Prep: 20 mins
Cook: 25 mins - 2 hr
250g butter, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups caster sugar
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
1/2 cup almond meal
1/4 cup flaked almonds
3/4 cup milk
2 1/4 cups self-raising flour, sifted
Icing sugar, to serve
2 large quinces, peeled, quartered, cored (see Note)
1 cup caster sugar
1 cinnamon quill
Make poached quinces: Place 3 cups (750ml) water and sugar in a medium saucepan. Stir over low heat until sugar dissolves. Add cinnamon and quince. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for 1 1/2 hours or until slightly pink and tender. Set aside to cool. Slice quince.
As quinces take time to cook, make a bigger batch and store covered in cooking syrup in the fridge for up to 10 days. Serve with ice-cream or Greek yoghurt for a quick dessert or with porridge for a special breakfast. You could also cook the quince in a pressure cooker. They should only take about 35 minutes on low pressure.
