French Baking: Fig Cake Recipe

A fig cake recipe that makes you hungry. With this fig cake recipe we made yesterday that French baking is also fun at home France tested. If you feel the same way as we do, you get the taste of your travel destinations in your own kitchen every now and then. We were on one in the spring of this year River cruise along the Rhone from Lyon and Avignon on the way to the Camargue.

On this trip we looked at markets and always experienced special moments of enjoyment in the cities en route. Lyon and Avignon offer a lot for everyone who likes to experience French specialties and the savoir vivre of our neighboring country. For those who can't do that at the moment, cooking at home offers opportunities to enjoy the taste of the cuisines of France. French baking at home is fun. This recipe is a good opportunity to do that, as we tried during our afternoon break. A hot chocolate with cinnamon and whipped cream tastes great with this.



Convert international units of measurement

A tip: In international recipes, units of measurement are often given such as “cups”, “ounces”, “shots”, “gallons” or “pounds” in English. In this recipe it is "cups". I rarely have the conversion values ​​in my head. So I started looking for tools to convert the quantities for ingredients. I came across these conversion calculators for cooking ingredients, which I find very helpful. Here you can quickly convert all possible units of measurement into the dimensions you need for your recipes. I use that Ingredients conversion from Cooking Schools.

Fig cake recipe - French baking

Ingredients for this fig cake recipe

  • two cups of flour
  • a cup of ground almonds
  • one cup of sugar
  • a cup of yogurt
  • a half cup of oil
  • three eggs
  • half a bag of baking soda
  • a teaspoon of bitter almond flavor
  • seven fresh figs
  • forty grams of sugar under the figs in the pan


How to prepare the fig cake recipe – Easy French Baking

I used a yogurt cup as a cup. You can also use a cup that is about this size.

Brush a round cake pan with butter or cover the ground with baking paper. We do this to save butter and prevent the cake from sticking to the pan.

Mix the flour, almonds, sugar and baking powder thoroughly.

Then add yogurt, oil, eggs, bitter almond oil and then mix it thoroughly. I have for example olive oil used. However, other oils that are more tasteless are also possible.

Cut the figs into slices about a centimeter thick. Sprinkle the sugar on the bottom of the cake tin and spread the figs tightly across the bottom of the cake tin. Then pour the dough over it and then smooth it out.

Bake the fig cake in a preheated oven at 180° for thirty to forty minutes. The baking time depends on the size of your measuring cup and the size of the cake pan.

This recipe definitely makes French baking fun and easy to do.
