Originally, preparing figs for this cake was done as a part of preparing the Wine Marmalade recipe. The cake was inspired by this recipe (completely different), but I had to be true to myself and change the things.
200 gr. flour for baking (with baking powder)
200 gr. soft butter
130 gr. sugar
1/2 tsp salt
Zest of one lemon
Pinch of cloves
700 gr. (approximately) figs
Recently I saw a lot of blog articles on bakery with figs. Here’s my super-simple idea.
All you need to do is take a Puff Pastry dough and cut it into rectangles. Then you will need to form edges for your rectangles – you can either use strips of the dough, or use the method illustrated and explained below:
Cut out the inner square, retreating from the edge approximately for 1cm. Then tuck in the edges and the corners in a manner similar to making an origami “boat”. Bake in oven for 15 minutes at 180C.
This is how they look when coming out of the oven:
Now all that remains is to press the center of our improvised “plate” a bit, add the figs and the cheese and pour some honey on the top. Then bake it for 5 more minutes, the cheese will become a bit brownish and the figs will become softer.
