Expert Tips

This cake can be prepared with simple cake mixes that are sold in supermarkets, or you can purchase a ready-to-serve loaf, which usually comes sliced.

Guayaba agria or sour guava is abundant in the fields of tropical countries like Colombia, and it’s typically used for preparing delicious juices. In my family we use this fruit for desserts; it combines perfectly with a sweet sauce made with vanilla, egg yolks, milk and raisins. This simple recipe is great for accompanying a cup of tea, or if you want to make the evening even more Colombian, enjoy with a good cup of coffee.

Directions

  • 1 Pre-heat the oven to 200°F.
  • 2 Separate the yolks from the egg whites, then beat the egg whites until soft peaks begin to form.
  • 3 In a saucepan over low heat, mix the milk, raisins, cornstarch, egg yolks and vanilla extract. Cook until a thick sauce forms.
  • 4 In a glass baking dish, pour a little guava juice and cover with few slices of cake to form the first layer. Then add-on some of the prepared sauce and cover with a second layer of cake slices. Continue alternating the layers as desired.
  • 5 When finished, spread the stiff egg whites over the entire surface of the cake and bake for 15 minutes. Afterward, let the cake cool; refrigerate for 20 minutes before serving.
