Easy to make and tastes great! Followed directions exactly, will add more applesauce next time, this is a very dense cake. I made in a bundt pan as suggested; used lime juice in the glaze and Splenda Blend in batter instead of sugar. We love lime it compliments anything! DH kept saying "Wow!"...he's cuban. LOL. Great way to enjoy guava! I'll have to make this for his parents next time they visit. Suggestion: change serving size to 10 or 12...it will bring the counts down a lot. Thanks Muffin!!

Absolutely delicious. I will make this again and again! For the glaze I used lime juice as I simply adore guava and lime! This is a great make ahead cake. I made it 3 days ago and it is still just as delicious! I am begging all of you to try this!!!

This was yummy! I made it in a bundt pan, exactly as written. It's quite heavy but very moist.

I love Guava and this cake did not disappoint! The applesauce did the trick as this cake was not dry at all. It had a pretty ribbon of guava in the cake and I controlled myself to just 2 pieces tonight and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I won't attack it in the middle of the night. It would be great for brunch or sered with coffee or tea any time of the day. Thanks Muffin- You made me one happy cow!

I made this cake taking the chef's suggestion that additional applesauce could be used. If you've never had guava, do yourself a favor and try this cake. I don't know how to explain how surprisingly good guava paste is. If you've had it then I don't need to tell you. The applesauce gave the batter a really nice fresh flavor. The cake came out quite dense, like poundcake, and delicious. Thanks for posting.

This cake is fantastic. I used lemon juice for the glaze. The contrast of the sour and the sweet was great. great recipe
