Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 150C. Combine 350gm sugar, dessert wine, verjuice, rinds, juices, vanilla bean and seeds with 1 cup water in a saucepan and stir over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves, add muslin-wrapped tea and bring to the boil. Transfer to a small roasting pan. Peel and core quinces (reserving skins and core), cut into 8 wedges and add to syrup, cover with baking paper and weigh down with reserved skins and cores.

Fold one-third of eggwhite mixture into quince purée to lighten, then fold in remaining eggwhite mixture.

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until risen and golden, dust with icing sugar and serve with remaining quince and syrup passed separately.
