Step 1 Preheat oven to 160°C. Base line a slice pan with greaseproof paper. Place flour, polenta, sugar and baking powder in a bowl with lemon zest. Rub in spread until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add egg and enough water to bind mixture.

Step 2 Press half the mixture over the base of prepared pan and press down gently. Arrange feijoas and pears on top. Press down lightly.

Step 3 Sprinkle with remaining mix and press down. Sprinkle with flaked almonds. Bake for 40 minutes until lightly golden brown and firm to touch. Cool then slice in even-sized pieces.

HFG tip

Make it gluten free: Use gluten-free flour and baking powder.
