I discovered this cake when Joe and I first moved in together and got access to his cookbooks. He also made an amazing seared Ahi dish for me on our third date from this same cookbook, so I was very curious to try more recipes from it. Well, I have been waiting 8 years to make this cake for any special occasion but never got the chance or was always picking the wrong season to try to find Quince (which is what the original recipe calls for). Well, I finally got the chance this September just before our 8-year anniversary to make this cake and truly enjoyed and cherished every moment of it.
