Quince and Apple Butterscotch Sponge
Delicious desert
Recipe type: Desert
  • Sponge.
  • 130g self raising flour
  • 100g butter
  • pinch of salt
  • teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • 1 egg
  • 200 mil of milk
  • Butterscotch sauce
  • 100g brown sugar
  • 150 mil hot water
  • 2 tablespoons of golden syrup
  • Fruit.
  • Cut up into chunks one large quince and 1 large apple. You want to ¾ fill a shallow cooking dish so do more if you want and in whatever ratio of quince to apple you want. Look at photos.
  1. Add cut up fruit to a shallowish oven proof dish.
  2. Sprinkle over fruit with quite a bit of brown sugar as the fruit will need sweetening during cooking.
  3. Or alternatively you can put the fruit into a pot, cover with water and add sugar, bring to boil and then let sit until you are ready to assemble the desert. This saves the fruit from discolouring.
  4. Drain. Still cover the fruit with sugar in the bottom of the dish.
  5. Mix the egg, flour, vanilla, milk and the melted butter into a bowl and mix well into a runny batter.
  6. Pour the batter all over the fruit.
  7. heat in a pot the butterscotch ingredients and when all melted together pour over the top of the whole mixture. This will sink to the bottom during cooking.
  8. Sprinkle liberally brown sugar all over the top of the finished dish.
  9. Bake in a 180 c oven for 35 minutes.
  10. Serve with yogurt or cream.
