I love love love figs....After 4 years without eating them, I found them in a small grocery store. I bought as much as I could, and I multiply them in different dishes that I have redapted from before....ENJOY!!
Goat cheese and figs cake with honey
300 grams of mild goat cheese (room temperature)
½ cup of cream (I used 35%)
½ cup of milk
80 grams of sugar (more depending on your taste)
Seeds of 1 vanilla bean
80 grams of flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
Sugar (to sprinkle the figs)
Honey to serve
Wash and cut the figs in quarters.
Mix the flour with the baking powder, and sift it. Set aside.
Beat the egg yolks and sugar until is creamy. Incorporate the milk, cream, and vanilla seeds. Add the goat cheese. Slowly incorporate the flour/baking powder avoiding lumps.
Beat the egg whites until foamy. Incorporate the egg whites foam into the batter.
Grease and flour an oven proof dish. Preheat the oven to 350F. Put the batter in the dish, and distribute the figs. Sprinkle with sugar.
Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown, and a toothpick comes clean. Let it cool, and sprinkle with honey....ENJOY!!
