How to cook fig cake "Crimean September" step by step with photos

We will use ground almonds in the filling, so start by peeling them. We scald the nuts with boiling water, then wash them immediately with cold running water. We repeat this process a couple of times. After that, the kernel just pops out of the skin when you press it.

Then we pour the peeled almonds in a layer onto a baking tray and dry them in a preheated oven.

If you keep almonds for a couple of hours in the freezer they grind up great in a coffee grinder. If you like your nuts to get on your teeth, you'd better grind them in a mortar.

For the dough, grind the cold butter, salt and sugar in a food processor with the flour.

Add the cold water to the mixture and knead quickly to a dough that you leave in the fridge for an hour.

After the specified time, roll out the dough thinly and place it on a lightly floured baking sheet (D 26 cm). Prick the dough often with a fork and bake it for about 10 minutes until it is half-ready in a preheated 180 degrees Celsius oven. oven.

For the cream, mix the milk with the sugar, eggs and softened butter, vanilla sugar, cognac and almond chips. Mix well with a whisk. Pour 2/3 of the mixture into a small saucepan and with constant stirring bring it to the point of thickening.

Spread the cream on the prepared pastry base. Cut the figs into 4 slices, without cutting all the way through, and place them in the cream, pressing them in a little. Sprinkle everything with 1 spoonful of brown sugar to caramelize.

Then pour the remaining raw egg-milk mixture on top and sprinkle with brown sugar again.

Put the cake into a preheated 180 degrees oven and bake for about 30 minutes until the cream is melted. Let the ready pie cool a little, put a teaspoon of goat cream cheese in each fig cake and decorate it with raspberries. Goat cream cheese melts softly on warm caramelized figs and gives a unique tangy flavor. If you don't like it, you can replace it with any other cream cheese or ice cream, or generally do without it.
