It came out absolutely perfect! If you increase the guava paste by 1/4 cup and the baking soda by 1/4 tsp it will be super moist.



My mother and I made this guava cake recently in Hawaii, where you'll find that most guava cakes are light and spongey, with a natural tinge of guava-pink. This particular recipe yielded a moist, sweet, orange-colored cake that was almost like banana bread. This cake was especially good the next morning for breakfast, sliced like bread and slathered with a bit of butter. Few people, even in Hawaii, are likely to find fresh guavas, however. Try guava paste from specialty food stores. Enjoy! Aloha!

born and raised in Hawaii, i am addicted to guava cake. i gave this recipe to a friend in Hawaii, it is so easy to make because guava's grow on every corner of the streets on the Big Island. it was a hit!, it was different than the original "Hawaiian Guava Cake", the original is Pink and very fluffy, almost like an Angel Food Cake tecture. But, this was delicious as well...
