WARM PEACH CAKE

I like the look of this dessert and can imagine it on a cold autumn night with lashings of thick cream. I can’t find a date on it, but the $5 cost makes me think that it isn’t too old. You should be able to make it for about that with canned peaches, but with the current price fresh ones would make it more expensive…..

QUINCES IN SPICED WINE SYRUP

When I was a kid stewed quinces appeared as a dessert each autumn. We didn’t have a quince tree so I’m guessing Mum was given them by a friend. Like most stewed fruit, Mum served them with a custard and ice cream, they needed a sweet topping as they were a bit tart. You don’t seem them around much these days, the only mention of quinces seems to be quince paste. If you do find some they’re worth trying out, either with spices like this recipe or stewed.
