Fig honey Cake
Figs are in season now!! So, I am excited to bake something sweet and to come up with a recipe with figs being the hero! It is a great use of figs :)
Ripe figs should be soft and fragrant, and when you cut into them, the flesh should be juicy and vibrant.
So, I thought a fresh fig cake would sound perfect!
It's moist with a sturdy texture and pleasant, subtle fig flavor. Flavored with cinnamon, and vanilla.
A whipped cream and drizzle of honey is added to echo flavors inside the cake, and grind pistachios are sprinkled on top :)
My Husband usually, enjoy eating it with coffee for breakfast at the early mornings, saying its a yummy dish to start his day with!
Now for the recipe,
