Today I'm back with yet another baking post after almost a month long break. I think it's safe to say I am more settled into the intense workload. As far as you need to know, I have another post prepared for you, during THE WEEK, in honour of BakingBoutique's up and coming third birthday which I honestly can't wait for. 😁😄
To concoct this very Autumn-y cake, you'll need:
100g of butter, softened
150g of golden caster sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
125g of plain flour
75g of ground almonds
1 tsp of baking powder
100g of natural yoghurt
7 large figs
175g of raspberries
30g of flaked almonds
For the crumble topping:
50g of flour
25g of cold butter, cut into cubes
35g of soft,light brown sugar
First and foremost, pre-heat the oven to 180℃/160℃ fan/ Gas Mark 4. With this, grease and line the base for a 20cm springy cake tin.
To make the crumble topping, rub the flour and butter together with your fingertips until the mixture is crumbly. Stir in the sugar.
As for the cake, cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Next add in the egg, a little at a time, beating well after each addition.
Subsequently, beat in the vanilla extract. Sift in the flour and incorporate the almonds and baking powder.
Fold in 1 large tbsp of the flour into the mixture,prior to adding the rest, and alternate this with the yoghurt.
After this, snip off the fig stalks and halve four of them, chopping the rest. Stir in the chopped figs and approximately 1/3 of the raspberries into the batter.
Then, scrape this into the prepared tin. Lay the halved figs on top and sprinkle with the remaining of the raspberries. Scatter the crumble on top,following the rest of the raspberries,then the flaked almonds.
Bake this in the oven for 1hr and 15 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
Leave the cake in the tin for around 15 minutes and then run a palette knife around the outside of the cake.
Slide the cake onto a serving plate and volia!
