Fig cake with olive oil => preparation

Prepare a foamy mix of eggs, sugar and salt. Gradually add olive oil, yogurt, rum and lemon.

Mix the grits with baking powder and slowly add to the mixture. Pour the dough into the cake mold slab-sided with baking parchment paper, oil coated and besprent with crumbs. Even the dough in the mold. Imprint fig halves on the top, so that the juicy side faces up. Put the mold in oven heated to 180º C and bake until the cake gets the color of “old gold” (approximately 45 minutes). Then let it cool down in the mold.


If you exchange a spoon (or two) of grits with the same amount of instant polenta, the result will be even better. Of course, just like experienced housewives know, this is one of those (in)famous cognitions acquired on the edge of dispair. In the night, when you stand behind a nearly finished cake, when you realize you don’t have any grits in the house! 😳
