Steps to make Quince and Marzipan Cake

1

In a large saucepan, combine boiling water and caster sugar and bring to a boil. Allow to bubble for a couple of minutes until sugar dissolves.

Add quince slices to the pot and top with more water so they are just covered.

1h

Cut a circle of baking parchment paper to fit over the quinces in the pot, and pierce a 1-inch hole in the centre. Place over the quinces, touching the water and turn the heat down to a gentle simmer. Gently simmer for an hour or so, until the quinces are tender but still holding their shape.

5

2

Remove from the liquid with a slotted spoon and place on chopping board. Slice 3 or 4 segments, lengthwise, into 3 pieces so you end up with longer, slender pieces and chop the rest of the segments into 2cm dice. Set to dry on a piece of kitchen paper towel.

Preheat the oven to 190 °C (fan oven) and grease a 25cm cake tin or fluted tart tin with butter and line it with baking parchment paper.

In a separate bowl whisk the melted butter, eggs and buttermilk to combine.

Combine all ingredients

2

Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients and gently mix, using a spatula, to combine. Do not over mix.

Add quince and marzipan

2

Add quince cubes and marzipan into the mixture and fold together to evenly disperse.

11
