Guava Cake

Recipe by Muffin Goddess
READY IN: 1hr 10mins




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease a 10-inch springform pan or ring mold.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar together.
  • Add eggs, one by one, beating thoroughly.
  • Add applesauce and vanilla, and mix well.
  • Sift flour and baking powder together in a separate bowl.
  • Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture until fully blended.
  • Spread half the cake batter in greased pan.
  • Top with guava paste, taking care not to place paste against pan sides (it will melt and spread once baked).
  • Top with remaining cake batter, covering guava paste.
  • Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean (except for the guava paste).
  • Mix ingredients for glaze until smooth, and pour over warm cake.
  • Allow to cool before serving, as filling will be extremely hot (not good to incinerate your tester's taste buds - you will lose tasting volunteers that way!).
