Quince Crumble

Crumble Ingredients

300g plain flour 1 egg

150g sugar 1 tsp baking powder

100g butter Pinch salt

Crumble Method

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Lightly grease and line large spring form (22 – 24cm) with baking paper.

Place flour, baking powder and salt into the bowl and mix for 10 seconds on speed 6.

Add remaining crumble ingredients and mix for 5 – 7 seconds on speed 6 to make crumble.

Transfer half of the mixture into the base of the spring form and press down firmly with the back of a spoon. Set

the remaining mixture aside in a separate bowl.

Filling Ingredients

5 – 6 quinces peeled, cored and roughly cut 1 tsp vanilla essence

250g sugar 2 tbsp of water

1tsp of cinnamon

Filling Method

Place all the filling ingredients into the bowl. Cook for 25 – 30 minutes, 100°C on speed 1.

Place the filling on the top of the crumble base and top with remaining crumble. Bake for approximately 45

minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven, allow to slightly cool, then remove from the tin. The colour

of the quince filling will be beautiful ruby red, autumn coloured and intense in flavour. Serve with Thermomix

Custard or Crème Anglaise.

General Tips

 Try using half quinces and half apples.

 Quantity of fruit can be increased, sugar is to taste and cooking time might have to be increased for further

5 to 8 minutes.

 Quinces are hard; peel them with potato peeler and use strong knife when cutting. They get quickly

discoloured after peeling but this does not matter as they change their colour once cooked.

 Do not store them in the fridge as their aroma will affect other food in the fridge. They store well at room

    This recipe was a great success. I loved the way the crumble works for the base as well as the topping. I thought it may not hold together, but it did beautifully. I was also worried that the ‘pie’ would not hold its shape once the springform pan was removed, but again I was pleased to note that it held together. (I had let it cool for several hours)
    I cooked mine for an hour, but the quince was not a ruby red colour after this time. Next time I will cook for longer at a slightly lower temperature.
    A very nice way to use up some quinces.

    I followed this recipe and it turned out great! Quickly “crumbled” together, wonderful flavour! When reading through the instructions, I could not imagine how big and hard quince chunks could cook into a filling in the TMX-bowl in this short time – but they do nicely!! Wow. Amazing, how the crumble holds together its shape. I, for my taste, think about also adding some cinnamon to the crumble mix… Everybody loved the cake – even more the next day.
