Quandong cake

“Also known as the native peach or desert peach, quandong stands above so many others as one of my favourite native fruits. Quandong for many Indigenous nations is an ancient and sacred fruit. It has a pleasant sweet-acid taste and firm texture. Quandongs are available fresh, dried or frozen and as with many native ingredients, quandongs are a rich antioxidant and a high source of vitamins and minerals. We think you’ll love it in this simple yet delicious cake.” – Mindy Woods (Please see notes for advice about sourcing dried quandongs and substituting if you are unable to find them.)
