Mother’s Day

I have created a wee Mother’s Day display of some of our products so you create something sweet for you own mother

Including one of my favourite recipes: Feijoa, hazelnut and white chocolate cake (pictured on our glass cake stands), I will probably get into big trouble for sharing this recipe as many people have asked me for it over the years!

This is one of my favourite cakes as its fudgey and has beautiful flavours and texture, the top of the cake caramelises perfectly with the hazelnuts.  You can serve it dusted with icing sugar with coffee or warmed with french vanilla ice cream!

Feijoa, white chocolate and hazelnut cake


90g soft butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup white sugar

3 eggs

1 cup chopped hazelnuts

1 cup white chocolate, chopped

1 teaspoon of vanilla essence (check out the recipe here)

6-8 feijoas, peeled and mashed

1 cup milk

1 cup sifted flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 cup of extra brown sugar or raw sugar


Cream butter and sugars, add eggs one at a time

Fold in the vanilla essence and mashed feijoas

With a big spoon fold in the milk, flour and baking powder

When this is well mixed, fold in HALF of the hazelnuts and all of the white chocolate

Grease and line a 23cm tin (9 inch)

Pour the mixture into the tin

Sprinkle 1 cup of brown or raw sugar and the remaining hazelnuts on top of the cake

Bake 180°c, 40-45 minutes

Freshly brewed coffee and cake is perfect for morning or afternoon tea with your mother and/or children

I tried out the quilted glass jars on my expresso machine and the glass withstood the heat, (I would recommend wrapping a napkin around the jar though) which made me think ice coffees would be so lovely in these jars!
