Quince sweet cake: recipe to give a twist to this seasonal fruit

I love having a homemade cake for breakfast, that's why I try to try different recipes and rarely repeat, although with this quince jelly cake I think it will be difficult not to prepare it again because it has been a delicious mixture.

On this occasion, taking advantage of the fact that in the autumn I always make a good quantity of quince jelly quickly and easily, I have added one tacos to the dough that means that if this formula already resulted in a sponge cake with a tender and very soft crumb , even more so.

  • Chemical yeast, 2 teaspoons
  • Olive oil 150 ml
  • Egg 3
  • Orange juice 1
  • Quince candy 150 g

How to make quince jelly cake

Difficulty: easy
  • Total time 1 h 5 m
  • Elaboration 20 m
  • Cooking 45 m

We will start by greasing an elongated baking sheet with the teaspoon of butter. We preheat the oven with heat up and down to 175 degrees Celsius.

With a grater we grate the peel of the orange and the lemon. We squeeze the orange and reserve its juice. Mix the sugar with the zest and rub it so that it is well impregnated with the citrus oils. We also mix the flour together with the salt and the chemical yeast.

In a bowl we mix the olive oil, the beaten eggs and the orange juice, we beat everything together and add to the dry ingredients, uniting everything well until we form a smooth and smooth paste. We cut the quince jelly into cubes of similar size.

Add a third of the dough in the mold, add a third of the quince cubes on top. We repeat this operation, making two more layers of dough and quince. Bake for forty-five minutes or until when we puncture the cake with a toothpick it comes out clean. Let it rest for a while in the mold and remove so that it finishes cooling on a rack.
