Recipe's preparation

    Cake mix
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees and grease tart tin.

    toast hazelnuts for 6mins/VAROMA/spd1/ rev.

    allow to cool, then grind for 30 sec/spd9-set aside.

    place sugar and orange peel into the bowl, process spd10/5sec.

    add 2 of the figs to the bowl and roughly chop for  2sec//spd4

    add flour, butter, egg + egg white, masala and preground nuts, mix on spd4/10sec/reverse.

    pour batter into the prepared tart tin.

    cut remaining figs into 6 pieces each and place skin side down onto top of cake batter.

    bake for 40-45 mins or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.

    allow to cool slightly before removing from pan.

    drizzle with honey just before serving with either cream or marscapone.





If made when figs are in season ( around March-so great as an easter cake or dessert), this will be more economical to make.

    A disappointing dessert tmrc_emoticons.( It came put looking flat And really unappealing. Perhaps it should have SR Flour instead of plain flour? I'm not sure why you would use a whole egg AND an egg white.
