Fresh Fig Cake With Amaretto Fig Compote And 2 Great Dessert Wines
The last few weeks I’ve felt like the traveling fig lady, as my tree was producing like crazy so everywhere I went I’d ask, “Do you like figs? Can I bring you some?” So I’d deliver a box of figs and a mini Fresh Fig Cake!
Is it weird that I can’t stand Almond flavoring in cakes but love munching on almonds and pouring a tbsp, or 2, or 3 into desserts? I can’t explain it. I can only be directed by instinct, imagination, and the desire to please my taste buds. And they’re enjoying Amaretto paired with fresh figs in the compote covering this moist vanilla cake.
I also have the succulent scoop on a couple of wine pairings should you choose to indulge in having your cake and cocktail too!
