Fresh fig and almond cake















  • Lightly toast the powdered almonds and then the flaked almonds in a dry frying pan.
  • Preheat the oven to 180°, and sieve together the dry ingredients.  
  • Whisk the eggs and sugars together, until light and fluffy – 5 to 10 minutes in a processor.  
  • Incorporate the yoghurt with a spatula, then fold in the dry ingredients.  Mix well, lifting the mixture with the spatula to aerate it.   
  • Add the melted butter, mix again, still lifting the mixture with the spatula.  
  • Pour into the lined cake tin.  Place the figs, pressing them down into the mix.  Sprinkle a few flaked almonds over the top and bake for 35 minutes, reducing the temperature to 170° after 20 minutes.
  • Allow to cool in the tin. 




 So better a day later.
