Feijoa cake - inside moist

rayonline_tm, May 19, 5:00am
Is this the way it is? I tried it twice. The second time I extended cooking time. I used 4 feijoas when it asked for 1.5 cups.

Cheers.

Most feijoa cakes are moist. Do you mean gluggy or raw?
Would help to see the recipe.

gluggy :)

After it cools on a rack it shrinks back down.

too wet, more flour and raising agent.

lol, I have that book marked to make.
That doesn't look like a cake with 2 cups of flour in it.
Was the consistency right before you baked it, and did you remember the baking soda?

rayonline_tm, May 19, 8:26am
Yep I used baking soda 1 teaspoon with 2 tablespoon with hot milk. it was added just before the flour after the creaming the sugar / button, the feijoa and the 2 eggs. I still remember it lol.

2C of flour yes. I used 4 feijoas without measuring including the skin pulsed in the processor. Too much?

The flour is the Value Flour from Pak N Save. 5kg bag. I used the NZ classical glass measuring cup. 2C right to the top.

Hmmm . the baking soda expired 2016. Have another opened one that expires next year.

The baking soda should have 'fizzed' in the warm milk. If it didn't then it's probably had it.

rayonline_tm, May 19, 9:32am
Ok . I tested my baking soda with white vinegar. The one that is expired didn't fizz. The other one did. It was just like water. Did nothing.

I googled it. Baking powder with warm water and baking soda with white vinegar :) Now to a 3rd take. Haha.

Good luck.
I'm sure it will be a success this time.
The other ones would still have been nice with some custard or icecream for dessert.

Tried this one with fresh baking soda. Success. Lol.

I made that recipe recently, its easy to make but we think it needs a bit more 'something' not too sure what yet, but it was a bit lacking flavour.

I add ground ginger to my feijoa loaves.
