Autumn is upon us, and with it the scent of chestnuts, 1.000 recipes with pumpkin, glasses of red wine watching the rain outside the window, buses full of children going to school, the first wool sweaters that will softly embrace us, evenings spent in front of the TV, and of course my 22th Bday
I have to admit I love this new season coming..
So I propose to start open the oven and enjoy another ingredient still in between of summer and fall, the fig! This cake for me is amazing because it is very easy to do, not too sweet and sooo good that is perfect for breakfast but also as dessert!
- 250 grams of flour
- 130 grams of butter
- 80 grams of brown sugar
- 1 egg
- A bit of almond milk
- A teaspoon of vanilla powder
- A teaspoon of baking powder
- A bottle of jam figs (I used an organic jam with no added sugar because I don’t like sweet jams)
Mix together all the dry ingredients, then add the butter, the egg, the milk. Once you have done the dough live it in the fridge for 30 min. Butter a round baking pan and roll out the dough very thin because it will swell with the baking powder. Spread over the jam, if you want you can also add some slices of fresh fig (I didn’t have them) and then, add on the top some chopped walnuts.
In the oven at 180 degrees for 45 minutes…ready!!!
