boil, turn down heat and simmer for 20 minutes until liquid has reduced. Mash with a fork to break up fruit. Set aside to cool.
Step 2 Grease and line a 21cm-round cake tin. In a large bowl beat spread and sugar until light and fluffy. Slowly add eggs and all the remaining ingredients except almonds. Stir until combined.
Step 3 Pour into prepared cake tin and scatter with almonds. Bake for 45 minutes until slightly brown on top and springy to touch. Serve warm with low-fat yoghurt.
Make it gluten-free: Use gluten-free varieties of baking mix and baking soda.
