Pasta frola (quince cake)

  • Sweet
  • Medium



This is a  typical Argentine preparation.  Since I can remember, my grandmother prepared it and today I am lucky to have an excellent recipe from Valeria. It is a quince cake, which is known as pasta frola.  It is important that we use a good sweet quince with dark tonality and good acidity. Here I left you the recipe.


For the mass

  • 300 gr of flour
  • 100 gr of cornstarch
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 250 gr of butter
  • 1 teaspoon of impeller (Royal powder)
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of water
  • Lemon zest
  • Vanilla extract

For the filling

  • 500 gr of quince jam
  • 2 tablespoons of red wine


  1. Place the dry ingredients in a bowl  We make a hole in the center and incorporate the rest of the ingredients and then mix with the tips of the fingers.
  2. We add the water, remember that the water is just a trickle, which will help us make the dough easier to handle. We knead until we achieve a homogeneous mass.
  3. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  4. Cut the quince into small cubes and place in a saucepan. Just add the wine and bring to medium heat.
  5. Mix until the quince is well creamy.
  6. The dough is very easy to work, we just have to  cut small pieces of dough and spread them with your hands all over the base of the mold.
  7. We just have to take the frola pasta out of the oven and have the patience until it cools and then  tell me what you think.
