Jump to Comments

With a plentiful supply of autumn feijoas there are many recipes to make…



Makes about 14


3 cups GF baking flour

2 tsp GF baking powder

2 tsp guar gum

½ cup caster sugar

3 eggs

¼ cup canola oil

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 ½ cups of feijoa flesh (about 12-13 medium feijoa)

1 cup milk


Citrus Glaze:

2 T caster sugar

2 T orange, lime or lemon juice

finely grated rind of half an orange, or one lemon or lime


Preheat oven to 180oC.  Lightly grease muffin tins.  Sift flour, baking powder, and guar gum into a large bowl.  Stir though sugar, then make a well in the centre.  Add eggs, oil, milk, feijoa and vanilla essence, beat well.  Spoon into muffin tins until ¾ full.  Fanbake for about 15 minutes or until cooked.  Simmer glaze ingredients together until the sugar is dissolved.  Brush over warm muffins. Once cooled, then remove to a cooling rack.
