Fresh figs

G came home with a treat the other day, some lovely fresh figs. Unfortunately these figs were not from our trees, not having much success with them so far, probably too exposed a site for them as they are staying like stalks!

Anyway, these lovely fresh figs, although only a few, went straight into a cake that I've been wanting to make for simply ages. Fresh fig, raspberry and almond cake.

Fresh fig, raspberry and almond cake
The recipe is from Kylie Kwong's book 'Heart and soul' and contains raspberries and ground almonds. If you know how to make a friand, it's basically the same mix - egg whites, icing sugar, ground almonds, melted butter, a little flour and milk. The figs were sliced and lightly pressed on top of the cake.
