An abundance of home-grown apples and home-grown figs? Applesauce-Fig cake!
The apples on my tree mature in late summer, sort of early to my way of thinking, and I process much of it into applesauce. Here is a great recipe that was tested on members of my art class, all of whom have discerning palates!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted before measuring
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 cup reconstituted dried figs. To reconstitute, soak in hot water 10 minutes and drain
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 2 cups applesauce (I used unsweetened)
