I love the floral smell of quince!
We only have one tree so I try to make beautiful things with the few fruit we get. This is a Quince Upside-down Cake and it's divine!
I placed sliced quince and pats of butter on the bottom of the cake tin then poured in my usual spiced almond cake over the top.
I made a syrup out of the water I poached quince in yesterday containing star anise, cadamom pods, lemon peel, vanilla, cloves and a bit of honey. I poured the glaze over the cake once it was turned out.
If you are interested in the recipe I will post it on the blog tomorrow. Visit email@example.com and click on 'blog' at the top of the page.
