FIG AND ALMOND CAKE



Fig and Almond Cake image

Figs are baked into an almond batter for this rustic cake to have with coffee or tea. With figs, ripeness is everything. A ripe fig (the object of your desire) is soft, yielding, beginning to crack, nearly wrinkled. When you cut into it, the flesh is bright and juicy and the taste is ethereal.

Time 1h

Yield 1 9-inch cake

Number Of Ingredients 11

4 tablespoons butter, melted, plus butter for greasing pan
1 cup natural raw almonds (not blanched)
1/4 cup sugar, plus 2 tablespoons for sprinkling
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
12 to 14 ripe figs

Steps:

  • Heat oven to 375 degrees. Butter a 9-inch fluted tart pan or pie pan; set aside. Put almonds and 1/4 cup sugar in a food processor and grind to a coarse powder. Add flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt; pulse to combine.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, melted butter, honey and almond extract. Add almond mixture and beat for a minute until batter is just mixed. Pour batter into pan.
  • Remove stem from each fig and cut in half. Arrange fig halves cut-side up over the batter. Sprinkle figs with sugar and bake for 30 minutes, until golden outside and dry at center when probed with a cake tester. Cool before serving.

UPSIDE-DOWN FRESH FIG CAKE



Upside-Down Fresh Fig Cake image

Another appealing fig recipe from The Times-Picayune. Our area is full of fig trees - heavy with fruit not yet ripe. Many folks do not even eat their figs anymore! I am glad to help them out!! The article noted that dried figs reconstituted with hot water can be substituted if fresh figs are not available.

Categories     Dessert

Time 1h10m

Yield 6 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 11

12 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 tablespoons honey
10 fresh figs, stems removed, cut in half
1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
1/2 cup whole milk

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9-inch cake pan with 2-inch sides. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper and butter the parchment.
  • In a small saucepan over medium-low heat or in the microwave, melt 4 tablespoons of the butter. Stir in the brown sugar and honey until smooth. Pour the sauce into the prepared cake pan. Arrange the figs, cut sides down, in concentric circles over the sauce. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the remaining 8 tablespoons butter with sugar and vanilla until lightened in color and texture, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the eggs 1 at a time, beating until well combined after each. Beating on low speed just until combined after each addition, add dry ingredients in 3 parts, alternating with the milk in 2 parts. Spoon the batter evenly over the figs.
  • Bake the cake until golden and a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, 45 to 55 minutes. Transfer the cake to a rack and cool in the pan for 50 minutes.
  • Run a thin knife around the sides of the pan to loosen. Place a serving platter on top of the pan and invert the cake. Gently lift off the pan and remove the parchment paper. Spoon over the cake any of the sauce that has run off, and serve warm.

22 FAST AND EASY FIG RECIPES - THE SPRUCE EATS

From thespruceeats.com
  • Bacon-Wrapped Figs. Figs and bacon are a match made in heaven—the sweet and salty complement each other beautifully—and this recipe is a perfect example of how simple is best.
  • Blue Cheese-Stuffed Figs. This tasty appetizer looks like you spent a lot of time preparing it, but all you need is just 10 minutes to assemble and cook.
  • Figs in Spiced Syrup. When you have figs that aren't as sweet as you'd expect, it's a good idea to cook them in a sweet syrup and make them almost preservelike, perfect for adding them to pancakes, waffles, sandwiches, or pairing with cheese.
  • Fig Coulis. This recipe for fig coulis is good on pretty much anything. Spread it on bread to add a sweet note to sandwiches, use it to top focaccia and add nuts and a drizzle of honey, serve it on the side with roasted meats, including your next holiday turkey, or put it on a charcuterie plate.
  • Fig Crostini. This pretty appetizer never gets old, as it has many variations. Start with tossed figs in olive oil and balsamic, and place on top of warm crusty baguette.
  • Honey-Fried Figs. These chewy and sticky figs are a delicious dessert by themselves but can be included in other preparations as well. They are also simple to make—just mix honey, butter, and figs in a pan, cook until soft, and serve hot.
  • Figs in Brandy. This flavorful dessert would be the ideal grand finale at any dinner party. Fresh figs are cooked in a simple syrup until soft and then drizzled with a spiced brandy and sherry sauce.
  • Labneh Stuffed Figs. Labneh is a yogurt cheese made by straining the yogurt of most of its liquid. This recipe teaches you how to make this versatile cheese, which you can then use in other recipes in lieu of mascarpone or soft ricotta.
  • Fig Jam With Wine and Balsamic Vinegar. If you have a surplus of figs, this recipe will come in handy. The flavor from the red wine and balsamic vinegar make this jam perfect for cheese plates and preparations with pork and game meats.
  • Fresh Fig Jam. Homemade fresh fig jam is wonderful for spreading on crostini, adding to cheese boards, and folding into sauces and dressings. Even better, it is as easy as simmering figs, sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest until the mixture reaches the gel stage, which is just over an hour.
