The Cake of fig with Walnut is a delicious dessert, easy to make and perfect for this period of late summer / early autumn when the small and sweet September figs are available. It is a soft cake, moist at the right point and at the same time crunchy, thanks to the crust that forms on the surface during cooking thanks to the sugar distributed above. This dessert is excellent to be enjoyed at breakfast together with a good coffee or latte, as well as as a snack, accompanied by a nice iced or hot tea.
As an alternative (or in addition) to walnuts, you can opt for almonds or, for the sweet tooth, even chocolate chips. To make it you can use the mould you prefer or that you have available at the moment, thus deciding whether to make a doughnut, a plumcake, muffin etc. The important thing is to consider that cooking times vary according to the mould chosen! The best way to store it is to keep it in the fridge wrapped in cling film, and then heat it for a moment in the microwave before enjoying it! Now let’s see the preparation together.
