Back To Work Tomorrow = Less Feijoa Fun

I had to make up for the lack of feijoa-related activity yesterday, so I went wild this morning!

I baked this recipe for a feijoa, ginger and coconut loaf (my love affair with ginger continues).  The only thing I'd do differently next time is a touch less ginger (I used 2 tbsp - I'd use 1 1/2) or a heaped cup of coconut.  I can't really taste the coconut, and the ginger is super strong (but I do like it!)

Mini-loaf lovin.
I made 6 mini loaves + 1 almost loaf - the recipe makes a lot!  Cooking time was about 20 minutes less than the recipe called for.

A small slice with a dollop of Greek Honey yogurt.  Divine!
See?  Div.  Ine.
And because that wasn't enough, as it baked in the oven and I chatted on the phone with my mum and sister-in-law, I just whipped up another batch of the amazing feijoa, vanilla and ginger jam (as you do.)

I think I'm a bit in love with the combination of feijoa and ginger... How sad I have to go back to work tomorrow!  There are still so many recipes to play with! 


  1. you might want to try a smidge of coconut extract to boost the flavour...I added some to flavourless banana coconut pancakes and it made a huge difference

    1. Thanks for the suggestion, Katie! I may give it a try next time. :)
