Recipe for gluten free feijoa cake or similar?

I'm to host my writing group on Friday afternoon and some of the others provide marvellous afternoon teas. Somehow I manage but never very well. One of our members is gluten free . so I wonder if anyone has a recipe for a feijoa cake/slice/whatever using gluten free flour? I prefer honey to sugar. I have lots of feijoas just now.

How about something savoury? I made the mistake once of spreadiing cheese on crackers an hour or two before we were due to have afternoon tea, so they were soggy. Any other ideas for someone who isn't a natural cook?

I'm not sure that there are any gluten-free options on the following link but there are lots of interesting recipes for using feijoas:-

Venna, I made a banana bread the other day that i converted to banana and feijoa bread and it was delicious. Even the non-GF people really liked it. I halved the recipe to just make 1 loaf - and used two bananas and two large mashed feijoas.

Gluten-Free Banana Bread Recipe

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min. + cooling
MAKES: 24 servings (2 loaves)
Ingredients
• 2 cups gluten-free all-purpose baking flour
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 4 eggs
• 2 cups mashed ripe bananas (4-5 medium)
• 1 cup sugar
• 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (I used mashed feijoas)
• 1/3 cup canola oil
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (I used toasted hazelnuts)
I also added chocolate chips
Directions
1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, bananas, sugar, applesauce, oil and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
2. Transfer to two 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with walnuts. Bake at 180°C for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
