The cake is spongy and springy full of flavours and the goodness and the bite of almonds. A great addition to my list of rustic cakes.

Ingredients Serving: 8

  1. 4 figs.
  2. 75 ml coffee.
  3. 100 gm almond meal.
  4. 200 gm soft butter.
  5. 225 gm soft brown sugar.
  6. 200 gm all purpose flour.
  7. 2 tsp baking powder.
  8. 2 tsp vanilla bean paste.
  9. 2 tsp mixed spice. ( ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg)
  10. 50 gm strained yoghurt.
  11. Pinch of salt.
  12. 4 eggs
  13. Whiskey caramel glaze. 1/2 cup butter. 1 cup soft brown sugar. 1/2 cup heavy cream.
  14. Nice pinch of salt .1/4 cup cup good quality whiskey. fresh figs and strawberries.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degree C. Make the coffee and soak the 4 figs for half hour and puree. Sift all dry ingredients and keep aside.
  2. Cream butter and sugar and gradually add and mix the eggs, yoghurt, fig coffee puree, vanilla and almond meal. Fold in the dry mixture in two batches.
  3. Since i used a rectangular tart tin for this cake i had leftover batter for a 6 by 6 inch round tin as well. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or till skewer comes out clean.
  4. Cool completely and top with the figs and strawberries and roasted almonds.
  5. One could use half of 1/4 cup as it can be strong for many or you can omit if you don't prefer the alcohol.
  6. Except for the whiskey bring the rest of the ingredients to a good boil. Take it off the heat and add the alcohol.
  7. This can be used for pouring on the cake while serving. Alternatively u can shallow roast the figs with the glaze in a pan for not less than 2 to 3 minutes on high heat.
