As many people asked us for the recipe of our almond fig tart via Instagram, we thought we’d reconstruct the recipe share it with you guys.
Dario is a big fan of figs. He snacks on them at work and in front of the TV – doesn’t matter if they are dried or fresh. I myself am not all too fond of them. But we had some figs at home and I’ve seen great pictures of beautiful creations online and I wanted to surprise Dario with some dessert, he’d hopefully love. And after trying a piece, I was surprised myself, cause they taste really good on a cake.
So let’s get crackin’! Here’s what you’ll need to do:
5 dried or fresh figs
360g whole wheat flour or spelt flour (we prefer spelt)
150g brown sugar
150g ground almonds
2 dl almond milk
½ tablespoon salt (or a bit more if you like a bit of a contrast in your dessert)
1 teaspoon baking powder
some vegan margarine for the form
- Preheat your oven at 180°C
- Grease a 24cm form with some vegan margarine
- Mix all the dry ingredients well (flour, sugar, almonds, salt and baking powder)
- Add the milk and a dash of maple syrup to the dry ingredients. If you’d like a sweet cake, then add more maple syrup than if you prefer your cake not overly sweet
- Check the texture of your cake. Did you get a good batter? Then add the batter to the form and smoothen it out.
- Cut the figs in small round slices.
- Top the cake of with the figs
- Brush some maple syrup on the figs, so they caramelize while in the oven
- Bake for 50 – 60 minutes (check on the cake after a while to see that the figs don’t turn black)
- Enjoy with some whipped soy cream
