French Baking: Fig Cake Recipe

A fig cake recipe that makes you hungry. With this fig cake recipe we made yesterday that French baking is also fun at home France tested. If you feel the same way as we do, you get the taste of your travel destinations in your own kitchen every now and then. We were on one in the spring of this year River cruise along the Rhone of Lyon leads over Avignon on the way to the Camargue.

On this trip we looked at markets and repeatedly experienced special moments of pleasure in the cities en route. Lyon and Avignon offer a lot for everyone who likes to experience French specialties and the savoir vivre of our neighboring country. For those who just can't do that, the home kitchen offers opportunities to enjoy the taste of French kitchens. French baking at home is fun. This recipe is a good opportunity for that, as we tried on our afternoon break. A hot chocolate with cinnamon and whipped cream tastes good with it.



Convert international units of measurement

A tip: In international recipes, units of measurement are often given such as “cups”, “ounces”, “shots”, “gallons” or “pounds” in English. In this recipe it is "cups". I rarely have the conversion values ​​in my head. So I started looking for tools to convert the quantities for ingredients. I came across these conversion calculators for cooking ingredients, which I find very helpful. Here you can quickly convert all possible units of measurement into the dimensions you need for your recipes. I use that Ingredients conversion from Cooking Schools.

Ingredients for this fig cake recipe

  • two cups of flour
  • a cup of ground almonds
  • one cup of sugar
  • a cup of yogurt
  • a half cup of oil
  • three eggs
  • half a bag of baking soda
  • a teaspoon of bitter almond flavor
  • seven fresh figs
  • forty grams of sugar under the figs in the pan



How To Prepare The Fig Cake Recipe - Simple French Baking

As a cup, I used a yogurt cup. You can also use a cup that is about as big.

Brush a round cake pan with butter or cover the ground with baking paper. We do this to save butter and prevent the cake from sticking to the pan.

Mix flour, almonds, sugar and baking soda thoroughly.

Then you add yoghurt, oil, eggs, bitter almond oil and mix it thoroughly. I have olive oil used. However, other oils that are more tasteless are also possible.

Cut the figs in about one centimeter thick slices. Sprinkle sugar on the bottom of the cake pan and spread the figs closely on the bottom of the cake pan. Then pour the dough over it and smooth it out.

Bake the fig cake for thirty to forty minutes at 180 ° C (XNUMX ° F) in a preheated oven. The baking time depends on the size of your measuring cup and the size of the cake pan.

With this recipe, French baking is fun, and it guarantees instant success.
