Super Moist Fig Cake

Well, if you are fruit lover and enjoy moist supple sweetness of fruits in desserts, then this is for you. I personally loves fig and dates in baking recipes, although figs are not as sweet as dates, but there crunch delight takes over very well in so many ways its been cooked. This recipe turned out to be so good and very moist and soft that it just melts aways in your mouth leaving behind just traces of a beautiful dessert :)

Things you will need:

100 gms butter
1 cup castor sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 egg
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped fresh figs
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 cups chopped fresh figs
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest


Preheat oven at 180 degrees Celcius. Grease the cake pan and set aside.
Sift together the dry ingredients together. Beat butter with castor sugar and brown sugar until creamy, add eggs one by one. Add lemon juice and zest along with vanilla extract. Add salt and beat.

Fold in dry ingredients and then with figs. Add water gradually. Fold lightly with wooden spoon until well combined. Transfer mix to the prepared pan and bake for about 30 minutes or your skewer comes out clean.

Enjoy with whipped cream!
