Fig Cake | Bolo de Figo

Summer is here and has been fantastic! Besides the warm weather and the beautiful sunny days, Summer for me means more than anything else, fruit! And the king of this season is without doubt the fig.

Waking up, grab my boys and go harvesting some figs, it is what makes me happy! With them, we make a little bit of everything – jams, cakes, cookies or eat them fresh as they are.

For now, I leave you here a fig cake recipe. Simple, exactly how a fruit cake must be.

Ingredients:

  • 500 g of fresh figs
  • 1 Egg
  • 60 g of sugar + more to sprinkle
  • 1/2 Cup of vegetable oil
  • 100 g of flour + more to sprinkle
  • Cinnamon

Pre-heat the oven (106ºC).

Beat the egg with sugar; add the oil. At a few, add the flour, cinnamon at your taste and the figs cut in pieces.

Grease a pan and sprinkle with flour, sugar and cinnamon if you want. Fill it with the dough; sprinkle more cinnamon on top. Let it bake for about 40 to 45 minutes.

O Verão está aí e ao rubro. Para mim, o melhor do Verão é, para além do calor e do sol, a fruta da época. E o rei é sem dúvida o figo! 

Adoro acordar de manhã, pegar nos rapazes cá de casa e ir aos figos. Com eles fazemos um pouco de tudo – compotas, bolos, bolachas ou simplesmente comê-los frescos. 

Por já, deixo-vos uma receita de bolo de figo. É simples, exactamente como um bolo de fruta deve ser. 

  • 500 g figos frescos
  • 1 Ovo
  • 60 g açúcar + um pouco para polvilhar 
  • 1/2 Chávena de óleo vegetal 
  • 100 g farinha + um pouco para polvilhar
  • Canela q.b.

Pré-aqueça o forno (160ºC). 

Bater o ovo com o açúcar; adicionar o óleo. Aos poucos, adicionar a farinha, a canela q.b. e os figos cortados aos pedaços. 

Untar uma forma e polvilhar com farinha, açúcar e canela se quiser. Colocar a massa e espalhar mais canela no topo. Levar ao forno durante 40 a 45 minutos.
