Guava with zesty Orange-Guava Frosting

It’s guava season and the heady aroma as you pass by carts laden with these delicious fruit can’t escape your notice.Besides don’t you just love seasonal fruit in a cupcake…

These guavas were from a fruit seller on Hill Road. I was in a hurry and walked past his cart, then stopped, back-tracked and picked up the biggest, most intoxicating of the lot he had…

Here are the ingredients –

3 – 4 guavas (scoop out the seeds and grate)

1 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon mixed spice

3/4 cup vegetable oil (or 3/4 cup melted butter)

3 large eggs

1 cup light brown sugar (packed)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees C for 20 – 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool the cupcakes completely on a wire rack before frosting.

And for the ‘Zesty Frosting’ you’ll need –

1 1/4 cups white powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon orange zest (grated)

2 1/2 tablespoons fresh orange juice

And the result….


Go on! Let me know what you think.
