Fig and walnut cake

Fig and walnut cake

Ingredients for 6:

110 gr self-raising flour

450 g walnut meal

200 g figs

100 g sugar

1 tablespoon of honey

100 g butter + a knob to grease the cake tin

3 eggs

A pinch of salt

Walnut kernels to decorate

Icing sugar to decorate

Sieve the flour and meal together. Wash the figs and cut them into small pieces.

Melt the butter in a bain-marie or microwave for a few seconds.

Pour the butter into a large bowl, add the sugar, the honey and blend with an electric hand mixer. Then add the eggs one at a time while carrying on whisking. When the eggs are well blended and frothy, add the flour, a pinch of salt and continue to whisk.

Add the figs, mixing gently with a spatula from top to bottom.

Pour the mixture into a greased cake tin and bake in an oven pre-heated to 180° for about 40 minutes.

Once the cake is ready, leave it to cool before removing it from the tin. Decorate with a dusting of icing sugar and some walnut kernels.
