Whilst on the subject of baking, my dad, Pete, used to make a Feijoa and coconut cake for the guys when we were frantically potting roses and it was so good.. I have to say that it was a fav with me as not only do I love feijoa, but coconut too. The other night, for Mother's Day dinner, I made Pete's cake myself for the first time... LOL don't often get time to bake... So, so good, check the link out and make it yourself, especially while we are all in a glut of fruiting feijoa.
