Figs are in season. I have been eating fig aka anjeer in its dry form, from quite a long time. Dried figs are used commonly in Indian sweets. These plumpy little fruits gives lovely crunch to the sweets.
But for some strange reason I had never tried fresh for before. So when I got these fresh figs, I went for the most common way of eating figs that’s roasting them in honey. Toasting in honey, caremelizes the figs beautifully and also enhances it’s sweetness.
Roasted figs tastes awesome as it is (did I tell you that I gulped down a few, when fresh out of oven). But why did I baked the cake out of those roasted figs ???
I am off on a road trip to Varkala beach, Kerala. It is said to be one of the beautiful beaches in India. After 4 long years we are again on the road trip. I am Not only excited because of the blue beaches but also going to have some awesome sea food there.
And when my little sister at trivandrum heard about our plans, the first thing that she asked for was ,di get some cake for me. So I used the roasted figs in cake. The cardamom flavour went very well with roasted figs. Now let’s see how this came will be revived by the little sis and her roomies.
The cake came out perfect. Moist and bursting with cardamom flavour. And do you see some white spots ?? That’s because I was too lazy to grind the sugar and I always do that. So if you have bigger granules of sugar , then first measure and then grind it.
