Guava Cake

Recipe by Leahs Kitchen

An island treat! A simple and not too sweet cake I found off of and decided to post it here for ZWT5. Hope you enjoy it!

The batter for this was really thick, almost like cookie dough. The cake comes out nice and moist (not to mention deslicious) with the top almost crunchy cookie-like. The guava is divine. I made this in a loaf pan and it is more like 8 servings, unless you are a piggie like me!
