Back to school,which is by the way last week of it,I can’t believe how quick this academic year was,do you like Summer vacation or no?
I found a jar of fig jam about to be expired in the fridge,then remembered that I do have a recipe somewhere that has it in the ingredients,so I took out all my cookbooks,searched till I found it in my small favorite book Cafe Cakes, you know that these small specified books you find in bookshops are a lot better than big famous ones, that’s what I found out after all these years of cooking and baking .
Very easy to do and delicious.
Ingredients and method:
*125 gm butter ( I used 2 tablespoons butter and 1/4 cup vegetable oil,worked out just fine)
* 2 eggs.
* 1/2 cup brown sugar.
* 1 1/2 cup flour.
* 2 tsp baking powder.
* 1/2 cup fig jam.
* 1 cup raisins ( I added a bit of walnuts also)
*1/2 cup milk.
* beat butter and sugar till creamy then add eggs,jam,raisins,flour and baking powder till you get a creamy batter.
* pour in a medium sized baking pan ( any shape you like) and bake in a medium heated oven for 45-50 minutes.
* cool and decorate with cream cheese topping or whipped cream if you like.
