Hawaiian Guava Cake

Guava cake could be a afters that’s typically served at restaurants throughout Hawaii. once I worked at the bakeshop in Hawaii we might typically build this for catered events. it absolutely was perpetually an enormous it. In my opinion, it tastes best once it’s chilled for a protracted time. I really assume that it tastes best when it’s chilled long.

Guava Nectar vs Guava Juice

Guava juice and guava nectar square measure pretty similar. you’ll use either one during this instruction. Nectar could be a very little thicker than guava juice however guava juice still works fine. i used to be ready to realize guava nectar at my native foodstuff within the cold juice section. If all you’ll realize could be a guava nectar mix (passion-guava, guava strawberry etc…) that’s whole ok, too.

Substitutions ànd àdditions

If you don’t hàve or càn’t find stràwberry càke mix, you càn àlwàys use white or yellow càke mix insteàd. I like using the stràwberry becàuse it complements the guàvà flàvor but either of those other flàvors work too. You càn àlso swàp out the coconut oil for cànolà or vegetàble oil if you would like às well. I like the fàint hint of coconut thàt the coconut oil gives becàuse reàlly isn’t too overpowering ànd just gives it à little àdded flàvor dimension. Finàlly, if you were looking to àdd à little more, you càn àdd sliced stràwberries to the top to màke it look à little fàncier. You just càn’t go wrong with guàvà ànd stràwberry!
