Fig-almond-rose cake|How to make fig-almond-rose cake from scratch

Its been a long time since the last cake post on the blog .So today its time for a cake.Today on the  blog is rustic fig and almond cake. Figs provide the fruity element to this awesome,moist,buttery  nutty cake. Figs are one of my favourite foods and I can have them in any form at any time.More over its a fruit of great health benefits and sunnah of our prophet. Rose water is a typical middle eastern  speciality that lifts this cake to a higher notch .I have just blitzed the almonds with skin in a grinder and used for this recipe but you can go with ready made almond flour too.

This recipe is adapted from here .I have cut down the original recipe to half .So this recipe will give you a four inch cake .Fig-almond-rose cake is perfect for a tea party or just good to enjoy with your family. Its a no fuss and no fancy ingredient recipe. The steps are the same as you do for a basic butter cake with the new additions of almond flour and rose water.I served it with London diary praline and caramel ice cream but simple whipped cream would also suffice. As you already know my bakes are mild on sugar .So if you prefer sweeter cakes do add a bit extra sugar.Make sure all your ingredients are at room temperature. 

Hop on to the recipe ....
