The Best Feijoa Crumble Cake

My best Feijoa Crumble Cake is a must-have dessert recipe. It is so easy to make and ready in no time.

Without a doubt, the Feijoa (aka Pineapple Guava) is one of my favorite fruits and the best way of eating it is either by scooping out the pulp with a spoon or by using it in baking, making ice cream, or even chutneys.

I am certain you’ll love my deliciously fruity Best Feijoa crumble cake with its buttery crumble topping.

Best of all, the Feijoa crumble cake is ready in only 25 minutes. You could also make a Feijoa crisp, which is even quicker.

Simply use my delicious Apple Crisp recipe and substitute the apples with the feijoas.

Feijoas are so easy to grow and I think everyone should grow one if they have a garden. The tree is evergreen with gorgeous flowers in spring and an abundance of fruit in autumn.

Once the feijoas fall from the tree they are ready to be eaten.

You can eat the Feijoa by cutting the fruit in half and scooping out the pulp with a spoon. If you can’t use the Feioas straight away, put the pulp into the freezer.

Extra tip: Don’t throw the skin away. You can make a refreshing fermented juice out of the Feijoa skin. Here is my easy-to-follow guide on how to do it.

Before baking

You’ll need 10 to 12 medium-sized Feijoas for our gorgeous Feijoa Crumble Cake recipe. Peel the skin with a sharp knife and cut the fruit into fairly thick slices.

There is no need to put any sugar or lemon juice on them. Set them aside once they are cut into slices until you are ready to use them.

One of our key ingredients for the crumble dough is ground almonds. It makes the crumbles so crispy and the butter adds the most beautiful buttery flavor. Oh, so good.

Use 2/3 of the crumble dough as the cake base. The remaining dough will be our crumble topping.
