Recipe Description
Light and not too sweet, this easy cake makes the apple pear flavor of the quince really shine. For those months when quince is out of season, you can substitute applesauce for the quince sauce. The flavor of the cake will be less complex, but still delicious. Serve the spice cake alone as an unusual breakfast cake, or jazz it up for a dinnertime dessert with sweetened whipped cream or a spiced fruit compote.

Serves To:USMetric
1/4 Cup(c)  buttermilk
1/4 Cup(c)  canola oil
3/4 Cup(c)  quince sauce, or applesauce
1 Teaspoon(t)  lemon zest, finely grated
1/2 Cup(c)  sugar
1   large egg
1/2 Teaspoon(t)  chinese five spice powder
1 Teaspoon(t)  ginger, ground
1/2 Teaspoon(t)  salt
1/2 Teaspoon(t)  baking soda
1 Teaspoon(t)  baking powder
1 Cup(c)  unbleached all purpose flour
1 Slice(sli)  butter, for greasing the baking pan


Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350°F. Generously butter an 8 inch square baking pan, or a 5 by 9 inch loaf pan. Place the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger, and five-spice powder in a medium sized bowl and whisk to combine. Place the egg in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer until thick. Gradually add the sugar and lemon zest, and continue beating at medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the quince sauce, oil, and buttermilk and beat until just combined. Using a rubber spatula, fold the flour mixture into the egg mixture until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, spreading it evenly to the edges. Bake the cake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 40 to 50 minutes in a square pan, or 45 to 55 minutes in a loaf pan. Let the cake cool on a wire rack before turning it out and serving.
