Feijoa & Banana Loaf

If you're wondering what to do with the feijoas growing in your backyard, then this Feijoa & Banana Loaf is perfect! This loaf is so easy to make and is really tasty as an afternoon tea snack with a cup of tea.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp Gregg's Mixed Spice
  • 1 cup raw sugar
  • ¾ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 large bananas)
  • 1 cup chopped ripe feijoas (about 3-4 feijoas)

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 55-60 minutes

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (conventional bake). Grease and line the base of a 13cm x 23cm x 70 (6 cup capacity) loaf tin with baking paper.
  2. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and Gregg's Mixed Spice into a mixing bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl beat together raw sugar, oil, egg and mashed bananas to combine. Pour into the dry ingredients along with the chopped feijoas. Fold into the dry ingredients to mix.
  4. Pour into prepared loaf tin. Bake for 55 - 60 minutes until cooked. A skewer inserted into the middle of the loaf will come out clean.
  5. Leave in the tin to cool for 10 minutes before turning onto a cake rack to cool completely. Cut into slices to serve.
