Fig Tart/Cakey Thingy
« on: March 13, 2017, 04:06:32 am »
When it is a fig kind of day and guests are coming! A very easy but impressive cake/tart thingy!

Fig Tart/Cakey Thingy

Ingredients
120g butter, chopped and at room temp
160g raw almonds
60g sugar (+ a little extra)
45g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Pinch of salt
3 eggs
30g honey
As many figs as you like

Method:
1. Place almonds and sugar into the tmx bowl and mix 6 seconds/Speed 9
2. Add flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt, mix 4 seconds/Speed 4 Scrape this mixture into another bowl and set aside (try to get as much of the mix out of the bowl as possible, but a few specks left inside is fine)
3. Melt the butter 3min/50degrees/Speed1. Stop the machine if the butter is melted before time is up, we don't want it too hot as we don't want to scramble the eggs!
4. Meanwhile chop the figs in half
5. As long as the mix isn't too hot, add the eggs and honey mix 15sec/Speed4
6. Add the almond mixture and mix 4sec/sSpeed4. Use the spatula to give a final light stir.
7. Pour the mixture into a greased 25cm (or thereabouts) flan tin, sprinkle the figs with a little bit of sugar and then bake in a moderate oven for 25-30minutes or until golden on top.

That looks very nice Jamberie. I guess you could use any type of fruit.

I thought the same thing Cookie 😀 Berries, plums, apricots would be great!

Wish I bought more figs at the market now, they had a kg of cooking figs  for $5. Hope they have more next week. Then I can make this.
I child-proofed my house, but they still get in!

I hope so too Jeninwa! But if not, most other fruits will suffice 😀

I had a container of figs given to me today, most of them quite ripe so they didn't appreciate being dropped onto the garage floor when I arrived home. I might have to make this recipe myself.  I take it it will freeze OK?

Looks great KAtie 😀 I love seeing when things we post turn out for others!

Judy, it's a friand type texture so should be ok to freeze, it will depend on how the figs cope I think 😀

I've just taken it out of the oven Jamberie, looks and smells great.  I'll take a slab into the lady who gave me the figs.  Unfortunately it's my fasting day today so I won't be able to try it myself until tomorrow. Such an easy recipe, thanks for your entry into the competition with this one.
